Badlands

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!

Well the short work week of the 4th of July holiday weekend has come and gone and so has the three-day work week. I’m telling you I could get used to working only three days a week! I’m sure by the end of this week we’ll all be ready for the weekend and a couple of days off!

On our road trip out West a couple of weeks ago, we were able to spend a day at Badlands National Park in South Dakota. It’s a very fascinating place and if you’ve never been there for a visit, it’s well worth your time to spot in and check it out. Before you get to the park, the area around the park is a very open grassland and flat as it can be. When you get to the park the landscape turns into a mini Grand Canyon with some incredible formations. One of the things that I like is that you can start at one end of the park and drive through to the other end on the scenic drive. There are lots of places for you to pull out and take some photos and see the scenery.

I think we’ve got a couple of great photos to share this week from Badlands National Park. We were incredibly fortunate to see a number of Big Horn sheep and thanks to a long lens, Jan was able to get a really wonderful shot of one of these magnificent animals! They are so big and when you see them up close, you wouldn’t want to be in range of those horns because I’m sure they could do some serious damage. I was able to grab a nice shot of the landscape and also was fortunate to have some very nice clouds in my snap and that made the photo even better!

Here’s our two snaps from Badlands National Park.

Thank you as always for taking the time to check out or work and we hope that you have a great week to come!!!

Kev and Jan
