Forest fire season–today was hot and very windy. Many evenings we have thunderstorms–no rain, only dry lightening which breeds all these forest fires you see on this map. Today was the first day the air has been smokey. I went to Big Timber for bird seed and fudge bars–a necessary summer in Montana treat–and on the way home the mountains were almost totally obscured by smoke.
We are planning our maiden voyage in the toy hauler trailer–we are trying to find a cooler place to be in Montana. The Cowboy has vetoed my choice–Cooke City, Montana at 7500 feet elevation is seeing temps in the high 70’s. But the Cowboy doesn’t want to pull the trailer through Yellowstone Park and I can’t really blame him–this time of year, the Park is a zoo and I’m not talking about the wildlife!! So, we are looking at mountain ranges over near Wisdom, Montana.
Tonight Lonn, Mike, Katie and the sweetest little boy, Brooks came to have dinner with us. They are busy, busy with guests–it’s that time of year for them too–guest time that is.
We’ve had a hummingbird hatch I think–I’m filling the feeder at least once a day–the hummers even caught Brook’s attention tonight.
And it’s that time of year when it’s hard to find blog worthy material–thanks for sticking with us!
