Just wanted a place to put my thoughts, vent, celebrate, whatever came to mind when things happen. I am interested in a variety of things. Politics, human rights, Reading, Computers, Cultural Anthropology, and more.
I am originally from San Diego, CA. I have lived all over the United States along with living in Germany and Massachusetts while in the Air Force. I moved to Wyoming in September of 2001 and haven’t regretted it one bit. I do miss the things available in San Diego, but do not miss the traffic or the number of people. If you want to see some of the Wild West, it is still around up here in Wyoming.
I take picture, lots of them. If you’d like to see them, please visit my Four Blue Hills – Wyoming Foto Blog
I love to read, have all my life. I especially enjoy History, Biographies, Mysteries and Folklore.
Photography is my hobby, during the summer months I take a lot of pictures. Not so many during the winter months because it gets very cold here in Wyoming and driving around wide ranges of open areas is not a good idea. My life is ruled by “Murphy’s Law”; I would break down in the middle of nowhere (lots of it up here) and in a dead cell zone during a blizzard. So, I don’t.
I live about 100 miles from the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park and 6 miles from the Montana border. Love it there too, lived there for ten years when I was a kid. Wyoming is a very pretty state, flat and treeless in some areas, mountainous and green in others. You should come visit!
I am a veteran of the United States Air Force. Early 80′s. Ya, getting up there.
I like having a blog. While I “say” it is to vent, celebrate, etc… I found, after starting this blog, that I am not much of a writer. I enjoyed it, but found myself extremely limited with the topic I chose to write about, my knowledge is/was limited. Not a good thing. Having said that, I also find I don’t really have a whole heck of a lot to say at times. I post articles, videos, photographs and items that interest me and while reading them I think about many things. Then, I try to write. Brain farts galore, insecurities about my writing abound, along with wondering, since I really don’t consider myself to be extremely original in many of my thoughts, if it has all been said one way or another. I really don’t like beating the proverbial “dead horse”. Have no fear, you are safe, in that aspect, while visiting this blog. I just post what grabs my attention, not here to influence or persuade any one to change their minds. Altho, I would imagine, with the things I do post, you can see what moves, influences, or provides something to myself. If you don’t like it, that is ok too. I don’t mind. Everyone has their own opinion, a good thing, the world would be oh, so boring if not.
I do not mind hearing about any thing I post. In fact, I love it! So, comment away. Feel free to ask me any thing that comes to mind.
The name of the blog, Four Blue Hills, is a tribute to the four mountain ranges that surround the area where I live. The Pryor Mountains, Beartooth Mountains, Big Horn Mountains and the Absaroka Mountains. Beautiful, beautiful mountains, as the picture above shows. That road, going up the mountain, in the picture, has a 16% grade. Drove DOWN it the first year I lived here, took me 9 more years to go anywhere near it again. I’m proud of myself, have been back up and down three times. Closed in the winter! (It is known as 14A when going OVER the Big Horn Mountains). All of the header pictures are photos I have taken of scenes around the Big Horn Basin area where I live.
