When I spotted this sign outside of a house in Charlemont, Massachusetts, I thought it must be the home of some desperate parents! It took me a minute to realize they were selling goats!
On my first visit to Oregon, I wasn't aware that there were open range cattle, so coming around the corner and meeting this fella sure had me doing a double take! As you may notice, this picture was taken through my windshield!

The Yellowstone River
The pillar was named after Jean Baptiste Charbonneau, the son of expedition member Sacagawea, whom Clark nicknamed Pompy. It was changed from Pompy's Tower to Pompey's Pillar in 1814.

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
Joyce Kilmer 1886 - 1918

A former open pit copper mine, the pit is one mile long and half mile wide and is laden with heavy metals and dangerous chemicals. It has been closed since 1982.
Built by inmate labor, the first occupant was incarcerated in July of 1871. In the late 1970's, emptied of all prisoners, it became a museum complex dedicated to law enforcement.
