After a few days of visiting down in Boise, it was time to head home. We got an early start and didn’t miss any turn-offs, so the drive home went pretty quick. We decided that one of these years we are going to have to allow ourselves some extra time to visit Craters of the Moon National Monument. This trip, though, we had to head for home.
We got home with enough time to get things put away and cleaned up, and Rob’s sister and her husband arrived the next morning. We played tour guides around Great Falls and took them to Ryan Dam to see The Great Falls of the Missouri River,
and then on to the First People’s Buffalo Jump.
Between sight-seeing and shopping, it turned out to be a pretty busy day. Next on the agenda was to decide where to go camping. Since Glacier National Park wasn’t ready for us just yet, we decided on Gibson Reservoir and headed out the next morning. The drive was breathtaking.
We had a wonderful time camping and fishing and exploring. The weather was a little on the cold side, but it didn’t really matter. We pretty much had the campground to ourselves, the fire was warm and the company was awesome.
The evening before we left, we came across this beautiful little spot. Once I saw it, I knew that if I could set up my tent anywhere I wanted, it would be right here. This is the spot where I would choose to live out my days.
But there are many places yet to explore, so once again we packed up and headed for home. I hate having to say good-bye to people, but on the drive back, we split off from Rob’s sister and her husband and they drove towards their home, and we headed towards ours. Opposite directions once again.
We are back home now and our vacation is over. Rob headed back to work this morning and I found myself wishing he were still home with me. I could get myself into a real slump over this, but it wouldn’t do any good. So instead, I will enjoy daily life while secretly looking forward to our next adventure. But for now, I will share some more pictures with you.
