Just back from a trip west. A large portion of Nebraska and South Dakota looks like this:
We combined a sightseeing expedition to the Black Hills with a family reunion in Valentine, Nebraska.
Absolutely gorgeous animals. Pretty sure we saw about 1,000 buffalo. And I did not need to zoom for this shot. They are very close to our vehicle.
Made a new friend at Wall Drug.
Food out of the cooler tastes great when you are taking a break from driving.
Visited a very nice quilt shop in Custer, South Dakota. It's fun to chat with the local folks. Bought a couple of cute panels there. They had a very nice selection.
Restaurant recommendation: Firehouse Brewing Co. in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Hope you all are enjoying your summer!
