got a very late start to the day. Kim was not feeling well at all.. she may have been overserved last night... anyway, abou tmid-afternoon we headed back to the Spur Creek Saloon, about 35 miles north of Sturgis near Newell, SD. Robert and Becky, the owners, had offered to let us go for a horse back ride... here we are getting our horses saddled up and ready.

I'm taking a pic of trever while he's taking a pic of me on the horses out in the middle of nowhere!

we rode out to the farthest cattle shelter we could find... Robert has these spotted all across his property. Gives the animals a place to escape the wind

nothing for miles and miles

I guess we ran the horses pretty hard.... when we returned, Trevers horse had sweat up a nice pile of goo

while we were out horseback riding, one of their longhorn cattle delivered a calf. we drove out to look at it when we returned. still has the umbilical cord attached...!

looking across the parking lot to the West.. wondering if the rain will hit us, or pass us to the south... the land is so flat, these storms are probably 50 miles away

20130807_210848

on the way back to Sturgis... a gorgeous evening...

leaving the bar - one storm has passed, and another is on the way. hopefully we can slip back to town right in the middle of them...
