Nature at its Best!!
The Gravelly Range
With its wildflower fields
Nature at its best!
Another great day
With super four-wheeling friends
And our pup, TazE
That’s our TazE (Taz for Tasmanian Devil and E for Ears). She’s a love.
The wildflowers were spectacular!
Here are our friends, Barb & Don, brought their dog, Charlie.
And here are Barb & Don with both dogs:
And below I’m the one in short sleeves…
and Bob’s the guy in short pants!
Our buddies are great fun!
Won’t you click the arrow and come join us?
Yes, we got a little rain before we returned home,
but “Lucille” (our red-headed ATV – Polaris Razor –
who is a Ball), kept us dry!
What are your plans for this week?
In the USA we’ll celebrate Independence Day.
It’s a big deal in a Ennis, MT.
Nearly 6,000 extra folks come into our town
– our population’s only 1,000 –
for our Firehouse pancake breakfast,
4th of July parade,
I’ll post pictures on Thursday. OK?
If you’re in the area, join us!
You have a blessed week.
See ya tomorrow
Up, up, up we went on our Polaris side-by-side
Until we felt like we were at the top of the world –
The top of the Tobacco Root Range
We took a very rocky, steep mountain trail
and passed by some phenomenal scenes
to get to that high mountain view
where the air was so fresh and clean.
The skies were threatening, but the rain held off.
Sureshot Lake always is an inviting place.
There were kayakers out on the water.
It’s quite a trail to get there!
We stopped at the one out-house available on the trek.
Four guys and a dog… all chatted while Caroline and I used the facility.
(Tom, who let me ride along with him, is on the right)
No friend like a like-minded, outdoorsy, ATV-ing friend!
I am blessed to know this wonderful lady.
Thank you for your love, Caroline!
I wish this panoramic picture was brighter for you to see the vista better!
Pictures just don’t do it justice!
The wildflowers were beautiful.
Hard to capture their charm!
We traveled back past the rushing stream as we headed home.
It was a long, windy road back down the mountain
before it leveled off…
Then a long, scenic road home
through sheep and goat farms
(should have got some pictures of them) …
Many thanks to Tom Riggs for letting me ride along
on his Polaris Ranger side-by-side!
There’s our Madison Valley down there.
We were a long way up (above the 8,000 ft level).
Home is at 5,000 ft
I love our view!
Home Sweet Home
When are you gonna visit Montana?
Come and go ATV-ing and then
come sit awhile on the porch with me!
See ya tomorrow
