Nope, Not Doing it This Time Around


Black Kettle National Grasslands, Oklahoma

Beans and I went for a walk.  She got up to about this part and put on the brakes.  Not going up there this time Dad.  I took her back home.  Can a cat remember something from five years ago considering all the places we have been in the meantime?

It was a lovely spring morning and I would enjoy it by myself I guess.

We tried that spot where the RV is when we arrived but found where we were before was more level.  If you look closely you can see the man fishing from the point while his wife and kids are back against the cliff.  The van in the distance is on the only other somewhat level place, but we are happy where we are.

The lake/reservoir looks in good shape.

I am standing on the earthen dam.

Surveyed the year I graduated from high school.

Looking back towards the east I imagined the Native people living in this area long ago.
The Southern Cheyenne and the Arapaho lived here.

Now to go back down these steps very carefully.
Didn’t used to be that way for me not that long ago

Drummond’s Onion
I didn’t sample this one.

That was a nice article about sky burials Debby.  Thank you.

Dead Indian sign seems kind of strange. Loved the molest one too. Looked like a lovely walk. Beans missed out. Drummund family in Oklahoma got a huge land grant back when. Ranch over 20,000 acres. Know this from watching Pioneer Woman. I'm laughing thinking of you checking out her program.

Funny, Kathe. That's the very first thing I thought of when I read 'Drummond's Onion'.

Seems like such a nice place. And temperatures in the 70s and 80s. I am so jealous. It's sleeting here. It feels like forever since the sun has shown.
