Deer, moose, beautiful Wyoming scenery

Editorís Note: We have often said you can get in the truck anytime and point it in any direction and youíll see gorgeous scenery and tons of wildlife. Be sure to bring a camera! This is an incredible place to live and be able to see big game on a daily basis.

Those of you who are our regular readers probably have figured out that we have somewhat of a competition going on all the time between our photographers to see who can outdo the others and get the most awesome picture to make it to the front page and bump the other guy down. Right now, we have three photographers who all want their pictures on the front page for you to see. So we are rotating them, and we hope youíre checking back every day so you donít miss any of them. We still have a lot more great ones from over Christmas weekend that we want to share, so we hope you enjoy our Christmas photo album! These are especially for those of you who are far from home and missing Wyoming and loved ones!

Thank you to all who have written commenting on the photos. Our photographers and writers love to hear from you! Happy Holidays!
