BCNRA sign dedication

As many of you know, one of my pictures was used on a sign at Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area.  Ahnya and I got back from our Pennsylvania trip in time to run over for the new sign dedication and talk with all of the other contributors but one. The ones I knew I hadn’t seen in a while, and some I had talked to on blogs and facebook, but was finally able to meet in person for the first time.  There was also an informative presentation by the artist-in-residence.  Ahnya took pictures of some of the ceremonies.

Since we arrived early, we did have time to run out to the Dryhead and see some horses.  It was the first I saw Orion and Oak.

Closer to the road was Hidalgo’s band with Oak

Way out from the interpretive site was Corona’s band with Orion

  1. Wow, good job Ahnya! those are some great photos 🙂

    Shawn, what happened to the beard? 🙂 Congratulations again on the sign… and thanks for the Dryhead photos.

  2. It was cool seeing you and Ahnya at the dedication. I think that photo of yours was a great choice for the sign. It not only shows the beauty of the horses, but also of the Range and Nature. 🙂 Hope our paths cross out there again sometime.

  3. Your sign looks great! The picture is a great representation of the high dun and roan factors in this herd. The other signs look really nice too. I really like what theyve done with them.
