Danial, This summer, you would never know we are arid. The prairie and mountain sides are all very green. We have been getting a lot of much needed rain. Not much farming in my area (not enough reliable rains) but there is a lot of cattle ranching. Prairie grass, evergreen trees and weeds seem to enjoy the normally sparse rain fall.

What we lack in vegetation is made up with spectacular rock formations and pine forests.

Dan,  here are a few photos of where I live. I don't know how to post more than one photo at a time, so here they are one at a time.
You may know of this one. It's Mt. Rushmore, only 45min from my home. I do not know who made this image, found on line.

This one shows the immense size of many rock outcroppings here in the Black Hills. Yes, that is a highway you see, not a walking trail.   Larry

My wife on a walking trail between two very large rock outcroppings, with fallen boulders jammed in between them.  LG

WOW...!!!


WOW...!!!


Not an area where one could get bored easily... Certainly not if one likes modeling...!

I wouldn't like to live where those famous stone people looking into my yard all the time but the rest... must be fabulous... :2t:



Thank you for sharing, Larry.


Daniel
