There's been some talk of trying to connect with Ryan and Alicia McQuen (whom I married on July 13th) as they drive west to Everett, WA and we drive east. Not sure it will work, but we might cross paths in Montana somewhere and maybe at least wave at each other. Alicia has landed her "dream job" with the Snohomish County Public Health Department as a Disease Intervention Specialist in her field of tuberculosis. Congratulations Alicia!! Big changes in their lives! Good luck to them.
Ellen and I took a walk up Granite Canyon in Teton N.P. yesterday. It wasn't a long hike - 3 miles r.t., but that was about right for me. It was pretty warm, but not too bad. We saw an unusual wildflower on the hike which we later learned was called pinedrops.
Not sure when the next post will be -- I think Yellowstone is basically a cell phone and Wi-Fi free zone. Yay!
It is also a TV-free zone for the most part - so goodbye Olympics. Hello bison, elk, wolves, beautiful scenery, streams, late summer wildflowers, and maybe even a bear!
