Home again

Starting from Big Timber, MT on Thursday morning we played and ate lunch at the Prairie Dog Town State Park before heading West through the Rockie Mountains. Several quick stops through the state of Montana including a playground in Butte, overlooked by "Our Lady of the Rockies", a large white statue of Virgin Mary high on a mountain, and a rest stop near the Idaho border to make Mac N Cheese with hotdogs on the camp stove (dinner for 6 - cost - less thant $1. And considering the change from MST to PST at the Idaho border, we only spent about 10 minutes for dinner....). Although we had made reservations at the KOA in Spokane we opted to keep driving and get home that night. Liz said as much as sleep sounded inviting, she couldn't bear the idea of repacking the car one more time. (she was the master car organizer and did a much better job than I could have to make it all fit).

So on we drove. We arrived in Beaverton a few minutes after 3 AM. Today was spent returning the car to order, laundry, and long naps. I hope to share many more of the memories of our journey over the next few weeks.
