Weekly Photo Challenge: Home

scoria-point

Friends, Home is where the heart is, so I am always at home when with my husband. He is my life.  When I was young the hills of North Dakota Badlands were my cherished home, where my mother had been raised and my grandparents lived.  When I visited them I was allowed to be a child,  and alone I would scour the hills and river bottom for pretty rocks, flowers, and fill my pockets with tiny trinkets.  My grandfather had ridden horses all over the badlands chasing cows and wild horses.  Now his homestead is part of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park and this place, Scoria point is by far the prettiest place in the park.  I captured this image when wet with a rare overnight snow when the red rock is very saturated. No photoshop was needed to saturate the red rock as nature was at work.  I am at home when in the badlands. til Tomorrow MJ
