Badlands, Wyoming, Storms, Boysen Reservoir

The Badlands of South Dakota at sunrise. This was taken from the campground.

Jumping a couple days ahead, skipping the Black Hills area, where for some reason I didn't take a single picture, this is central Wyoming, approaching Casper.

The suburbs of Casper.

We've left Casper now, and are headed west towards the Tetons, but via a northward detour to the hot mineral springs at Thermopolis.
This is downtown Hiland.

We passed through a series of isolated downpours on the way to Thermopolis. I like the plains because the sky is paramount.

This is Boysen Reservoir, at the opening of the Wind River Canyon, up which is Thermopolis. This canyon turned out to be a real highlight of our trip. Next post.

The first Badlands photo is great. Wish I were there to see it for real. Remember playing Frisbee in the area way back in Summer 1979? Looking forward to the next photos.

Are you two still camping out in the mountains? Enjoying the primitive life? Send some smoke signals this way and let us blog writers know what you are up to? Specifically show some more of your photographic and artistic work?

These photos are great. The photos of Iowa are probably too emotionally charged for me. Thanks for sharing these, Mark.
