On the Road

Well, I am leaving today for my longest trip yet to Yellowstone and the surroundings. It is with mixed emotions that I am leaving. I really am looking forward to the time in the mountains, but for those of you who know me, you are aware that my dog, Austin, is very ill with congestive heart failure. I feel bad leaving Dori behind to take care of him, but I know he is in good hands.

I will be arriving in the Yellowstone area on Sunday, 14 June and start exploring in earnest on Monday. I will be in the park until Friday afternoon and then head out to Sheridan to see my dad for Father's Day. He and I are history buffs so we will head up to Little Bighorn National Monument. On Father's Day, I will return to Yellowstone by way of the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse range. Later that week I will head up to Glacier National Park for a quick scouting trip for a future project, and then return to Yellowstone until the 3rd of July, when I head out to Grandma's house in Nebraska. I love the Fourth of July back home. This will be a short trip to visit Grandma, but I intend to come back up in September or October.

During the trip, I will attempt to post some trip reports, however, I prefer to stay in the park lodges, and therefore no internet. Also cellular signals are bad at best, but if I am able, I will post abbreviated trip reports through the cell phone.

Anyway, if you are in the area and see me stop by and say Hello. I will have the King Ranch truck with Arizona plates.

See you under the Western Skies.
