    That is on the west side of Clark, SD. The owner's name is Ken Bell, and why he has that collection is beyond my understanding, but I've taken photos of it on each of several trips through the area.

    Off current topic but going back two pages. Life in the NE. plains
    in the winter. These were from the first week of Jan. west of
    Lincoln. Rumor had it that further in central NE. there was a two story
    drift blocking the rail.

    Thank you--- but no I did not make this. This is a Happy Trails Product. It's been just the perfect top box, small enough to through your leg over, and big enough for the junk I put in there.

    I live in Grande Prairie which is RIGHT on the edge of the plains, 5 minutes out of town you cross the Wapity river and are into the rolling foothills. towards Grande Cache. Many of you who head to Alaska MAY pass through GP. Dawson Creek is not far. Here are a few from around my area:

    Most of my riding is along the rivers on the edge before the foothills.

    The long banks of the Wapity river.

    This is getting close to the edge again, Redwillow river. 60KM west of Grande Prairie:

    Those of you from Montana, this is sweetgrass hills, at sweet grass Montana. INCREDIBLY cool place! hiked to the top:

    Great Photographs. I plan on passing your way this June on my way to Wood Buffalo National Park.

    After looking at these photos, I'm so looking forward to this trip.

    Thank You
