I just happened on an All Breeds Horse Show at the Fairgrounds during the classes for English tack.

Harney Peak, Black Hills of South Dakota
elevation 7,242 ft above sea level
There is no summit east of the Rocky Mountains in the United States that has higher elevation. The stone fire tower just visible in the top photo was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
Known as Hinhan Kaga Paha to the native Lakota people, it is a sacred site and place of vision quests.

It was Pronghorn Day in Custer State Park 7/13/13! Big ones, little ones, curious ones, hungry ones and disdainful ones! The buck just stood like a statue for several moments, like we were supposed to pay homage and admire his elegance.
While I was taking pictures of the doe and the fawns, I was using a road sign as a kind of monopod for the camera with the telephoto. Apparently, this youthful mountain bluebird thought I was part of the sign. He landed, chirruped for a few minutes, looked down, realized I was not road sign, screeched in alarm and fled. I got just one shot of him just as he discovered I was there.

Today, this beautiful baby, who is our youngest daughter, turns 21. She has become a beautiful young woman, with a giving heart, an artistic soul, and a goofy sense of humor. Love you, Surprise of the Century!

Ok, they nailed quesadilla and artichoke, iffy on the chix, but epic fail on the spinnch! I drove around the block to see if I saw what I thought I did. I saw it. Even better, the McD's up the street has a blueberry-pomegrante smoothie to drink with your spinnch quesadilla! Score 2.
