The journey begins- O'hare Airport, Chicago
Just about enough light to see Garden of the Gods park
A few desert primroses
Nice detail of those primroses
Some more red flowers
Wide view of flowers
Barbed wire fences- they are everywhere! Even in the middle of nowhere
Dust bowl trying to revive
Pastel orange flowers.
Western Kingbird, sleek grey with nice yellow belly
Prairie dog babies on top of mound.
The high plains
A giant grasshopper- locust.
Neat little horny toad- horned lizard
Aliens have landed
A 'horny' horned lizard? These two were together
Ain't she purty?
Turning to run
About to run
A big clump of pastel orange flowers.
Some sort of lizard
Checking out the danger
Long billed curlew- neat birds with a very mournful call
A pile of flowers.
Old fashioned windmill.
Mark birding in the wind.
Small blue flowers.
Some cows don't make it.
Lester's place. Not a woman in sight and small wonder
Calves and the double butte.
Big monster snake
Snake again. A pit viper with no rattle.
Little art studio in the middle of the high desert.
Nice big border collie farm dog who greeted us.
Hole which I climbed up to.
Looking down through the hole.
Don't want to fall!
That's why I stopped.
