Now somewhere in the Black Hills of South Dakota, there lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon. That Beatles lyric would be more interesting if this were South Dakota. It is not. Now if Rocky Raccoon took a trip to Death Valley in California... THEN we'd have had something. This is why that band didn't make it.
The Road to Wildrose - as in Wildrose the town/camping area in Death Valley, California, was about 18 miles long and we were hoping we could get out the other end but - get this - flooding damage had closed the road down near Wildrose. Flooding damage - in Death Valley. Climate change FTW.
So we enjoyed the sunset views in the foothills of the mountains that make the valley that is famous for heat and emptiness... and you can do with your free exciting desktop calendar.
Head over to the Central Illinois Photoblog and get yours while they last. Which will be infinite... And whistle a little Rocky Raccoon.
