“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity” John Muir
For our weekly Sunday hike, we drove up to the Medicine Bow National Forest west of Laramie, Wyoming to do some hiking. I knew the Snowy Range Scenic Byway wasn’t yet open completely, but we had been itching to get up that way for a while now, so thought we’d at least check out the area for future trips.
After some research, we decided to hike the Little Laramie trail head, just outside of Centennial, WY. Here, there are about 8 miles of trails running along and near the north fork of the Laramie River. While, the trails lacked stunning high country vistas, the hike was pleasant enough with lots of mature pine forest and plenty of wetlands and croaking frogs to accompany.
Don’t you think that Italy is always warm and sunny during summer. I happened to be in Venice on rainy days. Sun came out a couple of times letting know that it’s a gift, and we should appreciate its appearance with more respect. ( I do, I do) I need to admit that I love to do photography on the days with less sun. The images come out much cleaner with less contrast, colors are brighter and have more nuances.
