Photo was taken at Scoria Point Overlook. Which has changed since I took the photo (the sandstone rock in the photo is no longer there because the NPS has built a new sandstone wall there). Go there yourself people!

Red Oak House Spring Note for today
While outside birding and filling feeders, I looked at the ground and spotted green, two native plants in our yard that has survived the winter. Yucca in a dry place and Prairie Smoke from the badlands near the back patio.

Spring Road Trip to Southwestern North Dakota Counties and the Little Missouri National Grasslands: a Visual Essay
in no particular order
My very first in-person shopping at Roxie's Smoke Shack. Jim is a celebrity there. We had some laughs and bought some stuff. Then I walked across Highway 12 to mail a Marmarth postcard to my brother with a 48 cent stamp.

A Grief Journey Part 4
Sitting with my mom this past winter and showing her via Google Streetview the paved streets in the small southwest North Dakota towns she had not been to in many years. Paved streets and sidewalks.

I navigated to show the places she knew well and we agreed "wonders never cease."
