We have had the good fortune of visiting old friends in Wyoming several times when we lived in the Denver area. There in the plains of Southern Wyoming we met a sculptor of metal art pieces, usually playfully utilizing garden tools and tractor parts to create birds and colorful characters. While visiting Dutch the first time we met on his property, this sculpture had interesting company and I snapped the pic. He was gracious enough to let me purchase a couple of his pieces and we displayed them in our front yard before moving into our RV full-time.

Nestled among the Medicine Bow Mountains, the Sierra Madres and the Snowy Range is the Front Range of Southern Wyoming. It is comprised of wide open plains with several flat, dry and brushy areas, most of which is above 7,000 feet. We always enjoyed our visits in the summer and fall, usually seeing an abundance of wildlife.

“Remnants of a Glorious Past”
Photo of the Week #29, selected in November, 2019

Bison once roamed well beyond the Midwest plains, millions having lived and fed on grasslands that ran from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico. They are even reported to have inhabited a tract that ran east to the Atlantic as far north as New York and as far south as Georgia, North Carolina and Florida. This small herd was found grazing in Wyoming, but it’s easy to imagine the bison’s glorious past.

Interestingly, according to Britannica.com, there are no buffalo in North America, only two types of bison. “Contrary to the song “Home on the Range,” buffalo do not roam in the American West. Instead, they are indigenous to South Asia (water buffalo) and Africa (Cape buffalo), while bison are found in North America and parts of Europe.”
