Scouting Run

Pictures from a recent excursion to scout out rock hunting areas.


















The pastures were well guarded by the bovine persuasion.


















What wasn't cow guarded was overseen by hay-like sentinels.


















Good luck trying to sneak around with all those hay bales watching.


















Igneous rock in the foreground, coal mine in the background.



















Banded rock formation I need to do more research on.


















Bright spot by the side of the road.
















More interesting banded rock formations.



















Formations rising from the plains.


















With virtually no trees to obscure the panoramic views...


















...unfortunately allows wildfires to grab hold and run.

Is that a new breed of cow?

Looks like a "stretch" cow...kinda like a stretch limo.

Interesting,your wildlife.

The Corgi fan club wants to know....
where are the Corgis?

Personally,I enjoy the corgi-less scenic vistas.......

Same old stretch cow. We grow them long out here.

The Corgis are vacationing in the south of (France). They'll return when they are less tired of the paparazzi.

i love living at the country . it's the best place!

Constance Brewer said...

Yep, the rural landscape is the best. :)

Yeah, that land IS devoid of trees. But the wind should have some fun gaining speed to hit some better populated places further south. ;)

What do the hay bales do if they see you?

I'll be interested to hear more about the banded rocks if you find out about them.

Gabriele, believe me, the wind can pick up speed here with or without trees. It can get mighty cold in the winter with the 'breeze'.

Carla - the hay bales form circles and other interesting shapes. and talk behind your back. Very disturbing.

Have another geology book on order that should answer my banded rock questions. :)
