Flicker

This little fellow perched himself on a branch of the snag where so many birds hang out. But he had an added bonus. I had the sprinkler running and every 30 seconds or so he got a little shower… which he seemed to enjoy.flicker_1010882

Mt. Si Morning

With the summer heat finally dissipating, it was a cool and gorgeous morning. Here’s a shot from the 5th fairway at the Mt. Si Golf Course.

Dickinson to Billings

Today was a leisurely 318-mile drive from Dickinson, ND to Billings, MT.  We arrived early enough to stop by Zoo Montana which turned out to be a disappointment. There were few animals although the two bears were entertaining.

TRNP – Day Two

We spent all morning and part of the afternoon in the South section of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The terrain was a bit more interesting than the North section and we say countless bison –some very up-close–, wild horses, and prairie dogs.

Made it! North Dakota

We arrived in Medora in early afternoon, with enough time for a short visit stop the Theodore Roosevelt National Park South Unit Visitor Center to get our bearings.  In addition to countless prairie dogs, we also saw some lovely wild horses.

Horses in Pasture

I was driving to Snoqualmie Falls to take a few pictures when I noticed the two horses in the pasture in front of Mt. Si. We often see these critters on our way to the gym each morning and it was nice to get a good photo of them.mt_si_w_horses_0209
