One of the things we have seen on a regular basis is a huge variety of roadkill. Today was your average rabbit, or hare (have yet to see a jackalope!)but have seen skunk, badger, red-tail hawks, and a variety of smaller birds, deer, voles, squirrels, cats and even a dog. It is really remarkable how many animals get killed, but probably more remarkable how many live.
We have been staying mostly in Best Westerns. We love Best Westerns! Especially after a night like last night where we had to stay at the Budget Motel - and it was all that the name implies. We had to yank so hard on the faucet to get the water going, we thought we were going to pull the sink out of the wall! However, we did have a bed with clean sheets, and a hot shower.
Not many photos from today, but we forgot a few from the other days, so we are going to add them below.
