Saturday Snapshot - February 11

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

I'm reaching back into the vault this week--if you've been reading this blog for a a few years (or if you follow/are a friend on FB....or part of the TLC Readers FB group), you've already seen these.  But, it's rainy here and we've done nothing picture-worthy this week, so there you go!

This past week was the birthday of one of my favorite authors--Laura Ingalls Wilder.  In 2014, when we did our epic road trip, we were able to visit 3 of the places she lived (we still need to hit the sites in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri!).  Here are some pictures of that trip....

De Smet, SD

The Ingalls Homestead.
The cottonwoods in this picture were planted by Charles Ingalls.

This is actually just a glorified rest area....
