Calling all wild antelope...

 We headed out this morning around 8:30 a.m.  We are hoping to get to Dodge City, Kansas with enough time to set up camp and chill out!  We are all so excited about this trip as we haven't been on such a long excursion ever... and it has been a long time since we have had a vacation!


We had been driving for about four hours and had already seen about 300 long horned antelope!  I had never seen so many big animals just hanging out free grazing the countryside!  I had been trying for about 2 hours to get a good picture of a couple antelope as we zoomed by and had no luck... so I finally put a call out... "Calling all wild antelope... picture by the fence please!"  Wouldn't you know about a half mile later there were two antelope hanging out by the fence alongside of the road!!!  I wasn't ready for the picture and missed the opportunity!  Shortly after that, we didn't see any more antelope!

This was the best, somewhat blurry, picture of the antelope that I got... they were everywhere, but so elusive with the camera!  We also saw a coyote running around... and JD swears he saw an elk... no picture of either of those so there's no proof.
