My son Stanley and I planned to spend a Saturday
night and Sunday morning in the Snowy Range
west of Laramie. The hoped-for sunshine gave
way to low clouds shrouding the peaks. I thought
there wouldn’t be much to photograph on
this trip. But I was very pleasantly surprised
when my slides were processed. This turned out
to be one of my all-time favorite mountain pictures.
I hope you like it, too!
The Snowy Range is located in the Medicine
Bow Range of the Rocky Mountains, which run
from just north of Rocky Mountain National Park
in Colorado, to Elk Mountain, East of Rawlins,
Wyoming. The Snowies are located between Centennial
and Saratoga, or, you might say between Laramie
and Rawlins, Wyoming. They reach in the 11,000-12,000
foot range, and have snow year-round. When my
Dad first visited the snowy range, it was the
4th of July, and he actually got snowed on.
What a great place to get relief from the
August, Snowy Range,
west of Laramie, Wyoming
