White Sulphur Springs Slideshow
 This is the last sunset we are going to see while in Montana this year.  Over the past few days we have ridden our bikes into town for various reasons; ie, haircut, post office, and sight-seeing.  The castle was built in 1892 and is now a museum.  Other than that, the main attraction for White Sulphur Springs is the hot springs, which is now a hotel.  The slideshow only has nineteen pictures in it, and it is just some of the local sights and our last sunset, pre-storm and post-storm.  Enjoy!

I know I haven't made a post in awhile, but I have been busy relaxing...lol.  Life here in Montana slows down.  There isn't a lot of excitement, but there is a lot of serenity.  We had a good worship on Sunday, followed by lunch with a group from the congregation, who happened to be fellow campers.  Our excitement came when our neighbor's little 13 year-old autistic grandchild was missing after dark.  Thankfully, I found her in another camper's trailer and led her back to her grand-parents.  Needless to say, she was in big time trouble.  I have been spending quite a bit of time turning wood.  I have made a number of pens and pencils, as well as, a small ironwood bowl.  The following pictures are from tonight's sunset.  Just another beautiful Montana sunset!

Sunrise to Great Falls to Sunset Slideshow
We got up extra early this morning to witness the sunrise.  It was beautiful!  We then drove to Great Falls with every intention of trading our car in.  However, when we arrive our transmission went out.  So, now we need to get it rebuilt before we can trade it in.  None the less, we had a beautiful drive, followed by another beautiful sunset.  Enjoy the slideshow!

Off-Road Trip to Baldy Mountain Slideshow
We took an off-road trip in our friend, Deacon's, Jeep today to the top of Baldy Mountain.  We saw Gypsy Lake along the way and ended up in Townsend for dinner.  I drove the Jeep back to White Sulphur Springs and as we got back into town we saw this really old Cadillac.  It was a really great day!

Pasco to Missoula Slideshow
Missoula to White Sulphur Springs Slideshow

We had a really nice trip over the last two days, in spite of my being a little sick and our car having problems.  We spent last night in a Walmart parking lot in Missoula, Montana with about fifty other RVs!  Tonight we are in the campground that will be home for the next two weeks, Conestoga Campground in White Sulphur Springs, Montana.  Gordon and Sally Stewart, the park owners, are two very fine Christian people.  We look forward to seeing them every year.  You can check out their website at http://www.ccmemberships.com/  Enjoy the slideshows!

Red Bluff to La Pine Slideshow
We traveled from Red Bluff, California to La Pine, Oregon today.  It was a nice trip and we are staying at a nice RV park where the temperature will probably get so low we'll need to throw on an extra blanket.  Enjoy the slideshow!

We are finally preparing to leave Visalia!  Our television saga ended today with Target sending us a gift card for the amount the television cost us.  We had a good evening with our friends, Ben & Alice Bennett.

While Una went shopping, I spent most of the day working on wood, building a new flag pole, and various other chores.  However, this afternoon she treated me to a pedicure!

Went to the Memorial service for David Ashford, Patty Goodin's son.  After that we spent the afternoon with the Kildays -- a movie, Captain America, and dinner at Chili's.  And our TV saga continues, while we hope they just replace it.  Hopefully, we will find out in the next few days.
