Guess the State

I was looking through some pictures this morning, trying to decide what to post on my blog when I came across the photo shown here on the right. I wondered how many of my loyal readers (if I have any loyal readers) could guess where this photo was taken. Those of you who only recently discovered my blog, and who have only known me for a couple of years, probably won't guess. It is not as obvious as you might think.

Speaking of loyal readers, I am thinking I have at least three who check here periodically. Two of those three are shown in the photo below...

This image, which is four years old, of my three kids (L-R: Shannon, Amy and Eric) was taken as they prepared to go whitewater rafting on the Gallatin River. It was taken several days before the moose photo. It was not in the same state that the moose photo was taken.

Care to guess where the moose were? If yes, leave a comment. How? At the end of this post, you'll see a time followed by a number and the word "comments." Click on "comments" and you'll be directed to the page where you type in your comment. Just follow the directions on the screen. It is easy.

This is a dual test to see if, a) I have more than three loyal readers and b) any of those loyal readers can name the right state.


  1. Wyoming? In Wyoming at Grand Teton National Park? In Wyoming at Grand Teton National Park off of Teton Park Road? In Wyoming at Grand Teton National Park off of Teton Park Road near Jackson Lake?
    That's where it looks like to me. Of course, maybe those aren't the trees that I remember seeing there but they sure look like it...

    Love ya!

  2. My most-loyal reader got it right! What a memory! Love you, too, honey. (-:

  3. reader here, but i haven't a clue. :-) i remember mike talking about that trip though!

  4. Yeah, I was there and I never would have guessed right (and if I had guessed right, it would have been a Very lucky guess!).

    It reminds me, though, of when we were looking for moose and you spotted one and were trying to tell us where it was. You said, "Do you see that tree over there?" This, in a field of trees and bushes, had us in hysterics. Remember? :-)

  5. Actually, it got worse. When you said, "What tree?" I replied with, "the green one." Dad and I do bring that up occasionally.

  6. I knew it was at the Grand Teton's but I was too late to respond. Thanks for ruining it Dad!! And if I remember correctly that was the spot where we got out of the car and walked up pretty close to them. And I wonder if Shannon was with us then - I think she may of stayed back because she didn't feel good???


Please say something...
