Hot Springs State Park: Bighorn River after rainfall

In the last number of days, we have had some unusual torrents of rain for this time of year. Because of the red soil, the Bighorn River turns a reddish brown color.

On the banks of the river, some of the foliage (below) has yet to spring to life because of the minor flooding.

My wife, who took these shots (since my camera is in for repairs), wanted us to see the sunset.

the water looks so pretty... i'm very jealous i can't be there to see it with you. if i make it home for a visit, i want to come to wyoming. it just won't be as good if i don't.
