Wyoming has an arid climate with areas of desert – it’s not all mountains and geysers as is often promoted. As Michaela and I were driving through one of the deserts between Sheridan and Greybull, we happened upon the oasis of Shell Falls. The water tumbles onto 2.9 billion-year-old Pre-Cambrian rocks – a period way before my arrival on the planet! This perspective of time makes me feel very small in the vast universe, but at the same time significant and grateful to be included.
This rock formation on a neighboring cliff (image below) reminded us of a famous female figure in art history from many millennia ago. Any guesses who?
