Mini Vacation

I haven't posted anything for a long time.  Seems like I lead out with that line almost every time I post something new.  I should keep up on this blog a little more.

I thought I'd share our mini vacation with everyone.  A couple of weekends ago we went for a drive in the neighborhood.  I really DO live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet.  We ended up taking the girls to Bear Country.  

Personally, I don't care if I ever go to Bear Country again.  Their prices are pretty danged high and all for a drive through a little "park" with animals roaming around.  Some of the animals are hard or impossible to see in the wild, but some are EVERYWHERE around here.  But, the girls got a huge kick out of it.

 I have to admit, they have some pretty cool sculptures or whatever you'd call this.  This bear is HUGE!

This bear must have had a really bad itch.

This was one of the biggest bears on the place.  It wasn't a real hot day, but it was hot enough that most of the bears were lounging around.

After Bear Country we went for a drive down through the Needles Highway and Custer State Park. 

I made the hubby drive down the middle of the road.  I really didn't feel like reaching out and touching this guy.  He's not really all that big, but I'm sure he can still put a hole in the side of the car.

 I absolutely love the little creeks that run through and around everything.

So, there you have a small sampling of our mini vacation.  But, hold on... We have more.  Haha.
It really is amazing the stuff you see around here.
This camper was in the Wal-Mart parking lot the next day.


  1. Are you trying to make my Sunday Safaris look tame in comparison.


    1. Absolutely not! Your Sunday Safaris are awesome. Plus, you get out a lot more than I do.


Thank you for your comments.
