Not So Wordless Wednesday (Hot Springs, SD)

I'm a little behind on posting.  I thought I would get you caught up by posting photos from last week....
The Burro Gang Strikes Again!
And again.....always looking for the mother lode of perfect apples.  We drove through Custer State Park last week.  Our biggest hope was to see the wild burros.  There was quite a large group of them and people were outside their cars taking photos and feeding them.  The burros were very accommodating.

"Say Cheese!"....
 "Come on lady!  I said cheese!  Where's my carrot?"
There were so many cute little ones.  I wonder how the cats would feel if I adopted one?  Did I hear a hiss?
 Lucky for the cats, there is no room.  I'll just have to go back to visit them again.
 I hear they love carrots too....
New Site - New Job
We said good-bye to the Head Ranger on Saturday.  She and her husband are going to travel part-time in their trailer with three cats and a dog.  I'm sorry to see her go.  I think we would have had a great time together.  Safe Travels!  Her replacement will be coming in later this week.  In the meantime, we will work with the two younger rangers.

The old camp host decided to leave a day early so we were able to move to full hook-ups on Sunday.  We spent part of Sunday and Monday working with two rangers.  With the campground was full during the weekend, we have a very good idea of what will be expected from us.  We probably won't have a problem finding things to do for our 20 hours per week.
Our new site
Still no shade.  Since it isn't as windy here, we can keep our small awning out.  The afternoons have been getting a little warm, but it cools off in the evenings.  I certainly like our views a lot more than the last place.  Our cats certainly like our new home.  They are begging to go outside two and three times a day.  I can't blame them.  It's nice outside!
One more photo of Cold Brook Lake taken from the dam side.  It is a small lake, but very clear and a nice shade of blue.

I'm getting back into my sewing.  I'll try to post some photos of my latest projects soon.
Happy Quilting!


  1. Fantastic photos, as always, Sandy! I love the view of your new site!

  2. Gorgeous spot!! What adorable little burros!! I've seen miniature cattle and always thought it would be great if I could get a couple. Those things are just adorable!

  3. I'm glad things are working out. What percentage of RV's have pets? No wonder they could identify with you.

  4. Those burros are so cute!

    And yay for a site with hook-ups! The lake is beautiful. What's the object in the middle of it? Something to climb?

    1. They are! The tower is a drainage system to keep the lake from over flowing. No climbing allowed. Of course, that doesn't stop people from doing it.

  5. I love the view of the lake! And the burros are DO cute!

  6. Oh my gosh! I didn't realize at first where you were. I thought they were yours. I smile! We went to CSP to see the herd. We only say 2! I can't belive you saw so many.
    I love mini donkeys. We had 2. They live with friends now. I really miss them. Your post brought a smile to my face.
    Thank you. And LOL I came by from your comment on another post. I am a quilter your name brought me over!

  7. Hi thanks for coming over and seeing my fences!

  8. Love the burros. Reminds me of the time in Ireland a donkey bit my daughter's hand. We were petting it, and she was letting it "nibble" her -- well, it nibbled all right! She learned a good lesson that day.


Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment. I enjoy hearing from you.
