Cowboys, Cowdogs, and outlaws beware! It was a cowboy and cowdog theme this year for our non-Halloween evening. Chip, who got a small stuffed cow earlier in the day, wanted to dress up as an outlaw. And Parker dropped by for a super hero moment dressed as Woody from Toy Story. There was lots of [...]
For months, I have driven by this industrial lot that is filled with old gas pumps from another century. I can't explain why, but I always wanted to stop and photograph them. Finally this last week with storm clouds gathering, I stopped and asked the owner if I could take some photos. I live in [...]

The end of the day, the end of the week, and you can almost hear the quiet hanging over the mountains.
