Independence Rock

Independence Rock

I know that usually folks post the names they find on Independence Rock.
I most likely will do that too in a few days.
However I just loved the wildlife around the rock just as much as the rock itself.

A pair of Pronghorn

A camouflaged bunny.
This rabbit ran right on up Independence Rock.

I am holding up another large granite rock.

Sergeant Floyd

Sergeant Floyd

I spent some time with my sis at the Sergeant Floyd Monument
in Sioux City, Iowa today.
I have been here many, many times while leading Lewis and Clark tours
but I have never been able to take photos for myself.
So here are some shots from today's visit.

The monument on the bluff.

Floyd's Plaque on the monument.

United States flag from the Lewis and Clark period.

Sis at the monument.

Yes she is really there.

I am calling Paul, telling him I'm at the Floyd monument.
He too has been there many times.

Of course I always have to connect what I do to Yellowstone in some way,
so here it is--the great engineer Hiram Chittenden, of Yellowstone fame
designed this monument.
Check out this web site:

I had fun here.

So here are the photos from the campus.

While I am traveling, my wonderful husband Paul Boruff is tending my garden.
The very first day I was on the road my sunflowers started blooming.
Thanks Paul!!

I really like to be around horses.
I don't have to be riding them.
I like riding.
But being with them suits me too.

This is 1964, pony rides at the park.

This is last year.

It is that time of year when the neighborhood peacocks like to visit our yard.
Although they have been wandering the area all winter they really like Spring in the yard.
This footage is from last year but they like to peck at my sky light anytime.
