There’s a Snake in the Grass!

The family of @ohiocapitalblog spent two weeks out West, tent camping in South Dakota, Wyoming and North Dakota.

Here are some pics from our first stop, in the Badlands in South Dakota. We spent two nights in the national park campground there, including one evening of thunderstorms:

Here’s a short clip of the rattlesnake I nearly stepped on during one hike, plus a nice shot of the double rainbow we saw after the storm and a loud prairie dog:

Here are some pics from the Black Hills, including a Devils Tower shot. We spent three nights at the Sylvan Lake Campground (very soggy, probably the worst of the campsites on the trip):

Here are some video clips of our time in the Black Hills:

Here are some pics from our drive through Wyoming and our ultimate stop in the Grand Tetons. We spent two nights in a tent cabin at Coulter Bay. Kids loved it — bunk beds and a brief respite from setting up the tent:

Here are the pics from our stay in Yellowstone (three nights camping at the Canyon campground). One of the nicest tent sites of the trip.

And here are a bunch of videos from the Yellowstone leg of the trip:

    Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders (money marketers) plague Fathers disqualified for affirmative action with white skin, Union workers, and consumers, taxpayers, and Americas grandchildren’s children. To pay for the more stock dividends (money) they market quarterly. In the wholesale and retail price of every product and service Human Beings use for life. And Government needs to build, maintain, and operate schools, libraries, and infrastructure; and provide local and national security and government services. That gets only product or service.
    This plague Makes free, fair, and affordable commerce IMPOSSIBLE; Makes funding schools, infrastructure, and etc. IMPOSSIBLE; Makes balancing every budget IMPOSSIBLE; Makes union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and America’s grandchildren’s children LIFE UNAFFORDABLE; and created Ohio’s $1.35 trillion budget deficit, the $40 trillion social security and the $14 trillion national debt. America’s grandchildren’s children are responsible to pay Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders interest with this debt until they are 18 years old. Then pay the debt with the $7.20 per hour government mandated labor wage.
    There is no reason to believe America’s grandchildren’s children that go to bed hungry can cure this plague with money derived from the $7.20 per hour government mandated labor wage in a hundred million years!

    Hopefully there is enough gold at the end of this rainbow to pay Ohio’s $1.35 trillion budget deficit, the $40 trillion social security and the $14 trillion national debt.

    Could the prairie dog be holing about Representatives us, the Government of this Representative Republic elects. Spending money derived from Union workers, consumers, and taxpayer’s wages and independent business profit. To pay for the more stock dividends (money) Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders (money marketers) market quarterly; in the wholesale and retail price of every product and service Human Beings use for life. And Government needs to build, maintain, and operate schools, libraries, and infrastructure; and provide local and national security and government services. That gets only product or service?
