Road Trippin' and New Friends
Our snow is melted now
(except for the big piles in the shade
of the tree groves)
Temperatures have been creeping upward slowly.
It's shaping up to be a nice spring here finally!
On our visit to West River (The Black Hills)
we saw buds on the aspen trees
and even tulip bulbs coming out of the ground.
Signs of spring all around...
and such a welcome sight to see!
Prairie dogs were out and about enjoying spring too...
I wonder if they've called their cousin,
the ground hog, and told him
what a fool he was this year!??
Pronghorns out grazing....
On our tour through Custer State Park
it seemed that pretty much all of the wildlife
came out to give us a pretty nice show.
Although everybody stayed busy with their
noses to the ground grazing...
The most friendly were
they would hang out in the middle of
the road (like a gang of banditos)
Not willing to let us pass
without a little socializing!
"Hey, Roll down this window
I want to know where you're from!"
After a lengthy conversation,
we knew everything about each other...
history, kid's names, grandma's names,
and what we all plan to do if we retire!
I told them about our blog and they were
happy to pose for several pictures to share!
Those friendly burros just
wouldn't let us go!
We finally had to make up
some excuse about
meeting someone soon
and had to run.
We said our good byes and down
the road we went!
I hope you all will get to the park some day soon!
Stop and visit with the burrows, please!
They seem so lonesome (or just nosy)!
Have a wonderful weekend,
take a little road trip and enjoy the scenery!
Jeesh, I almost forgot It's Farm Friend Friday
and Farm Girl Friday!
I'm adding a link to Verde Farm
and Dandelion house so you
can easily click over there and
catch up with some fun farmers who blog.
