Just a couple of blocks from our house sits a lake and wildlife preserve area. Our town had a wonderful path built all the way around the lake, and we've taken some very enjoyable walks there. Ducks, Canada Geese, pelicans, and many other waterbirds are regular residents of the lake, and fun to watch. I could live without the mosquitoes though!
We took another trip to the Big horn Mountains, and investigated some things we had not before. Going to the tippy top of Sheep Mountain to visit the lookout was amazing. We saw breathtaking views from the up there, and it's a place I'd very much like to visit again, maybe with a picnic lunch.

|Just below the lookout, Megan is enjoying being at the top of the world. I think the elevation was just under 10,000 feet. The wind was really blowing up there, and it was cold! Next time we go, I'll take a warmer jacket.|

July was a great month!
