Having Fun With A Kawasaki Mule



Driving a Kawasaki Mule through streams can be a very fun thing. I was soaked by the time I got to the other side.

More Moose From The Big Horn Mountains Of Wyoming




Working for Big Horn County Weed and Pest has it advantages.  Spraying weeds on the National Forest allows for some spectacular photo opportunities.  These guys were only a few yards away from my vehicle.  In the top photo, the moose was only about 30 yards away.  He did not mind that we were sitting there in the open talking.  In fact, while feeding, he came within about 20 yards.  Amazing.

The Bill Cody Museum



This tile mosaic of Wyoming is on the bottom floor of the natural history wing of the Bill Cody Museum. Just to the right of the Y on Cody is about where Burlington sits.  Pretty cool mosaic.

Tunnel Near The Eye Of The Needle

video
We had so much fun visiting the Mount Rushmore area.  There are several scenic highways in the area.  This video is part of the Needles highway.  The Needles name comes from the granite spires sticking up out of the mountain side.  A photo posted below is a piece of granite with a hole through one side.  That is called the "Eye of the Needle" and is within a few yards of the tunnel.
