Siam.
During our stay at the Lazy L&B Ranch, a frequent visitor was a Donkey and Siam. Siam had really great patterns on his side and was really cool for a mule. When it was going to rain Siam and Donkey would stand under these cottonwood trees facing the same direction, and sure enough it would rain within about 10 minutes. I thought Siam was very interesting and asked someone to tell me “the story of Siam”. They said years ago, one of the mares on the ranch was pregnant and there was lots of excitement when she was going to give birth. When the time came, the owner of the ranch waited and when the foal appeared, the owner thinking he was going to have a pretty new horse looked in amazement at the foal, realizing the father was none other than the donkey, he declared “shit, its a mule”, thus the name S.I.A.M. đŸ™‚

Against a Wyoming Sky

Yesterday Evelyn and I took a drive down to the Apsaroka National Forest and rode a ridge line for a little while. It is incredibly beautiful there and we will go back today for a while. On one of the ridges I saw there beautiful old weathered pine tree standing against the contrast of puffy clouds and blue sky. Wyoming’s beauty is often in its simplicity with nature, that is why I love visiting so much.
