Great time at PEOPLE OF THE EARTH DAYS in Thermopolis, Wyoming

Hi All! Well, the first ever PEOPLE OF THE EARTH DAYS is over, but we’re still smiling. We met so many wonderful people, and we had such fun! We have to tell you, the events were spectacular, but from a personal perspective, our favorite was the ice cream and coffee hour at the Black Bear Café. Intimate, one-on-one, that was special for us. However, the trips to Legend Rock Petroglyphs, Wind River Canyon, and the Wyoming Dinosaur Center were like little mini-vacations. We are grateful to have had the expert guidance of John Fish, Barb Vietti, and Greg Willson. Each event was so different, and so educational, we loved each one. The Thermopolis Chamber of Commerce is already working on how to make it better, with new and fascinating events. Thanks tremendously to all of you who filled out the comment cards. The Chamber is listening! Your observations and recommendations DID count. If you’re considering attending next year, please go to: thermopolischamber.org, and click on PEOPLE OF THE EARTH DAYS, and let the chamber know! Next year the event will be held at the same time as the nightly rodeo–and should be tremendously fun. We can’t wait! Hope to see you all there!

Rain at Red Canyon Ranch

Rained here last night. The air this afternoon is just crystal clear and fragrant with the mixed scents of wildflowers, lilacs, and the tang of juniper. 1.jpg

Rainy Day Rodeo

After all the glorious rain we’ve had, the drive into town today proved very interesting! In these parts, we call it “4-Wheel Drive Rodeo,” meaning we bucked and twisted our way out of the ranch in 4-wheel-low-differential-locked while dodging the low-hanging tree branches. Jeez, it was fun…
