Sunday, October 13 We left the house at 5:50, cloudy and 62 degrees. The first day is always the “get out of civilization as quickly as we can” day. And us doing that is always dependent on traffic, especially in Chattanooga, Nashville, St. Louis and Kansas City. We stopped at the Rend Lake rest area […]
While I was anxiously awaiting our Harvest Road Trip, I spent more time in the sunroom watching the birds and taking photos of flowers.
I began sitting in the sunroom and watching the bluebirds. This little guy was too funny taking a bath! Caught a cardinal at the birdbath and a chipmunk chomping down on acorns. I was also shooting flowers and playing with some editing.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, August 27, 28 and 29 Tuesday was spent getting ready to head home and sitting on the kids’ wonderful front porch. We left Laramie Wednesday morning at 8:30 and got to the Drury Inn in St. Joe at 8:30. Another opportunity for a yummy BBQ pork/chicken salad from Bandana’s BBQ. We […]
Monday, August 26 The kids went back to work and school so we went on a drive.
Saturday and Sunday, August 24 and 25 We left Rock Springs at 10:00. It was 50 degrees–in the middle of August! We were on our way to Laramie and Miss B. :) We got to Laramie at 1:05 and checked into the AmericInn. On Sunday we took lunch up to the Snowies. Even though it […]
Friday, August 23 We were going to drive through Yellowstone and Teton on our way to Laramie. Yellowstone: Teton: Once we got through Yellowstone and Teton, it was a pretty boring drive into Rock Springs. We arrived at the hotel at 6:30. Dinner was at the restaurant at the hotel–Old Chicago. My Spaghetti Pie was […]
Thursday, August 22 After some deliberation on where to go next, we decided to go to West Yellowstone. We drove through the Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve in Idaho. It was really interesting but kind of eerie. It consists of 750,000 acres of lava. We got to West Yellowstone at 8:00 and […]
Wednesday, August 21 When we got to the hotel the night before, we looked at the map to decide where we would go next. We realized how close we were to the Palouse area, a place I’d wanted to go but never thought I’d get to. So off we went! After we drove around the […]
Tuesday, August 20 We left the hotel and drove south on Highway 93. The whole area around Flathead Lake is absolutely beautiful! We drove on to Ravalli, MT, to find the place where we’d gotten Lambert cherries the year before. Happily we found the place and there were cherries to buy. When we left there […]
