Not much happened today until.....

Okay, today we went to West Yellowstone, Montana to do laundry - which was VERY expensive - $1.75 a load and then .25 for 8 minutes of drying time - anyway, $10.00 later we had the laundry done and Dan wanted to look around town - We did eat lunch at a little diner next door to the laundry mat - Dan looked at a new hat, but decided to wait until we went over to Jackson Hole. But, to the picture- we were driving home and about 3 miles from where we live I looked out the window and starting yelling at Dan to stop and pull into this parking area where all these people were fishing - he was like "Why??" I yelled "MOOSE!!!!!" I'm yelling for him to stop and trying to grab my camera out of the backseat and trying to open the truck door all at the same time. Dan is yelling at me not to get out of the truck, but there was NO WAY I was going to miss taking pictures of my FIRST MOOSE!!!! I jumped out of the truck and started down the path - then I did decide to slow down and try not to make too much noise and startle her. I guess I was about 20 yards away when she stepped into the river and I started snapping away. I took 32 pictures of my first moose - some are really good, other not so good BUT I have now seen a moose -not a male moose, but a moose!!! Now, we will have to look for a male moose. We also saw a herd of antelope (which BTW was what we saw before not deer, but there were still 3 babies), a hawk, and a marmot (which is sorta like a ground hog for those of you back east). There is wild life everywhere, and I'm loving it.

Of course, I still didn't get the house clean - not that it is THAT dirty, but I would like to run the vacuum and sweep the floor, clean the bathroom and dust the light fixtures. Maybe, I can get that done first thing in the morning before Dan wants to go to Jackson Hole. He also wants to go into Yellowstone - I don't know if that will be tomorrow or Wednesday, but you can bet we will get there this week (before the 4th).

We also found out about our mail and I called my friend and let her know how to send all our stuff to us. If anyone wants the mailing address, just email me or let me know in the comments and I will get it to you. I am also uploading photos to Picasa's web album - it will take me awhile to get everything downloaded, but hopefully once I do that I can give you a link to the web albums and you will be able to see all the photos - the good ones and the not so good.

I hope you enjoy the picture of my first moose and I'll post more pictures of the wildlife when I see them - and I can't wait to see more!!! Yahoo!
