As promised...Vacation Pics!!!

Well, it took me only a month to get off my butt and download all the pics, and resize some for the site. So...Here we go!

We first stopped in Wisconsin on our plight West. We stopped in the Dells where they had had all the terrible flooding. This was the lake that was all over the news that the levy had broke and the water rushed out so quickly it took everything in it's path. Including the ground that half of this house was sitting on...

As you can see in the 2nd pic, it is not a lake anymore. I guess they are already in full swing and things will be back to normal by next fall...

The third picture is just some random damage done by the flooding. The power of Mother Nature is rather remarkable and scary...

We then traveled straight through Minnesota and stopped in South Dakota at the Badlands. What an amazing site that was!!! It was like being on another planet. We took a lot of pictures there! Here is just a few...

While in the Badlands we saw three different species of animals that are native to that area, but was the first time we had seen any of these in the wild...

There were Prairie Dogs, Pronghorns, and Bison..

That's all I can do for the moment....Wife is making lunch! I shall return with more soon! Enjoy. I know pictures can't even begin to really show what the pure beauty is out there, but at least it gives people an idea.

Those pictures are great, Brandt. Brings back memories. I never saw a herd of pronghorn though. They always seemed to be grazing, one or two at a time, in and amongst the cattle.

As promised...Vacation Pics Part Two!!!

After spending the one afternoon at the Badlands we stayed over night and the next morning set out to see Mt. Rushmore. That was something that I didn't think I would be so excited to see, but when your standing right below the monument, it's hard not to be awe struck!

Next we headed off to Crazy Horse. Obviously there isn't much done with the monument yet, but when it does get done, it is going to be awesome. Here is a picture of what it looks like now, and there is a sculpture that shows what it will look like when completed...Whenever that may be!

We were then on our way to Wyoming to visit Yellow Stone. That night while driving, Brenda got some absolutely amazing pictures of the sunsetting in the west...
