While in Wyoming we walked around Devil's tower. It is quite impressive. Even though I have walked around it 2 times now, I feel like the best view is from afar. I just stare at it and try and imagine how it looked like with a mountain around it.
Oh much better!! :-)
Golden eagle... the one we actually saw. Looked at it for minutes and then it flew away!
This is what golden eagles look like.
One of the most memorable moments was when we were on the 6 hour back roads trip in the black hills forest. Many many many cows on the road. Then we came upon a group of cows on the road again. As we weeded are way through them carefully, we came upon a mom that was nursing her calf in the middle of the road. Mom walked slowly away as the calf insisted on trying to nurse. Very cute.
Oh just a cow note. While driving into a group of cows, "teenage" cows will scamper away every time. Adult cows will stand and stare. "20 year olds" move away slowly. Just an FYI!! K~
