Your Wyoming?

paisley rekdal

LISTEN to Rose Marie London describe her Wyoming.

LISTEN to Mark Jenkins describe his Wyoming.

READ about Paisley's Wyoming in her poem "Ode."

Paisley, Rose Marie and Mark live in the same part of Wyoming but see the wilderness that engulfs them there in fundamentally different ways. Mark Jenkins is happiest outdoors whether he's sleeping under the stars or scaling the world's most challenging peaks. Rose Marie London prefers to see nature from her Adirondak chair. Paisley is less extreme and less decided about her relationship to the outdoors of Wyoming.
