Wyoming Ranchland - Sheila and I left for a loop trip starting in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The loop will take us to Badlands NM, Mt. Rushmore, Devils Tower NM, Yellowstone NP (where we'll be meeting friends Ellen and Donald), Grand Tetons NP, then down into Utah (parts unknown) and eventually meeting up with daughter Linda and husband Robb in Grand Junction. The image below is quite representative of much of eastern Wyoming. The rolling hills are occasionally cut by small streams, a couple larger rivers and large numbers of shallow dry washes. This windmill was taken on Wyoming Highway 16 on the way towards the South Dakota town of Custer, where we plan to spend a few days. As we headed east, large black clouds with rain and hail greeted us and it's been a little wet all the way to camp. This was taken just prior to heading into the main squall.
