All the going's on

Conestoga Campground
White Sulphur Springs, MT

There's been a lot of rain since we've been here,
making our days off somewhat limited.

Even this evening, a big thunderstorm went over..




As you can see, the campground is pretty empty still.
Gordon tells us when the weather breaks, it will get full :-)

Earlier this week when it wasn't raining,
we took a ride to Newlan Creek Reservoir.
It's only about 14 miles from the campground,
and looks like a nice place to put the Sea Eagle in this summer.


The drive there was beautiful, as always.


Also was the view from the dam..


We caught a picture of this guy.


I wasn't sure what it was until I got a nice shot
of him with my telephoto.
I looked him up, and I think it's a Swainson's Hawk.
Anyone else confirm that?


This afternoon there was a party for Gordon & Sally.
Today is their 45th anniversary!

There was a very nice cake, and ice cream, and banana pudding :-)
Their church members came to celebrate as well.



Lyddia and I helped serve the cake & ice cream...

Lyddia, Sally, me

and Blanche manned the phones in case they rang :-)


We're getting to hear the melodic sounds of the Meadowlark
right behind our site..


Life is good in Montana!

  6. Glad you're enjoying Big Sky Country. It is such a beautiful state. It's been way too long since we've been there, so we're very jealous of you. Guess we'll have to get our fix via your posts! :cD

  10. Area looks great. If the money wasn't so great where we are, we would consider giving that area a try.
