Animal Wednesday As Seen Across The Plains

 These bovines were seen while driving in Utah on the way to the second fossil dig we did there...

hunting for and finding these prehistoric fish below. Here you see some of the ones DH discovered between slabs of limestone.

The rabbits were quite plentiful around Independence Rock, which we walked around on a pleasantly cool morning...

Prong Horns were also galloping around the same area that day.

These birds nests were high up in the rocks, but their dwellers had all fled the scene it seemed.

We saw buffalo in many places and in many states in our travels. I am not sure which these were.

It was fun to spy herds of wild turkey too.

This guy hopped a ride with us on the outside of our car. Not sure where we picked him up or where we left him off. I hope he enjoyed the trip as much as we did.

My driver, another animal of sorts, enjoying a rest at a pretty spot along the trail.

It was such a good trip. I'll be sharing more of it in photos now that I have down loaded over 1600 of them...boy a 16 GB memory card holds a lot of photos!
