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 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.
