We've been driving around a lot, ranging farther from our home base and hitting some scenic drives we missed on earlier trips. Yesterday we drove west to Wyoming and back up through Custer State Park on Iron Mountain Road, famous for its pigtail turns where the road goes under itself in a 360 degree loop.
Here we're driving out of a tunnel into the top of the pigtail.
And here we're looking up to where we just were and the road loops under itself.
No buffaloes this time, but we did catch the back ends of some gentleman longhorn sheep.
I think my favorite place is the west side of the Black Hills, as they transition into the flat dry lands of southeastern Wyoming. Lush green, grassy valleys with little groves of quaking aspen.
Back "home," our valley has just been hayed, as have many in this area.
Tonight we're going into Spearfish for a huge Corvette rally. Who knew?
