We saw our first rainfall today….and lots of it. It was okay though, because we were done sightseeing and needed to drive 7 hours across Montana and into North Dakota. The rain wasn’t too bad until our last 20 minutes of driving. It really came down hard. We needed a good carwash. Once we got to our hotel, we dropped off our suitcases and headed to the hot tub and pool. It was a great way to relax those tense muscles.
The picture above is an elk that we saw in Yellowstone. I could’ve opened my car door, walked about five steps and petted him on those huge antlers. Instead, I chose to take the safe route and roll down my window and take the shot from inside the car. He was cool though. I was hoping to see a moose at some point, but this was as close to that as I got.
Tomorrow we vacation in lovely Fargo, MN. I see a hot tub and swimming pool in our future!
