Left Belfair 0530 Wednesday morning and stopped in Bozeman, Montana about 1900 that night. (I could live in Montana!) Over 700 miles! Really not much traffic getting out of the Seattle area and the scenery on the drive was mostly absolutely beautiful!
Got up early Thursday morning and went to Yellowstone National Park. Wow! All the geysers and Old Faithful and buffalo and elk and just the scenery was outstanding! (I could live in Yellowstone Park!) Got a lot of great pictures.
Drove through Yellowstone and stopped for lunch at some little place outside the park that was built by Buffalo Bill (reasonably priced too!) (I could live near here easily!) and drove on highway 14 for one of the most scenic drives Iâ€™ve ever been on. Got up to 9000 feet plus and the view of the valley on the other side of the mountains was WOW.
Stopped in Sundance, Wyoming for the night (I could live in many places in Wyoming!) at a real nice family owned inn.
Got up early Friday morning and took off to spend most of the day (almost lost) in Nebraska until we finally got back on 29 South to 90 East and got all the way to Des Moines before stopping again. Drove through an area under a Tornado Watch and hit a sudden downpour with marble sized hail (and heavy heavy rain and wind) before getting to Des Moines. Got some great video of lightning at the motel we stayed at.
Got up early Saturday morning and drove across some of the most boring scenery you can imagine. The land is totally flat from Des Moines to Oregon, Ohio.
Iâ€™ll post all the pictures Iâ€™ve taken so far tomorrow to my gallery or SkyDrive.
But we made it safe and sound and have been here since yesterday. Just hanging around with the in-laws. Helped them get rid of some wood today by advertising it on Craigâ€™s List. Doing all we can really.
Made a flight with the Drone earlier and crashed into the only tree in the back yard. Acres of clear land and I hit the only tree I could possibly hit! Damn!
Got a Happy Fatherâ€™s Day greeting from my youngest daughter that means the world to me. Cool!
Not much else going onâ€¦
