07.07.15 – Down the road in Pinedale, Wyoming

pinedale-tag-4c07.07.15 – If you Google “things to do in Boulder, Wyoming” you get lots of information about the nearby town of Pinedale, Wyoming.  Boulder has 75 residents and Pinedale has 2,000 residents. It’s just a few miles from Boulder and today we drove there to explore.  Turns out it is a wonderful, pretty small town with rivers and creeks running through it.  We stopped at two of the parks in town and enjoyed the beauty in each.  This town is currently in my 10 top favorite towns in America.  I could easily live here!

One thing I want to point out is the sage bushes you will see in most all our pictures.  Sage bushes grow everywhere,

Sagebrush-steppe habitat near the Greater Sage-Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) lek located on Bureau of Land Management, BLM, land near Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, eastern Oregon, USA, April, 2009_OR_0572along the highway, in everyone’s yards, between houses, generally in any open area.  They are so abundant that I had to find out why they are everywhere.  It looks like people don’t want to cut their grass so they let it grow.  That’s not it (but I still think it’s part of it!).

Sage bushes are needed by animals (that are abundant here) and insects.  The animals eat it during the winter when there is snow everywhere and most things die.  Insects eat them which is good since birds eat the insects all the time and in winter the sagebushes help the insects live.  The sage bushes are the silvery, grey, little greenish bushes that cover most all the landscape.   You get kind of use to seeing them everywhere and after a while it looks normal.

We walked through a lot of the facility and are excited about going back there soon.  Here’s a picture of one of the pool areas.  We’re planning on going back one day next week and spend the day there!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
