Hansen Barn

"This was the Hansen Ranch on Spring Gulch Ranch. Clifford Peter Hansen (October 16, 1912 – October 20, 2009) was a American politician from the state of Wyoming. A Republican, he served as the 26th Governor of Wyoming. I took this shot on Christmas Eve when out on a nice evening ride. When I rounded the bend and saw the light I knew I had to act quickly. I almost locked my keys in the car but if I did it didn't matter I got a nice shot for an early Christmas gift." — Kathy Tompkins (Kathy Tompkins/Flickr — click to enlarge)

Bohemians

Bohemians - Wyoming

Photographer Kathy Lichtendahl says of this photo “I decided to take a quick trip up to Beck Lake … just to see if any birds were migrating through. As soon as I stopped the car I could see and hear several hundred Bohemian Waxwings making the most of the russian olive fruit. What an amazing sight they are with their rusty colored butts and the bright yellow and red wing trim!” (Kathy Lichtendahl – click to enlarge)

-27

Soda Butte Creek, Wyoming

Photographer Beau Johnston says of this photo taken in Yellowstone: “It was about -27F, according to a vehicle thermometer, that morning and Round Valley was socked in with fog. It had started to snow just as the sun was making its way over the Thunderer Mountain. I made my way down along Soda Butte Creek to frame the photo. The morning fog, combined with the falling snow, made for a dramatic sunrise.” (Beau Johnston – click to enlarge)

I grew up in Sundance, where a lot of tourists enter the state to visit Devil’s Tower and head to Yellowstone. I was surprised how many times people asked me what the big “wooden things” along the interstate were. One even asked me if they were used to grow grapes. – Ben Tonak, WyoFile Web Manager

Morning Commute – Hot Springs State Park

Hot Springs State Park

North of Thermopolis, WY there are two turnouts on the highway that overlook Hot Springs State Park where the warm water flows out of “Big Spring” and into cooling ponds called terraces. When it overflows into the Big Horn River it freezes into the beautiful ice falls. The warm water also creates rising steam. (Mary Gordon – click to enlarge)
