Traveling Out West

 

Cathey and I got back home late yesterday, tired but happy we made a trip of a lifetime for us. We traveled over 4000 miles saw some amazing scenery and didn’t wet a fly on the trip. Time was the factor that kept me out of the streams in the Black Hills and Yellowstone.

As some you know I am a western fan and finding out we could see the actual props used n Dances with Wolves was a plus!!!

The headquarters building of Fort Hayes build for the movie, in fact all the buildings in the Fort Hayes prop village were all built for the movie. The movie went way over budget, but won numerous Oscars at the academy awards in 1989.
 The Black Hills

So majestic is all I can say!!!!

French Creek in the Black Hills, Alan I thought of you when I snap this image.

Monument located atop Monument Hill at the Little Big Horn Battle Field. We spent the afternoon at this site, because of all the history.
 
Some of Custer’s Calvary using markers showing where they fell in battle—-I want go into all the information about the battle, but a lot that was seen in all the Custer movies were false.

Custer is not buried here; his remains are buried in West Point Cemetery in New York


 

Awesome rock mountains at the Buffalo Bill Dam going into Yellowstone

The Shoshone River flowing from the base of the dam

One of the many buffalo we spotted in the park, notice all the burn area in the background. The only negative for Yellowstone was the thousands of acres of burn timber in the park, in fact there was a fire burning in the park while we there.

Old Faithful

One of many water falls in the park

These are a few of the images from the places we visited, there are many more, but I want bore with the rest. I will close by saying it was a trip Cathey and I will never forget.
