Colorado, then Home

On the return trip we stopped in Colorado to visit Belinda's parents and we saw the the fall colors in Colorado. The aspens were resplendent. We are home now and want to thank everyone who followed the blog; your comments helped us keeping going day by day. We really felt we were sharing our journey with others.

The Black Hills of South Dakota

On the way to the trailhead for Harney Peak, we passed over the Needles Hwy. The picture above is of the 'Eye of the Needle'. After a good hike we came to Harney Peak, highest point between the Pyrenees and the Rockies. At the top is the fire lookout built by the CCC. It is really like a little castle.

On our way out of Custer State Park we saw a herd of buffalo. This cow caught our attention as she is some what askew.
