Wind River Canyon Blog
Imagine a beautiful golden canyon in a far-away land. The Wind River Canyon, in the state of Wyoming, is one of the very few wild places that have remained relatively unspoiled by over-development. The Wind River runs fast and clean, the junipers have berries that feed wild birds, wildflowers bloom, and over 100 species of birds fly in this magical Wind River Canyon. Bighorn Sheep, Elk and Deer have all been seen from our cabin steps, and four species of hummingbirds come to nest and raise their young in the Wind River Canyon every Summer.
My Wind River Canyon Blog will be about my experiences with Mother Nature in the canyon's ecosystem, and the way in which I capture those magic moments with affordable equipment, cheap software and lots of serendipity. I hope you enjoy the ride as much as my wife and I have.
