Rocky Mountain Memories

It is always exciting to discover childhood memories, but the process of unearthing them takes an advance pep talk. However, once those treasures are uncovered, I forget all about the rummaging, lifting, and dusty part.

This is a post filled with old, scratchy images, and every one of them shows a glimpse of Rocky Mountain beauty, from Colorado to Montana, taken between the mid-1980s to 2000.

The first one should be easy; bison roaming with a stunning backdrop of the Tetons.

I don't remember this, but "Sand Mountain Pass - Sawtooths" is written on the back. Goodness, I haven't been in the Sawtooth Range since, well, too long.

Somewhere in Wyoming. It was taken too long ago for me to remember exactly where. I should have been better about writing on the backs.

The next few have trees, water, and are beautiful settings . . . in Colorado or Idaho.

Lesson: Never throw away memories. Preserve them, cherish them, and share them with others to hopefully brighten someone's day.
