Vacation is winding down and if you have followed me on social media you know that I have had a fabulous time. There is plenty of fodder and probably close to 1000 pictures for later blog posts but for now I wanted to post a few quick thoughts from our trip.
First of all I want to make my husband an internet sensation for his wisdom. Please feel free to share this picture anyway you want to. It’s pretty true in our life.
I might have also found the perfect road to live on in Idaho. What do you think?
The best Bed and Breakfast locations come with cats. No doubt about it.
Life flashes before your eyes quickly when you come within 10 feet of hitting an elk on the road.
My impression of Montana: Casinos and Crosses. In Montana casinos may be owned and run by anyone. In many other states that is designated for Native Americans only. They are everywhere. Montana also has tiny white crosses by the the sides of the road for each and every traffic fatality. It is a bit depressing. They were too depressing to take pictures of. They were started over 50 years ago by an American Legion member who hoped that the crosses would encourage folks to slow down and drive sober. It hasn’t.
Waking up to this scene outside our little bungalow gave me a bit of a start.
We later ate breakfast with the teenage girl who had shot the antelope (actually a pronghorn but it is commonly called an antelope) that was hanging in those bags.
I succeeded in eating an entire meal with chopsticks. Anyone in my family knows that that is a huge feat and I am well on my way since my soon to be daughter in law is Chinese. I need to up my game.
I observed that beard growth is proportional to days of vacation.
We missed the Trailing of the Sheep parade in Ketchum, Idaho by about 4 hours. This is a pretty amazing event where they herd 1500 sheep down main street to drive them to their winter pastures. Our schedule did not allow for us to see it but I can only imagine, can’t you?
As always my husband did the most fantastic job of planning our trip out from start to finish. We stayed at some pretty great places, saw more of God’s country than I could have imagined and made memories for a lifetime. Feeling pretty doggone blessed about now.
