Everyone except ourselves were leaving today, so this morning’s session was kept short. We traveled to the Ridgeline Trail that required a hike up to the top of a rocky hill. The wind was fierce. We finished and returned to the Cowboy Café for breakfast and said our goodbyes to the Kreisberg family. A little later, we returned to the park for some private shooting time and photographed a coyote from a distance. We got some great wild horse pictures with the horses in motion and a picture of a magnificent male buffalo that fit the image most of us have of the animal. We got back to the campground, had dinner, and dragged our sleep-deprived selves to bed early. Another great day in Theodore Roosevelt National Park!
We are out there before the sun comes up.
The North Dakota badlands are spectacular in the early morning.
We were so fortunate to be in the park when the trees were turning. It was beautiful!
A coyote on the hillside. Not a great shot, but it still tells the story!!
This guy was very docile. We were able to get some close ups. He was a beauty!!
The horses were amazing!
It was sad to say good-bye to Theodore Roosevelt National Park and our campground, The Red Trail Campground. Tomorrow we will head down to Spearfish, SD and take the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway!
