Saturday and Sunday, August 18 & 19 We spent the weekend doing things with the kids. On Saturday, Evan, Amanda, Miss B and I went to Cheyenne to do some school shopping. We stopped by the Harley Davidson store to pick up a chip for my cousin Sue. We were lazy on Sunday.
Friday, August 17 While the kids were at work and school, we decided to ride out and see the remains from the Badger Creek fire in northern Colorado. The skies were smoky again. Some of the aftermath of the Badger Creek fire in northern Colorado. While it is now fully contained, there are still many […]
Thursday, August 16 A day of rest from being in the truck. Since we weren’t going anywhere, I went to the backyard to take some pictures of Amanda’s flowers. Unfortunately, as is usual in Laramie, the wind was blowing pretty good. So I only got two photos.
Wednesday, August 15 We left the Best Western at 10:40 AM. It was 64 degrees and clear. Because I wanted something different for breakfast, we stopped at a small cafe in Sheridan. Tommy got a cinnamon roll and a pecan roll. The cinnamon roll had absolutely no taste and the pecan roll was stale. So […]
Tuesday, August 14 We left the hotel at 11:15 AM; it was 61 degrees and smoky. We got gas, ice and breakfast and headed south. When we travel, if we can’t find a local cafe to get breakfast, we will go to McDonald’s. It is a pet peeve of mine to get an Egg McMuffin […]
Monday, August 13 We woke up to another beautiful morning; it felt like Fall. When we left the hotel it was 55 degrees and clear. We gassed up and went to the Montana Nugget Casino again for breakfast. We planned on heading south. As we were leaving Kalispell, we found this beautiful church. Fishing on […]
Sunday, August 12 We woke up to a beautiful morning with no smoke. When we left the hotel, we weren’t sure where we were going to go but first we had to get some breakfast. Tommy asked someone at the gas station where we could get a good breakfast sandwich. He was told to go […]
Saturday, August 11 Going to Glacier National Park! The drive from Great Falls up to Glacier was really smoky. As we got closer to Glacier, the mountains seemed to all of a sudden appear. If there hadn’t been so much smoke I’d have said they were majestic. We drove into the park to the Visitors’ […]
Friday, August 10 We left Miles City at 10:00 AM. We thought that we would head towards Helena but didn’t know if we would stay there for the night, go farther or go a completely different route. We wound up in Great Falls instead. There was lots of this driving through eastern/central Montana: Grain elevators: […]
Thursday, August 9 We stayed at the Little Missouri Inn the night before. What a nice hotel it was. For dinner, Tommy walked to the restaurant, Teddy’s Lounge, that was in the hotel next door. I got a Steak Mochata Salad which was delicious! Tommy ordered medium hot wings that were really hot! We left […]
