The landscape is always changing

Every Monday we invite our daughter Kirsti to post from her home in Western North Dakota's oil patch.
People like to discuss how the oil industry changes the landscape here in western North Dakota.
I prefer to discuss how the landscape changes despite the industry and economy.
So much natural beauty surrounds us, just as it did hundreds of years ago. Untouched. Unchanging. And yet, never the same.
Bison roam in the National Park.
 Turkeys make their way across red dirt roads to find cover in the wooded lowlands.
 And Big Horn Sheep munch delicate spring shoots of grass in the warm spring air.
Today they're here. Tomorrow they're elsewhere. It's always changing. It's beautiful. It's exciting. It's my North Dakota home.
