This morning we decided to take a drive to Story, Wyoming. We didn’t know what we would find there, we just figured that it would be a nice drive. What we discovered was a very cool area full of walking trails and a fish hatchery. We spent the morning exploring and enjoying some family time.
This is a picture of one of the holding ponds at the hatchery. While there is a serious purpose to this place, my goal in these pictures was to capture just how beautiful it is.
The creek and the flowers lining it made for a peaceful stroll with the family.
The kids love getting out and exploring. It is such a change for us to have these lush green areas rather than desert and sagebrush. But I have learned that I need to check for ticks… A reality around here, unfortunately. So far, we’ve avoided them.
The move to Wyoming has been very good for my family. While it isn’t perfect, and nothing in life is, I can say that being here has put us all in a different state of mind. A more relaxed state. My husband is smiling again, our kids love being near their grandparents, and I can’t get enough of the beauty.
