a wyoming weekend.

  I will be the first one to admit I have called Wyoming ugly & honestly, some of it is!
But...... the majority of the state is beautiful! Kalvin calls them hidden treasures. Haha.
Due to work schedules [boo adulthood] we haven't been able to get out much on the weekends so when we were both free Saturday, we got up bright & early [9:00 am] and hit the road!
We had been told all about this hike about an hour away called The Sink & Rise.  The Sink is a spot where the river comes down and randomly disappears into the mountain side.   It was insane! All of this flowing water just falls into an underground cave & vanishes!  Then about 1/2 mile down the trail, The Rise, it randomly comes out of the mountain into a small pool before it continues down river! In the small pool, they have placed rainbow and brown trout that you can feed.  I have NEVER seen that big of trout - I wanted to fish so bad! In the video, we are probably 40-50 feet above the fish on a deck and I am not even zoomed in! They were huge!
After our trip to the Rise & Sink, we hit town, did some basic shopping & headed back towards home.  We picked up dinner at a local diner, which is so cute, and headed up the OTHER canyon to have a picnic.  This canyon is one of my favorites! You drive through awesome tunnels and the river is filled with GIANT rocks. I can't even imagine them falling off the mountain. My pictures don't do any of these spots justice, it is all so pretty.
 and of course.. the sign said no standing on rail... I just couldn't help it.
Last but not least.. a little film of our Wyoming weekend! 
and YES, I know it's so. dang. blurry.  It is crystal clear but looks awful no matter how I upload it, so I finally gave up and said who cares!!
