Home on the Range

Some of these are a bit fuzzy but capturing them at 75mph I can't really complain.

One thing I do love is the sight of rain off in the distance.

While driving from Sioux Falls to Rapid City along I90 on Sunday we came across this beautiful sight!

Obviously I don't know my animals very well as at first I thought it was a herd of young deer. Although, they didn't look exactly like most of the deer I have seen.  I also found it odd that there was no sign of a buck or an older doe. 

So when I got home and brought the image up on my computer and could zoom in to get a closer look, I realized right away that this was no herd of deer. While the body shape was similar, the neck and head had more of a horse shape, and they didn't appear to have tails. So my search began. I soon learned these are young female Pronghorns

Talk about a beautiful animal. Here is a look at an adult male.

And that was Sunday in my city state.

Spring Storms

One thing you can count on living in South Dakota is early spring snow storms. They will happen. It may be a light dusting of snow and then again it may be a blizzard, or anywhere in between. But you will have snow in spring!

Wednesday was no exception, the snow fell thick and heavy in Rapid City for most of the morning. By mid afternoon everything was covered with a nice five and a half inches of snow.
 While this made for some messy roads it was sure pretty.
