A few days ago, we got back from a trip out west.  The main reason for the trip was to visit Mr. M's Dad, sister, and brother-in-law in Colorado.  We saw them last year at Mr. M's Mother's memorial service, but it was nice to see them again this year. 

Our younger son's visit there overlapped ours by about a day, so it was nice seeing him also.  He is moving back to our area from Las Vegas this summer, so he brought along a car load of his things for us to bring back with us. 

On our way home, we visited the Black Hills.  We've been there a few times before, but it's always nice to go through such a beautiful area.

 There's a tree growing right on the top of this rock formation.

This is a view that we missed the other times we were here.  It's the side of Mount Rushmore.

Here's a close-up of that same view, showing the side of George Washington's head.  It was a surprise to be able to see it from this vantage point.

Below are a couple of interesting cloud formations that we saw as we were traveling across South Dakota.  We had such great weather the whole time we were on the trip.

This one was several long strings of clouds, which I thought was quite unusual.  Maybe not, but I had never seen any like this before.

And a cute little duckling near a pond at Al's Oasis.  There was a second one but it wouldn't stand still long enough for me to get a picture.

It was a good trip, but it's always nice to get back home again.

The garden is entirely planted and mulched.  Now we wait for fresh veggies, although we have been eating lots of asparagus the past week or two.  So good!
