A friend of a friend let a group of us use her cabin for a long weekend away. Being away from the city sounds and having cell (or internet!) service was refreshing.
Another autumn in the books, this one was of the craziest and best weeks to be up north.
Last fall was busy busy and somewhere in there I moved my website and didn’t add the piling up posts…here is one sunset during an otherwise very rainy week up north.
Happy New Year! I probably should have posted these way before now, but …. I forgot about them. Driving past this scene made me think about the old American dream, with a little house and a picket fence. And wide open space to roam and be free.
On our way to a wedding, we took the slightly longer route driving through the Badlands. They will never look like this again! Although it had snowed all morning, the skies cleared up just before we got to the Badlands! All the vibrant colors made this sun-starved Minnesota girl so happy.
When you’re in Spearfish for 1.5 days, what should you do? Drive across the border into Wyoming to see Devil’s Tower, of course! Although, I would suggest going on a nice day clear of snow storms. And it would also be helpful to not go just hours before the wedding you are there to attend. And when you get to the scenic pull off where the signs say you can see Devil’s Tower from, right before the best little place with buffalo burgers? Look the other way. Devil’s Tower is behind you. But you won’t see it is snow is falling. No matter if it’s snowing or not…Devil’s Tower is a sight to see! What do you say when you run into a cow in a blizzard?
