Saturday Snapshot

Little teeny wild west towns.   I think they are one of the coolest things ever.

When we were out for a drive a few weeks ago,  we saw all these bikes leaning against the wall of the Paradise Valley Saloon.  It struck me as funny.   Also on the wall if you can see them, are  'brands'...cattle brands of all the local ranchers.





I figured  the cattle brands kind of goes with my barbed wire post of Wednesday.  The pictures were taken on the same day, same outing.

Paradise Valley is about 40 miles from the town we live in, and on the way back, the bikers passed us.  We were stopping to take pictures of the mountains  and hawks,  so I got a shot of them too.




I am linking up to Saturday Snapshot, hosted by Alyce from  At Home With Books.  I don't always get a chance to comment on every single picture submitted, but I love looking at them.

I guess they needed to quench their thirst along the way.

They needed to refuel! Great pics.

How interesting - and how utterly unlike any landscape in the UK! There's a difference in terminology as well, so it's just as well your pictures were so good, or I'd have been confused - bikers are motorcyclists, usually clad in leather, on big machines. People who ride bicycles are cyclists.

Great shots! And you're right-the bikes leaning up against the saloon is funny.

Here's my Snapshot.

From that picture of the saloon I had a mental image of many drunken bicycle riders cycling down the road. :) They look like they're just fine in that last photo though.

At least the roads are flat. Although it looks like it was a hot day.

I have spent a lot of time in Amsterdam, so I'm used to seeing bikes everywhere. The brands are really cool.

Love the second photo.

We were in Paradise Valley on our last trip.

My Big Backyard (usually on Wednesdays, sometimes Thursdays)

Because I'm a nerd, I want to see how my backyard changes throughout the year. So! I'm going to take a few pictures of it eac...
