Trip to North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota
June 2001 - Page Two

The North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park is a true treasure - and there are seldom very many people there!  That makes it a wonderful place to hike and enjoy solitude.

This photo is from Sperati Point, as are these:

The next stop on the trip was the Little Bighorn National Battlefield.

The pictures below reflect both "Last Stand Hill" and the Reno-Benteen area.

Sheridan, Wyoming, was expecting snow.  Fortunately, it only showed up in the higher elevations!

One of my favorite niche's of history is the Bozeman Trail.  Fort Phil Kearney is one of three forts built along that route.

At the site that saw the Wagonbox Fight, I concentrated on taking flower pictures and getting to know my digital camera.  Some turned out, some didn't.  Here are the ones that did!

The iris was actually photographed in the Black Hills, along the shores of Sylvan Lake.  But I've combined all of my flower photos in this one section.

Near Fort Phil Kearney was a ranch that had a wonderful assortment of animals, including llamas and miniature burros.  

I stopped and took a few pictures. I also took some pictures of horses for my sister.

I had big plans for hikes in Custer State Park in the southern Black Hills.  But what happened as I was about to start a 3-mile hike?  A hail and slush storm, of course!

But it wasn't a total wash, since I do love storms and taking pictures of them!
