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.
