ABC Photo Challenge - Oct. 10- 16th Letter "F" & Scavenger Hunt

How would you describe a CRAZY week?  I would have to describe mine this way:  Family, hiking, more family, clearing yard for winter, finish up the garden, freeze what's left of the corn crop, fix fence before cows come home for winter, 2 photo sessions, part one of cattle round-up, truck cattle to new range, 1 more photo session and try to get some house cleaning down.  I think I need a long rest so that I can get ready for this next weeks activities.
Well enough of my story, I hope you all had a great week of finding and shooting your "E"'s.  I seen some very interesting, scary, ingenious and unique photos staring the letter "E".
This weeks letter is the letter "F" I hope you have as much fun this week find your photos as you did last week.
My photos for this week are a continuation of my visit to my neighboring  Teton National Park.  There is just so much to photography this time of year in the park.  The animals and scenery are just amazing.

The First photo is of another Black Bear who is perched high in a Hawthorn Berry tree.  I kept excepting him to FALL but for some reason these guys just seem to be able to hang on at such heights.  Viewing spread eagle.

 The second photo is of the Fall Colors.  Some Mountain Ash berries mixed amongst the Fir Trees and the hint of Orange Leaves.  Makes me think of Christmas, seeing natures made wreath and colors.
 The third photo is of the Hidden Falls.  You have to hike in about 4 miles into Cascade Canyon to get a peek at these.  Hidden Falls isn't really a fall but a cascade of water as it runs down the granite creek bed past one of the Grands into Jenny Lake below
 My Fourth photo is of the wild Frontier.  Yes it is still called Wild and it is still a Frontier.  Herds of wild buffalo roam Freely.  Numbering in the thousands, these animals are very unpredictable at best.
 My Fifth photo is of a Foggy Photo of the Teton Mountain range.  Looking past a rail Fence over the Fall winter Feeding grounds for Elk and Buffalo.
 My Sixth photo is of Fancy Footwear.  You may have heard the saying that everything in Texas is done on the large side?  Well I think that Wyoming may have them beat in the Footwear department.  Good for some fast Booking out of the area.
 Lastly is just of Pink Floral Fantasy.  Every one in a while I have to go and purchase some color for the inside.  Something that will add a bit a cheer. 
The above photos are part of the ABC Photo Challenge and Ashley Sisk Scavenger Hunt Sunday Challenge
I hope you enjoyed and weren't to bored by by my share of my Favorite places to photography.   I promise that I will go out and photography something new for next week letter.

Now it is your turn for you ABC Photo Share and for any of  those that are new to this challenge, here is what the Alphabet (ABC) Photo Challenge is all about.
The Alphabet (ABC) Photo Challenge is a means of encouraging us all to get out of our comfort zone, take our cameras and be creative with how we see each letter of the alphabet. Each week (Sunday) we start off with a new alphabet letter, we will go in consecutive order, a,b,c,d,e etc.
You can take a picture every day or just once a week using the letter as a guideline, that's totally up to you.  Then Link your Alphabet photos to the challenge thread.  If you don't get one every day, don't feel bad, this is all for fun, practice and seeing the world around you in a new way. 
Please remember to leave some love, comments and encouragement for those that are also participating in the ABC Photo Challenge, we could all use some that.  You're welcome join us whenever you'd like as often as you like! Now lets get out there and shoot something.
