Melissa’s Owl-some Card

While my Tom and I have been running around Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Parks we’ve come across huge herds of elk and bison, some pelicans, a grizzly bear, beaver, and moose. We counted five mountain ranges we’ve trekked so far: Pryor, Absaroka, Yellowstone, Tetons, and Big Horn. Tom’s Uncle Warren has been Chief Ranger at Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons parks (and several other parks). He and Aunt Joan have been the perfect tour guides, and we love hearing their stories as much as we love seeing the scenery.

I honestly haven’t seen any owls, but I brought Melissa Smith’s card along with me, and it certainly fits in with the beautiful scenery and amazing critters we’ve observed during our week in Wyoming. Melissa gave this to me recently during one of our swaps – I love everything Melissa makes.
