As sunrise neared, it became quite evident this would be a very colorful sunrise, so I quickly dressed and headed outside. Here is what […]

Today’s post features a couple of sunset images as the sun dropped towards the western horizon, over the Badlands NP of South Dakota.  I have never seen a “bad” sunset here … ok, if it is really cloudy it might not be good sunset material.  But typically, I can always count on some really nice […]

Down From the High Country

Today’s post comes from my recent trip to the Badlands National Park (South Dakota). I was hoping to see some Bighorn Sheep rams, but I wasn’t sure if it was too early for them in the “lower country”. The rams live as a group of rams, away from the ewes and lambs … that is, […]
