North Unit...

October 08, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This weekend was another trip to get some fall colors in Theodore Roosevelt NP "North Unit". It was a nice sunny day compared to the last time we had visited. Not having overcast smoky skies was refreshing but gave us another challenge we did not expect. The sun was in our face most of the day due to most of the North Unit sights being on the south side of the road that goes into that part of the park. We have come to the conclusion that if you are looking to have great pictures in this part of the park you need to be there and ready when the sun comes up. You will find the sun will be your nemesis the rest of the day if you do not.

We did get some photos out of the trip thought even if we would give the trip a "C" grade from our past trips. The one thing that did happen though was seeing, for the first time, a bull play and roll in a sleeping pit they make. We had never seen that before so that was a great experience. Even though it did bring up another problem. We had been taking landscape pictures all day and when this happened we had our settings to one picture at a time instead of on the rapid fire we needed. So, in that scenario we only got a few pictures and left thinking of what we could have had if that setting had been set correctly ahead of time. Oh well, it never goes a 100% to plan but we did get something out of it.

We hope you enjoy the pictures that we have put into the People, Wildlife, Miscellaneous and the new Theodore Roosevelt NP/Medora albums. :-) Enjoy...
