Stardust Motel in Newcastle, WyomingArriving in Newcastle, Wyoming after driving through a wicked lightening storm…didn’t stay at this old hotel but love the classic mid-century sign of the Stardust Motel. Earlier that evening, forest fires burnt not too far from the highway. Smoke in the atmosphere made the sunset spectacular. Third photo – Granite Creek Canyon, Bighorn National Forest, Wyoming

One of 5 baby rabbits found by Sombra, my visiting sister-in-law's dogSombra, my visiting sister-in-law’s dog, found a nest of 5 baby rabbits in our back yard. I never would have found them otherwise, even though the nest was buried in a busy spot in the garden. The nest of fur and straw was a perfect bowl shape, covered by perennials. The little bunnies squealed and shrieked so loudly, it was hard to believe that sound came from such tiny 4 inch-long creatures. I didn’t want to handle them much because I was afraid the mother might not return to care for them if they were human-scented, but they had to be protected from Sombra, who would not leave them alone. I put them in a box, then when Suzanne and I left with Sombra to drive to Alberta, Alain put them back in the nest, covered them up again, and put celery, lettuce and carrots out every evening to entice the mama bunny back. At least one did survive because I saw it later that year in the back yard, along with the older bunnies who venture in year-round.
