Prairie Chicken Lays a Trekker

A Favorite Image from the Archives #39 on Scavenger list

1987 American Lung Association TransAmerica Bicycle Trek
I along with ~195 cyclists raised money for the ALA. We rode our bicycles from Seattle, WA to Atlantic City, NJ in 46 days. One of my fave pix from the trek.

13 foot tall Prairie Chicken Monument is in Rothsay, MN. A couple of the trekkers decided to try and climb onto it. Got this shot & thought it looked like a trekker being born. Day 21 on trek (Fargo, ND to Alexadria, MN 108 miles)

Harmony Kingdom 'Baby Boomer'
The unusual looks & mating rituals sported by the Prairie Chicken, or ‘Boomer’, captured Harmony Kingdom's Peter Calvesbert imagination. He carved 'Rothsay' into the lid seeing the monument.
