Everything Is 'Spacial' In Its Own Way



Taken at Pipestone National Park in Pipestone Minnesota when we stopped there for some hiking while camping at Split Rock Creek State Park the end of April 2011.



It had rained so much the pipestone pits, where the Indians quarry the stone, were filled with water.

It was our first camping trip of the season and the weather was totally uncooperative. We had storms the first night, but then it just threatened to rain the rest of the time. However, the wind was just wailing the entire time so badly that we couldn’t have a campfire and it felt like you were getting beat on all the time you were outside.


Some of the worst sustained winds lasting the entire time that I have ever experienced.  The wind even made driving to and from the park difficult.  In the photo above you can see the wind ‘bowing’ Mandy’s and Renner’s leads – and pant legs blowing.  Going across the bridge, which is where we were walking toward, we were being pushed into the railings by the wind. Holding little guy’s hand became a must as he could not even keep his footing.


It was also Mandy’s very first camping trip and she relied heavily on Renner to show her the ropes.



Renner, Mandy and Ruby did very well on this trip and are looking forward to the next.  The weather on this trip did kept us inside a little bit and then we left very early on the last day there.  I do believe Mandy was anxious to get back on the road and get back home.

  6. Oh wow! I love those shots of the rocks! You make me even more restless to get out and about, since we’ve been so tied to the house lately.

    Mandy, I think Renner is a good guy to follow! He seems very experienced in the ways of camping to me! The girls are all excited because they now have some leather collars in pink similar to yours. Well, Lilac’s is purple, but still similar to yours!

  7. nice photos…have a nice weekend to you


  8. Love the new look and, of course, the photos. Looking forward to more!

  9. Beautiful photos, especially the ones of Mandy & Renner. Hope you have better weather for your next camping trip. The winds around here can get pretty horrid at times and diminish the enjoyment of the outdoors.
