This picture of bubbling chokecherry syrup was the first I considered in response to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge of words with two letters “r.” A friend had given us a bottle of chokecherry juice to make into syrup and after adding sugar and bringing the mixture to a boil, I had to grab a camera. The bubbles were prettier in person, but chokecheRRY fits this week’s challenge!
Riverfront Park was on the agenda for a walk yesterday. It wasn’t until on my way there I realized the words river and riverfront meet the challenge! The Yellowstone River is pictured above and some meRRy friends at RiverfRont Park are shown below.
Heading home on Rimrock Road after running errands, I realized the largest feature of the landscape here in Billings also fits the challenge: rimrocks! The city is located in the Yellowstone Valley, bordered to the south by the Yellowstone RiveR and to the north by the RimRocks. Read more about the rims on Wikipedia.
This picture of the rimrocks was taken at Phipps Park on the northwest corner of Billings. Bonus for this week’s challenge: a railroad line!
Just because I have it, here’s a picture taken a week ago from the top of the rimrocks, looking SSW over the city.
