This is my love letter to Wyoming. The land of wild winds and rattlesnakes, snow covered peaks and dusty desert roads, and untouched rocks that sprout like islands from a sea of wild sagebrush. I spent two months over the summer working at the Magee Homestead in Saratoga, Wyoming, and these are my realizations about life after working at a luxury ranch.
This mini series on the blog is called Florida Spotlight, and it'll highlight amazing places in Florida. Simple enough, right? Last weekend my hometown friends drove up to Tallahassee to celebrate my birthday with me.
