We decided to rehome our small flock of egg-laying chickens recently. Since we plan to sell our property here and move out to Montana within the next two years, we need to begin getting the yard recovered from where the chicken coop and run were located – because the chickens had stripped the ground completely bare, and getting the grass in that patch to match the rest of the lawn will take some time. But until then, we have some rogue sunflowers that began to grow around the edge of the chicken run – and they are now looking gorgeous.

This is the stunning view we had during our recent stay in Montana. From our vantage point, we could – on a clear day – see all the way down the valley into Idaho, some 65 miles away. A beautiful, beautiful place.

For our lengthy road trip out to Montana a few weeks ago, we passed through the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota. It’s a park that I’ve always wanted to visit, but just haven’t had the opportunity to do so just yet. At least this time we actually stopped to take some photos.
