Now, I'm sure you are wondering what in the world this picture is all about - well, folks, if you look real close you will see snow on the window - yes, I said SNOW! At about 11,000 feet we ran into snow - the temperature was down to 31 degrees. It didn't last that long, but it was really cool (no pun intended)! Dan and I were really very excited to see the snow. Dan thought we would see about 39 degrees, but the temperature kept dropping the higher in the mountains we went. There was snow in different places on the mountains and there are some pictures of the snow in the pictures that will be posted at the end of the blog, but I just had to include this picture for you.
This is just one of the many waterfalls we saw on this trip - it was beautiful and there are more pics of this waterfall and others on the link. We also saw many different animals on this trip - in the Beartooth Mountains we saw deer in many different places - we went into several campgrounds (you know Dan, he just has to see what is available out there) and saw some deer in these campgrounds. We also saw them along the road side - Dan says that I am getting pretty good at spotting deer (if I was just as good at finding bears or moose or something like that!)
There are some awesome pictures of buffalo - this is just one of them - I hope that you will enjoy the pictures that will be posted at the end of the blog. There are some pictures of a surprise animal at the end of the link - these are of an animal that is not commonly photographed by "non-professionals". Let me know what you think.
Today we went into Rexburg to Wal Mart (that's where I picked up my migraine meds) and picked up the few groceries and things. We ate at Sonic (wow, a chili cheesedog!!!!) Sorry, Crystal, but mom has to have a fix every once in a while! We also drove around the town which we had never done before - did you know that there was a Brigham Young University in Rexburg - we didn't, until today. Anyway, a "quick" trip to the store takes 4 hours! Such is the life living out in Idaho. (Oh, by the way, I found out there is a Wal Greens in Rexburg - so I can order pictures and pick them up here instead of having them mailed to Dowling Park to Joyce - which means I can do some scrapbooking here. Yeah!) Okay, I've bored everyone enough for one day - so I'll sign off - one more thing though - told you I would be wrong about Kipton and Ed - she chose Ed who was the front runner all along - I hope that they will be happy and actually make a go of it. Okay, enough on that - I won't mention it again.
Tomorrow is laundry day - oh joy! Then back to work for a couple of days. I know that one thing we will do next week is go to West because they are having a Mountain Man Rendezvous and Dan will HAVE to go to that! Please, let me know what you think of all this stuff - I just love to read your comments!.
Here is a link to today's pictures - Enjoy!
