Peaceful Sunday 2/26/12

 This is how the Prairie looked yesterday..... now imagine how it looks today.... with over 5 inches of snow covering it. LOL

 Oil and gas are not the only forms of energy that are abundant in ND. We also have lots of wind! We also have lots of wind turbines.

 If you look closely, you will see the steps and door at the base of the front turbine. That gives you an idea of how huge these things are. They can be seen from miles away.

 North Dakota also is home to abandoned buildings, lots of abandoned buildings! 

 Ice fishing! yep, they do that here too. 

This gives you an idea of how far out on the ice they drive their trucks. A couple of weeks ago this lake had many trucks and shacks, we were expecting a storm so there were not as many on the ice yesterday.

 This area is where Lewis and Clark spent a good deal of time, so there are many things that honor them. 

I think the Indian Head road signs are pretty cool. 
The kids have been in and out all day. I swear it takes more time to bundle  and unbundle than play time out side. :-) Hunter has said several times today that this is the best winter ever!! (And yes, they had Snow cream for the first time and loved it!)
Thanks for stopping by!!
Until later~
