Alarmingly Large Cow

This would be Salem Sue, the World's Largest Cow, found at the 127 exit on I94 west of Bismarck, ND. Actually she's a Holstein and she commemorates the local dairy industry.

This would be the view of Salem Sue at seventy five miles an hour westbound. That's her on the right edge of that hill. She really stands out for miles.

This would be the eastbound seventy five mph view, with the late afternoon light reflecting on the inside of my windshield.

Just as an aside - oh man the water is blue in northern Nebraska, South and North Dakota. I'm used to muddy brown at home and muddy red in Oklahoma. But up here? Heck, even the nasty slimy puddles are blue. Considering the white deposits seen when one of the swails dry out - I suspect the water is very hard and that is lime left behind. Sure is purty, though.

Soda, or alkali, more likely Jeffro.
