It was a crazy wild five day drive from Connecticut to Livingston, Montana.
A few 10 to 12 hours of driving.
Many times waking up with the moon.
This drive by moon shot looks like a spooky pumpkin.
I enjoyed our drive on I-90…big open spaces and no traffic what-so-ever..
No time to stop and take photos when the driver has a destination in mind.
I was only able to get a shot of these two.
Rancher Marvin Jobgen has weathered many storms in his 40 years in business, but he's never lost as many cattle as he did during the record-setting winter storm Atlas. A third of his cows, about 100, and 15 percent of his calves died. Two weeks after the October 4 blizzard, livestock producers in western South Dakota are still counting their losses and burying would-be profits in bone pits.
The storm slammed into the region after days with temperatures in the 70s and 80s, catching producers and cattle unprepared. State veterinarian Dustin Oedekoven says so far 7,500 cattle have been reported dead, but that number will grow because right now "reporting isn't high on everybody's mind."
That evening we park and spend the night at a Walmart in Billings,Montana.
Yellowstone river off to the right..
Parked in front of Sisters home for a few days..
Ahhh…time to rest before we head further west.
