I have been waitin' fer some time for this thread to pop up, . .didn't know how to introduce our final trip into the POWDER RIVER BASIN. I think the basin should be renamed; they shoud call it the BISON BASIN and here is why?


Notice they have place a 30 MPH speed limit on all bison:


Notice how the bison are not one bit bothered by vehicular traffic:

Before we encountered the above bison, we travelled through the Petting Zoo just South of Gillette. I have often wondered where all of the antelope roam, where the deer and the antelope play. Well, . .It's right here in the Basin. The numbers alone were staggering.

With Gillette in the background and the highway in the foreground, they came to be petted,



and fed, and then they left us.


Now I'm ready to begin MODERN DAY MINING, THE POWDER RIVER BASIN, PART II

Great photos Allen. Glad to see Homer Simpson didn't get all the Bison after all.

Allen,
Those shots remind me of our many trips to Colorado and South Dakota during the 11 years that our sons were either at the AF Academy or stationed in Rapid City.

Did you and Beth have any Buffalo Burgers?

Maybe he's playing Tchaikovsky's, "the Nutcracker Suite"?

Yes Bruce,

I ordered a Tatonka (sp?) steak at a restaurant in Gillette before we left. The waitress couldn't find it on the menu until I reminded her of DANCING WITH WOLVES. It was sumptuous!

I think that's the first time that I've seen Alvin play his harmonica without his tee-shirt and hat!

I've been nurturing these guys for four years trying everything I could think of to kill them and look at the trick mother nature played on me!





and just when you thought it was safe to cut down the trees and build a parking lot!

I was on vacation in Florida the last six days and encountered some critters that I normally don't see in New Jersey.

This guy would hang out all day in the pond behind my girl friends Mothers house.


Some pelicans hanging out in Palm Beach.


We stayed with a friend of my girl friends who lives about 1/2 hour west of Palm Beach and these 3 pups live there too.


As you think, so will you be.

Yikes,
I hope you did not do any swimming in that pond and there was also a big fence between you and that critter.

John, no swimming and no fence either. I was about 7 or 8 feet away when I took the picture.

As you think, so will you be.
