Wide Open Spaces

This is an old outbuilding made out of tin ceiling tiles
To many people
this isn't a very pretty part of the country, this rugged land
where we call home. 
Although we aren't immune to the explosion of
growth there still is a lot of area here in Wyoming where
you can drive for quite a while and never see another
car, house or mailbox

This is a herd of buffalo which are
raised like cattle on a ranch.  These are few and far between. 
Many black angus dot the countryside as well as deer. 
Wyoming has its own look, rather desolate, especially in the late fall
and winter.  I guess we like it because we can still breathe
sometimes and feel free.


Amanda took these pictures, I was driving.  Thanks for the use of them Bean.

It's the same out on our prairie - you said it very well - breathing and feeling free out there.

I would love it there... I love areas where there is not many people.... Those wide open spaces definitely call my name.

Thanks for sharing the beauty.
