"Feral ~ from feminine of ferus wild: having escaped from domestication and become wild"...




Monday

Photogenic Sunday's hike

This is me and my daughter Annabel. 
She arrived on Saturday along with her smart & handsome husband Christopher, 
and our two grandcats, Rugen & Monkey. 
(more on them later)

She lets me tackle her in the snow to this day, 
because, well, mom.

But now she knows this really cool move
where she hooks her foot around my leg 
and I drop like a rock.

I take her down with me though so it's all good.

In a snowy way!

Isnt that the way all mother/daughter relationships are? 

Winter family reunions will be interesting 
when Im a feral 92...

Anyhow,


She's very talented.  
She also knows how to make snowmen on burnt trees.

in the valley across from our house!

First we have to get past big baby Ebony.  
He thinks we always have snacks.

He looks like a giant Angus beef snack himself.


We also have to get past turkey footprints 
without taking a million photos...

 Annabel likes to take pictures like her MOM!

Bull thistles that the finches feed on make it hard not to take photos too.


And the elk wreath we put up on the mailbox makes it even harder to pass up!

Then of course there's photogenic Ranger.


Photography-itis; is this why 
Chris the soon-to-be Doctor hides behind trees 
as a preventative health measure?

And then theres the puzzle rocks that beg for a picture,

Annabel's snowy boots,


and Mr. Foresterman's directionals can be photogenic too.

And of course doing the limbo is REALLY photogenic!

The whole dang valley and everything in it
is so PHOTOGENIC!

Mr. Foresterman's blue steel look always DEMANDS a photo.


  But heres the real photo mystery;
Does anyone 
KNOW WHAT THIS PHOTOGENIC OBJECT IS?  

Seriously.  We haven't a clue!

We do know that it is a photogenic mystery 
right here in Powder River County!

Any guesses?

  1. Ok...here's my take on it...
    It's the entrance marker to the oldest ranch in the area. (of course the buildings all burned in a long ago forest fire) That metal piece on the top was to hold a lantern to light the way for stranded travelers, and there's a buried treasure in the hills behind you! Have fun looking for it, and when you find it, I want a percentage as a thank you for giving you the "heads up"! :) Merry Christmas!

  2. Oh firstly two blog posts I am impressed:) I love this photogenic extravaganza. It is full of everything that is right in the world and that is the best feeling in the world. Home and family. Yes indeed that is what it is all about. Merry Christmas Feral. Mr. Foresterman, Annabel and soon to be Doctor Christopher. In my country we always give special attention to the doctors:) Oh yes and all your four-legged family too.

  8. I say "uncle" to that object. This is one spectacular group of photos! We still have not had snow yet...can you believe it? Enjoy the holidays, and please don't forget to take your camera wherever you go.

  9. When you have a camera and frosty weather and such handsome people ... then...EVERYTHING is photogenic. I hope your mom-daughter snow-walk-trips will go on and on for decades just because they produce such fun blog fodder. No guesses on the mystery thing.

    1. Can you share that information with me? My Hero had no idea what it is but thought it had something to do with making wagon wheels. It is hard for him to except that he does not know all things farming:) We need to know it is driving us mad:) :)

    2. Nope - sorry. Only if you got a bottle of Pendleton...After all, it is made in Canada ;)

  13. I love this, that valley looks so tempting to walk through and take pictures in! Especially with such photogenic people! (and animals we cant for get Ebony and Ranger...and the 2 cats you forgot to tell us more about)
    I'm guessing some kind of well, I may have to ask my husband he has a lot more ideas than me on stuff. I could maybe be bribed to trade a bottle of Pedleton although even though its made up here we can not buy it up here so you would have to get something else lol.

  14. I am pretty sure that thing fell off the International Space Station! =o)

I am feral, so although I dont respond at all like most domesticated bloggers, I will try my best - Thank you for even wanting to leave a comment, as it may draw me out from the woods from whence I came!

Or under a rock, it depends most days...
