Took a trip yesterday...

11 posts in this topic

and logged 753 miles, and was gone from home for about 14 hours. I brought two of my daughters to Bible Camp in South Dakota. The camp is located on the Standing Rock Reservation, in the mini badlands.

This was my first attempt at editing out power lines, as well. A sample of the "mini badlands".

This is the area my girls will be riding horses every day.

I have wanted a picture of this house every time we have driven by it. Since I was alone on the way home, I could!

I was able to watch this rainbow for quite a few miles. This was taken near Waubay.

All great shots! I've spent a lot of time on the prairies of North Dakota, and those shots sure remind me of the big sky country. Thanks for sharing the cool work.

Hey Paul, which unit of the Teddy, north or south? They both have the same critters, but north has the better scenery.

Thank for sharing shots of your trip. I really like the old house pic cause you can sense that there is some stories that the house could and should share. I find it interesting that the wood stands and it looks like the fireplace is missing or at least the bricks.

It's clear to see why you had a keen interest in wanting to stop and photograph the old homestead, what a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

    • Never underestimate what a pussycat in her prime can bring down.      
    • 1.23.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye!   On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too!   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head.   This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report.   We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
    • I think the good news is we haven't look great lately but are still putting up wins, nothing wrong with that. Preds have been playing well lately and we were back to back so not going to get too concerned over that loss. Heck Kuemper even looked decent last night. CM Haula and Pommers have looked a little better lately. I am starting to hope Parise is still injured or something, he kind of looks like he is doing everything as usual but just can't get anything going. If this is him aging we are in trouble, lots of years left on that contract. Maybe just a bad season or fighting the puck I just don't know but something is off with him. The good news is we don't need a lot of out of him right now, just a little bit of elevated play and every now and then contributing on the score sheet. Granlund and Zucker have been just crazy good, even without Koivu last night they were our best line, always dangerous.
    • Over last week I left my generator in my fishouse and didn't shut off the propane.  My CO detector alarmed.   When I opened the door to clear it out I could smell a difference.  It didn't smell like either gas or propane - just different.   It only took a few minutes to clear the alarm but I'm not leaving the generator in there anymore and making sure I turn off the propane.  I usually do that but didn't get it done this last time.  The furnace was shut off like usual though.
    • I am looking at the HT Ice Blue and HT Ice Blue Pro rods.  Is there really a difference?  Which one is the better buy?
    • I've owned both the Nils 6 inch Trekker and the Kdrill 6 inch.   In my "opinion", I like the Nils over the Kdrill.   Nils has less torque when drilling, you get more holes per battery, it is faster then Kdrill,  the NIl's material is better to handle thick ice,  you could use it as a hand drill if you run out of battery, and if you get the Trekker model you can make it different lengths.   Kdrill's advantage is it is lighter and you can reopen holes since it is a chipper style blade. I don't open old holes so I sold my Kdrill. 
    • It's already happened....  
    • So what is the Leech Lake Blood Bath Days???
