Road Trip to Montana Summer 2006...

Hello all, we are back from a very fun filled long trip to Montana to visit hubby's parents & to attend the renewal of their wedding vows for their 40th and a half
year anniversary...there are many more pictures I had about 250 of them, but below is the jest of it, needless to say besides all the fun we had & all the family time
we got in...we were pampered like a king & a queen, given the nice large room with a private bath at his parents house, which was so gorgeous & felt like being in
the most lovely spa, sadly I failed to take photos of their new home. I will have some next year from our winter holiday that we will be spending there...oh back to
the story, we were fed so much good food all food here seems pale in comparison. hubby's dad made the best MEAT I have ever tasted, the best burgers ever for
sure, now mind you I try not to eat too much red meat, but while in Montana, you can not help but eat red meat...Bozeman Montana where they live is a very gorgeous town...there is so much to tell,  like the great fire works on the 4th...no photos of that sorry, do not know why I did not have the camera with me half the time... we drove up through Nevada, then Idaho to Montana & back...oh yeah I did teach a class to a very nice lady named Julie in Billings Montana, more about that on the class page...
OH CLICK ON THE PHOTOS FOR A LARGER IMAGE

even though it was overcast and it eventually rained, yellow stone was one of the most lovely places I have seen...photo from a moving car, next time we
will have more time to stop and hike and hang out a bit...

 Eagles nest in Yellow Stone park, the rangers
had put no stopping signs near this nest, so we
the watchers would not disturb the family...

the funny thing about the Elk photo is that they were all turning away from the road or had already had their backs to us
 goodies I got at the very large farmer's market in Bozeman, the purse is hand made, the lady who made it is going to send me her contact info, she made the most amazing art purses and then sold them at very low prices, I told to raise her prices, for all the work she does...this purse has this port holes that have a different fabric under them and are then covered in netting and then stitched with colorful threads all the way around...I also got something for my dad at the Market, but since I have not given it to him yet, I am not going to list it here. the little hair clips are from broken china found on beaches in Japan, the lady who made them, actually lived there and picked up the pieces off the beach herself...oh yes the photos, the lady who sold these took them herself and then made the cards, just gorgeous, I am going to put them up in my studio, they are from yellow stone...
Hubby at the Sneak River in Twin Falls Idaho...gorgeous both him & the view
me at sneak river Idaho...

Fire Hole, a place you can swim in the cold rushing water in Yellow Stone Park

Big Sky Montana, everywhere you look is this gorgeous sky....
wow and mountains...America is so beautiful....

when we were at Yellow Stone Park, we went to see Old Faithful, the Geyser...we got there just in time, it was about to blow in about 5 min...what was interesting to me was the hundreds of people lined up to see this natural event go on...at one time, I felt that the entire group of people were just one big eye, watching for Old Faithful to go off...as if the geyser itself knew we were there, it would let out a puff or two, a bid of hot air once or twice & then when it knew we could no longer wait as the glooming clouds over head were about to unleash the power of a huge storm on us all, the Geyser went off, amid cheers, so did the storm, it was amazing...I took several photos as we all ran for cover from the harsh cold rain which by the time we reached the car transformed itself to good sized hail...after that we drove out of the park...and went on our way home...it was a glorious trip...my friend Patricia is right Yellow stone can be very spiritual, next time, I would like to go away from the tourist parts and hike the back country of the park for a bit...
the cuitest dog in the world, Dobby sleeps in his mom's lap...

right outside Reno in Nevada...we caught up with hubby's brother & his girlfriend in that van in front of us...it was a great road trip...

where we stayed in Reno, on the way up and on the way back, on the way back we won $200.00 there, we are not big gamblers at all....
another view of the sneak river in Idaho, my gosh this is so gorgeous, photos do not do it justice...

  one of a billion lovely sunsets we saw....
the happy gorgeous couple on the day of the renewing of their vows, it was a very spiritual ceremony that they wrote and talked about, it was very heart warming and lovely...40 years, congrats and here is to another 40....

the family at Yellow Stone, I am taking the picture...

Le Kiss...
we had so much fun there....

this little guy must get food from folks, since my mom in law was able to call him out for the photo...we did not give him or any other animals food in the park, we know better...
  another photo of Yellow Stone as we were leaving, it was raining and the sun was still out...

  and who is this, I never saw this Elk in person, but everyone said he was there, so I took the picture and blew it up and there he is...
