Heavy Dew?

How someone managed to get down next to these falls on the grounds of the Pipestone National Monument in Minnesota is beyond me. Why they would even bother just to place a Mt. Dew bottle there is even more beyond me. Tourists!

Hangin' On

DevilsTower - Locust
Walking the path around Devils Tower in Wyoming I buzzing, flying something went by me and landed on a branch. It took a few moments to find it- but there it was. A locust.

Kayaks on Back Bay Slough


I have always liked the pictures that show a canoe or kayak along with the water they are traveling over and the scenery they are floating through. So I took this one in the Apostle Islands a couple years ago.

Harney Peak and Sylvan Lake, SD

Harney Peak is the place where Black Elk was taken in his vision. It's in the Black Hills of western South Dakota and is a sacred place. Sylvan Lake in the foreground gives a great contrast and color.

The Badlands


There is not much to say to a picture like this- the Badlands of Suth Dakota. Three weeks ago today my wife and I started a trip out to the Black Hills and you can't miss the Badlands on your way. [Starting later today at my regular blog I will be recounting the trip on a daily basis along with more picture links.]

On The Susquehanna

Susquehanna Sunset

Here they are, together again. Sunset and water. I don't know what is so magical about it for me, but I am drawn to it. This is the Susquehanna River at Lock Haven, PA.
