Yeah you could really see the drought in IL and IN ...Southern WI too but, the Northern 1/2 of MN, MI and WI looked good...but then again that's mostly woods....the farmland below it looked a little brown.

I just got home last night from 20 days out trippin' on mostly back roads....stay tuned for more highlights throughout the week.

My grass is back in full grow mode ... just a few weeks ago it was all brown, dried out burnt and dusty.
i have mowed twice in the past week.

i'm sure crops arent as quick to recover.

Let's see, where were we?.....Oh yeah, Reddog* was leading me on a tour around the top of the mitten.



























...and we spent the night in, I mean at a kennel!

Good friends of Reddog*'s and accomplished sled dog racers!














Being named a World Champion is pretty impressive, is it not?

The Aussies are 'house dogs' She thought they may nip me but little did she know I'd already made my peace.














Spoiled, maybe...but was told they'll actually herd up a working dog if it gets loose!














BTW....Reddog*'s Dad makes those snow shoes!!

The next morning we packed up under the banner that some other friends of theirs made as a surprise for them when they returned to MI from AK this Spring.














It was a still, sunny and beautiful morning.

We were only over there on the grate to pass that slow truck though.














...booger check...
















...but as all things often seem to come to an end....first the bridge, now the pavement.

This stretch was pretty dusty so I hung back a ways and just chased the cloud.



























Do any of you recognize where we went next?




Bonus points for anybody that does!

Nope, both wrong....any more guesses?

Hint....pan North from the bridge and look for a triangle....then bonus points if you can tell me what it once was and what it is now.
