Reinner Wildlife Area Near Hyattville Wyoming







I am still working for the Big Horn County Weed and Pest.  Today we were cutting and spraying russian olive trees (considered a pest) on the Reinner Wildlife Refuge.  I thought it was some pretty cool looking country. Reinner is about 50 miles southwest of Burlington, WY between Hyattville and Ten Sleep Wyoming.

Halloween and Tylers Birthday








Julia and Tyler were quite creative in carving their own pumpkins.  Julia's was sleeping including a night cap  and Tyler followed a pattern of a cat.  Both worked hard in drawing and tracing their carvings.  

The next two pictures were taken during Tyler's 10th Birthday Party and the last photo is of a story Tyler wrote in class after eating Cheese Puff and describing what that experience is like.

Good Wyoming Deer

Today a family friend went elk hunting in the Big Horn Mountains and came home with this nice Mule Deer.  He shot it at about 300 yards.  The rack measures 28+  inches.

Family Resemblance?

Tyler is standing next to a portrait of a young Grandpa Mortenson painted by Glen.  Do you think they may be related?

Burlington vs Greybull







Julia is really enjoying volleyball this year.  This game took place in Greybull Wyoming against the Geybull.  The first three photos are during warm-ups and the remainder were taken during the game.  It's fun to watch Julia have fun with volleyball and her teammates.

Big Bob Tomato

Finally the tomatoes are beginning to ripen.  Tyler found this one hiding under one of our many bushes.  It is sitting on an 8.5 X 11 sheet of paper with a pen to give the picture some scale.

Moose Moose Everywhere




Last week we were working in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming spraying weeds in the Paint Rock lakes area.  On this particular day, we saw a total of five bull moose including these four.  Its amazing.  We see moose on almost a daily basis and so far, they have all been in different locations.  The video clip posted below is of the two moose in the bottom picture.  It was raining at the time I made the video.
