We will combine some great family occasions (the delivery of the 2nd grandchild to college and a visit to our Mikey and his family in Steamboat Springs, CO) with a trip of the lifetime to historical shrines along the Lewis & Clark Trail in mostly Montana.
The last 10 days, we will do a 1,000 mile road trip through South Dakota and Montana in a van with our pals, the Boyds and the Staffords (pictured in the opening photo in Cortona, Italy last year). We are responding to a casual invitation from Linda and Joe Franchini to visit them near Glacier National Park. We were sitting in a restaurant (the 8 of us) in Cortona at the time. How improbable and delightful that we world travelers have the time and the curiosity for an adventure together.
