So I have been waiting all winter and spring for all
the white stuff on the ground to melt so we could start
making plans to go to our place in Island Park, Id.
It all started the year after we were married that we
made a trip to Yellowstone for our first vacation. We took
our small boat and fished on Yellowstone Lake. That is where
I caught my first fish.
The next year we went to Henry's Lake (14 miles south of
West Yellowstone). It is a trophy lake with big trout in it.
So for the next 7 years we camped at Henry's Lake in our
truck and camper. Every evening the sky would turn dark,
the wind would kick up and it would come in and rain. The
lake made its own weather for some reason.
In 1989, we decided that we LOVED that area with its lucious
green fields of grass with antelope grazing, the forest tree's
blankleting the mountains and valley's and the crisp air carrying
the smell of the pine tree's is unbelievable, that we bought a place
that we call home for the summer. We're always doing something
to improve it so that maybe when Scott retire's it'll all be done and
we can just sit and enjoy the birds and the wildlife all day long...
So we took our fifthwheel trailer up a couple weeks ago and stayed
up there for the 4th of July holiday. We got surprised a few days
into our vacation when the kids decided to show up with their trailer
and enjoy the holiday with us.
So we took a few rides in our new Razor and even found that white
stuff called SNOW!!
Landon had a blast up there, playing in the creek, smelling the
wildflowers, watching the birds and even seen a mother cow moose
with her new calf the size of a medium dog.
