I awoke early one morning after camping in the badlands to find the landscape filled with fog. Just as I arrived in the park, I caught this lone tree at sunrise.
Inside the badlands, I noticed this one area of the park a year ago, but did not have the opportunity to photograph it. I came back and the time was right. I was fortunate that it was wet this year and caught a small stream flowing forth.
As I headed west, I opened up my old Rand McNally Road Map and looked for green. I spotted Medicine Bow National Forest in Southern Wyoming. I had never been there, so off I went. I found a perfect camping spot and after a good night sleep, I was treated to a wonderful sunrise.
Finally, I leave you with this, the mountain wildflowers of Medicine Bow National Forest.
