Sorry i didn't see the question. Tallboy is correct, that pic was taken in a box canyon that ended at the Colorado border (looking towards) in an area known as the Arikaree Breaks it is in the NW corner of Kansas, in Cheyenne County, Nebraska borders on the north and Colorado to the west. That ride with Esteban was awesome, so much history in that tri corner area! And if you like rugged prairie it's some fantastic scenery.

Thanks so very much to each of you who posted pics. Although Virginia is full of beautiful scenery, I sure miss WY and NE. The pictures speak volumes .... less people, more wide open spaces! I can almost smell "home" now. Can't wait to get back.

Chickens.........

After seeing a few hogs on this page - figured we might want to see some Chickens....



Actually its that time of the year here on the plains - when the grouse and chickens are booming



The boys are looking at the girls!



And they don't like to share their girls - so they settle it like real men--

"They kick, bite and scratch each other"





I did ride the KLR out to the Lek to take these pictures, but failed to take a shot of the bike..

No pic of the KLR, we must assume the Suburban was involved!

The crab apple trees were blooming in Grand Forks.

I rode all the way from GF back to Sturgis, So Dak in one push and got a bit chilled at night, but it was beautiful as the moon rose over the plains.
Lotta good memories from that trip.

We load grain cars the same way...110 car shuttles. Takes about 10 hours to load them all.

I hope this summer is better than last summer. We only had 2 days where it go over 90 degrees. Hard to complain about cool weather but the rest of the summer was in the lower 60's.
