Weekend Roundup - L

The Weekend Roundup

 This week's prompts: Starts with L, A Favorite, and Lonely.
Starts with L: This fine looking LONGHORN cow. Her calf was nearby, but sadly walked into the wooded area, successfully hiding from my camera.

A Favorite: While on our vacation, we got to spend some time with family. LUCKY us, grandson's band performed at a football game while we were there. He has the beautiful L, which stands for LINCOLN school, on his uniform.

Lonely: While in South Dakota, we stopped at a scenic outlook prior to entering The Badlands. I couldn't resist taking a picture of this one LONELY tree with the badlands in the distance.

Just Because: I found this LANTERN hanging in a covered wagon displayed in the Wyoming visitor's center.

And Finally: We took our dog son, Gus, with us on vacation. He needed to go potty, so we had to stop. I saw this strange statute of LINCOLN at the first rest stop in northern Colorado. At first I thought he was Elvis.

The Bird D-Pot

Looking for some help identifying this one. When I first saw it, I thought it was a chicken, but when I got closer I could tell it wasn't. I tried to get a better shot, but it kept moving away. 

These pictures were taken in south central Wyoming.

Critter Day

We can't seem to pass by The Badlands and not take the scenic drive. These Big Horn Sheep were the only critters we saw this trip through.

The rest of my critters were easy to photograph. All held their pose until I got the right shot. :)

This cougar hangs out in front of the Wyoming welcome center. I've taken lots of pictures of him during our trips there, but this one is my favorite.

I don't remember seeing these fawns there during previous trips, but they are near the welcome center entrance.

This longhorn is peeking out from above the The Longhorn Bar and Grill is in Sundance, Wyoming. This is where hubs and I enjoyed our first meal as a married couple. We were married at the Crook County Courthouse in Sundance. Seemed like an appropriate location. :)

This ranch entrance is along the road to Devil's Tower. A bear was taking a nap on the top. :)

Well, that's my critters for today. Hope to get out and find more for next week.

The Weekend Roundup - J

Today's assignment: Starts with J, Favorite, and Juice/Juicy.

Starts with J: JUXTAPOSED two pictures of this female painted bunting to compare front to back.

Favorite: This is Socks. He is one of my carrot loving friends. He is a male mule and therefore a JOHN.

Juice/Juicy: Limes are JUICY. these were particularly nice squeezed into a bottle of Corona. 

Just Because: Since this barn is in Oklahoma, I'm fairly certain the letters on the roof used to be OU, but they sure look like JU to me.

The Weekend Roundup - I

I'm going missing for a couple weeks or so. Off on a traveling adventure. I will try to visit yours when I can.

Today's assignment is: Starts with I, Favorite, and Inside.

Starts with I: How about an INDIAN. This photo was taken during a stomp demonstration at the Chickasaw Cultural Center.

Favorite: Besides taking pictures of critters, I also enjoy taking pictures of flowers. When I uploaded this flower to my computer, I discovered a surprise. A weird looking INSECT was enjoying a pollen snack.

Inside: Looking outside from INSIDE the barn.

Just Because: Caterpillars are the babies of INSECTS and therefore considered an INSECT, too.

And Finally: Peach ICE CREAM. Yum!

It's Dog Day

Gus doesn't get to have a free-for-all very often these days. We fear he might bump into a copperhead or a rattlesnake, and you know he would try to smell it. Wouldn't be good. DC went down to check the deer feeder (set up for photo hunting only) and gave Gus the treat of an early morning run.

Gus saw this Big Red Dog (the neighbor's dog) as he walked by on the road. Of course Gus barked and Big Red stopped to see who was disturbing his peaceful morning stroll. He dismissed Gus as a mere nuisance and continued on his way. The morning light sure made his coat a deep red.

Betty Davis eyes! Bella is one of the sweetest dogs ever...

This is Bella and Callie receiving a little puppy love.
