Just one of the interior hallways in Wall Drug. The store is huge, appears to have maybe been several separate stores at one time.

  1. As usual, your photography is wonderful! I love the lightning photo. I do hope you have a clear night for the Milky Way photos. I have visited Wall Drigs as well. I bought some gold there. Did you see the building with the corn all over it? Be sure to send photos of Alaska! Wow. I am so happy you are back on the road again. Are you still using your casita?
    love,
    gail

    • Thanks for your kind words, Gail. Yes, I’m using the Casita, itis what makes all the traveling possible and fun. Heading out tomorrow morning to Montana.

  2. Jean, loved the baby bighorns. What a treat to see them play and sleep! Sorry that the weather was bad for the night photos but the clouds added drama to your scenics.
    Glad that all is well. Good beginning for your adventure!

    • Thanks, Lynne. The baby big horns are a treat to see so I was so pleased to be able to capture them so well. I loo out the trailer window to the east and it is cloudless, but to the west….looks like more rain, but I won’t give up on the night photography yet. I agree having clouds in the sky does enhance the daytime images and the storm.

  3. I just love your pics of the bighorn lambs. They’re so cute and playful. Happy trails on your journey to Alaska!

  4. Peggy and I will be there in September, looks beautiful and I hope we see all those sheep too. We have Wall Drugs on our list to see.
