Every one has a dream…Many years ago Thurber wrote about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. As a follow-up to this short story, a movie was made with Danny Kaye, who some of you might remember. After seeing that movie and reading the short story again I bring my thoughts to Yellowstone Country and Yellowstone National Park. As Mitty had a number of special day dreams a visit to Yellowstone is a favorite dream of many. Many, indeed, live out their dream in the wild…so was this a dream of Walter Mitty. Let’s visit Walter Mitty as he shares this dream...click here .
You will see that even Yellowstone is a special favorite of the Mitty family.
If you are so inclined…drop me a note and I will send you a list that I have personally compiled about people, places and things to see and do here in Yellowstone Country. In fact do it now. Leave a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Celebrating Photography during the Month of March!
Capturing a moment through the eye of the camera, does it not amaze you at what you see. My feelings transmit such excitement. Capturing moments with the camera lens opens up a world I might have otherwise missed.
Never knew I would be so excited about having a friend named Nikon. It feels so good. Since I have gained such a friendship the world has opened up and expanded into areas I would never have traveled to. Even though I know the world expands as we seek new paths along our life’s journey, it still amazes me on what I find.
Today, as I started researching for a Brook N’ Dell Project and the Photography Room at the Art Center I found myself finding so many opportunities for photographers…Even novice amateur photographers like myself. This research objective is to provide an on-going resource guide to many monthly and yearly photography contests.
Knowing that there are so many resources out there in the world of photography we invite all to join us in this endeavor. If you know of contests please send a message by using the comment section below or if you wish send a private message to email@example.com.
We thank you for visiting Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village. Our mission is to support all in living an exciting purposeful life and capturing the moment!
If you are an amateur or professional photographer and visit Yellowstone National Park as well as Glacier National Park, please contact me as we are working on a project which might interest you.

Have you ever been dog sledding? I now can say I have ….It has been snowing in the mountains around us. We had a dusting of snow showers during the night providing Paradise Valley a mesmerizing feeling. One of the main activities is dog sledding in Paradise Valley along Mill Creek in the Absaroka Mountain Range. I have just posted this photo which my guide, Britt, took just before we took off on our adventure. Will have more photos of the trip by the end of today, February 14, 2012. Happy Valentine’s Day!
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into the trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will dop off like autumn leaves.” John Muir on Our National Parks
