Last year I wrote a little blog about growing up in Wyoming, in the Rocky Mountains and included some images of the incredible landscape in Winter, having just visited in January. Today ItThought I would just post a little update written by my brother, author Mark Jenkins. It is a great read and worth thinking about.
While I haven't lived in Wyoming for 30 years, I grew up there and it holds a very special place in my heart. With family there, I visit as often as possible. In January of this year, my husband and our three grown up children transversed the state from Laramie in the SouthEast, to Jackson in the Northwest. The sparse landscape looks forboding and beautiful with the snow, the wind adding to the sense of isolation. While there are many iconic images of Wyoming, most notably, those of Ansel Adams, I wanted to show it's simple everyday beauty. This gallery aims to capture that simplicity.
