Dead buffalo everywhere! Well, only three actually. Yesterday I went on a long walk through the Badlands while chanting my 11 Rudrams for the day. I saw many bison and prairie dogs, a porcupine, a herd of mule deer, a nighthawk, two magpies, and many western meadowlarks. I also found 3 buffalo skeletons, but only one of them still had a skull. I imagine hikers took the other two skulls. I was tempted to keep the one I found, but I was many miles from camp and it was heavy and pretty fresh, still reeking strongly of death. I did keep the one small horn it had though as well as a tooth. Today the weather is much nicer and I look forward to venturing out again, this time with my tripod to try filming wildlife for my next video. Who knows what I’ll find. The Badlands are always full of mystery and surprises.

I am a musican, poet, mystic, and nature lover who fled the east coast in 2020 to a ranch in Sundance Wyoming. I basically walked away from everything to live the life I want to live, cherishing the natural world, living close to Nature, diving deep into my soul, and expressing the journey through art and music. I will make my stand in God's country as the world turns to hell around me. The way out, is in. View more posts
