OK Can you find the prairie dog?
Looking from Bear Butte we had wonder what the haze was about and found out from a lightening strike a forest fire started.
Can you see the two buffalo out there....? Well when the Sacred Hoop Runners started to come they got excited and a Native Park Ranger let us know that the buffalo think the runners are wolves and are going to get them so the get all excited and antsy.
We chatted with the Elders, their Grandmother's, and found out this was a Family affair and they had run the day before at Devils Tower with there Daughters. And the Fathers and Son did earlier. They came in and headed to the Sweat Lodge below and will have a big dinner later this night.
I had some chilly spiritual stuff happening as I witness this and Randy was talking with the One Grandmother and she said there is problem with Meth and Heroin there....Doing the family things is so big in their traditions and culture....as we all are dealing with some form of addiction in our families...it just hit me the timing this whole vacation/ anniversary trip has been a blessed experience for sure. We had no Idea this would be going on at this time we drove up there. With Permission I share this video.
