That sounds about right I was definitely on I70.

Once I stopped to take the picture (same idea Old vs New) the cows started coming toward the fence just to say hello. I guess they don't have too many visitors! Friendly cows in Kansas!!

It's part of a big, random sculpture garden on a farm in (I think) east central South Dakota - on Hwy 212, I think.

I love the storms, In Oregon we have rain and lots of it but it just rains. The thing I love about plains storms is the power and force they have. The wind, lightning, and hail. Those kind of storms get your attention.

Sandhills lakes are the best. Thanks for the reminder, Jeff.
