Tuesday rain gives us a chance to play dominoes. 

Our travel weather has been superb…throughout our lives. And, this trip – in three parts for almost a month – has been no exception.

Today, because we needed a relaxation day, we experienced a Rocky Mountain rain day & 50 degrees…not conducive to outdoor activity. Now, Joe Franchini has been a mountain man for years – trail building, snow-shoeing, kayaking, ice-fishing, fence mending, horse-riding, etc. – and his belief is, “Don’t let the weather change your plans”.  So, he found some kindred spirits in Butch & Louise and showed them around the property in the rain and sent them on a walk down the dirt road with their deer-spray & marine whistle.

Some others found another way to enjoy the day with books & blankets.

We enjoyed learning a game called Mexican Train with dominoes and everyone won a round and got to push the button and make train noises. I’d include this sound, but doubt the wifi could handle it.

We look forward to some hiking tomorrow and Joe has the knowledge of this area like no one else. He has a list of great places for us to “brave the elements & the creatures”. We will see about that with some bad weather aversion imbedded in our group.

Let’s reach back a few days and try to transmit a photo of the bear we saw when on the boat on Swiftcurrent Lake. My long lens (300mm) and some cropping made this work. Let’s see if I can send it. Oh, shoot…it’s in my computer..:let me see, if I can switch machines.


Stand by.
