It's birding in general. It got me thru a brain problem in 2013, which resulted in surgery and a shunt, in that time I found birds, and since then it has taken us, literally now, in places all over the world. Cool places, fire watch towers, lakes in India, and everywhere I go on business, there and along the way.

Very cool. Challenges provide unforeseen opportunities. I can relate. So, speaking of birds,



Here is the church at Bodega Bay. Such great roads to ride up that way...

Owls are cool ... until they take up residence in you garage above your car hood.

Loved the movie "The Birds" since I first saw it in High School, I'm a huge Hitchcock fan. Rode through Bodega Bay 2 years ago on my FJR.

Yeah, I really enjoy Bodega Bay. The Tides restaurant has some of the best King Salmon from the Russian River I have ever had. Watching the whales is a nice treat as well. The birds is a great movie. They don't make them like that anymore...

Here is Glacier Point. Unfortunately, they were burning controlled fires on this day. I was able to reduce most of the haze but may have overdid it in the process.

That is cool, I didn't know airlines did that. I thought only Railroads did.
The Iowa Interstate RR owns most of the old Rock Island track and has a locomotive painted as a Rock Island one.

Yeah, it is the only one I have seen with the "throwback" livery. The pilots in the terminal were taking photos of it with their phones, so it must be rare.

I've seen a lot of custom paint jobs on aircraft, but never one of a different airline. Very cool!

Here is a Gretsky moment, coming back from a business trip in Quebec City, we drove, we went through Badlands NP. It's neat, in the way if you like a lot of rocks and too many tourists way, probably better in the fall...but anyway, I was taking pictures of more rocks....



And if you look sort up upper right of the photo, just under the grassy plateau, you will see a dark spot. That's a crevice of sorts, so I zoomed in on it just to give it a try, took a picture, and really couldn't see the outcome because of the full sun.

Next day I downloaded the shots.

Very cool shot Tina. I like taking photos of rocks too. We may be passing through your area shortly after the eclipse on our way to Devil's Tower and the Black Hills. I have been wondering if an extra 100 miles over to Badlands was worth it.

Similar to what I told Akrie in his thread, going into that area in August is the suck. You got a million Harley riders around for Sturgis, and a ton of tourists at all three places you just mentioned. The best time, IMHO, to go to any of them is after Labor Day....but that's probably not when you or anyone else can make it, hence the traffic.

As long as you are patient and take the time and don't mind a bit of a wait here or there, along with weirdness like $20 to park at Mount Rushmore, it's all pretty cool.

I've turned around at Devil's Tower in mid summer on the bike, because the line to get in was a mile long. They have ONE point of entry with ONE booth, one employee.

Thanks.

It wasn't the best trip for birds, but there was some good stuff along the way.

Quebec City for instance.

Thanks! I've learned a lot, I hope. Like...a lot of patience. Not one of my stronger points.

Yeah, I figured as much although I would not have expected a mile long wait at Devil's tower. September really is my favorite month to tour. Perhaps I need to reconsider this eclipse thing and wait a couple of weeks. Regardless, if we end up near Sheridan, I'll buy you and Mrs. okaugust a drink.
