6:09 am - Monday - October 2nd - 32º F, humidity 89%, wind 5 mph out of the north by northwest.....cloudy......low chance of rain (less than 20%)....forecast high for Gardiner, MT today is 40º and 39º F in Mammoth Hot Springs, WY.....WOW, where did that come from? Woke up to the news that some lunatic male opened fire from a room in a high rise hotel in Las Vegas last evening on a crowd watching a Country Music concert.......50+ killed, and over 200 hundred wounded....makes me glad I spend most of my time in rural America. My heart goes out to those families who needlessly lost loved ones, and to those who were wounded, or trampled in the madness that ensued. A good friend, and her daughter managed to escape, but suffered injuries when they fell and were trampled.....fortunately no serious injuries for them......just scrapes and bruises.
What a ride this summer has been! Friendships continue to deepen as the season winds down. It's time for another round of 'until next times' replete with long hugs and promises to remain in touch, and to somehow reconnect in the future. These are not hollow promises.....they are heart felt, and I know we will see each other again......
.......by 8:30 we hugged some more, then slobbered a little more, then went home.......just two more times up and down the Gardiner River Gorge before we roll our wheels!
Thanks for stopping by!
