This was a perfect fall day with cool temps and sunshine. A good day to be outdooors checking cattle and taking a few photos. The snow we had a few days ago is long gone, leaving us with some good subsoil moisture and settling the dust! These are hoo-doo or table rocks in the photo above.
The red and white dome looking formations are called knobs. The white ones are made of gumbo clay and the red sprinkled on others is scoria rock. The brown flowerheads are purple coneflowers that had bloomed in late June thru July. The grayish blue colored plants are sagebrush. That is one of my favorite smells, handsdown!
Boyd takes his job very seriously, even when he is in the truck.
Some of this year's steer calves. They just keep growing!
Then again, that is what they are supposed to do! Right?
I love fall in the North Daktota badlands!
