Sorry it has taken so long to get this together.  I finally got the photos up on  I also put them on Facebook this time.

We had a great time.  Lisa, our daughter, and her husband, Rich came up from Auburn, Washington with their fine fox terrier, Madison.  We hiked and biked and just enjoyed one another in general.

On the fourth, there were over forty people on the grounds.  Some I didn't even recognize, but apparently someone did. ;o)

I took Lisa and Rich on a "high altitude" bike ride and we all learned something.  I that it's great to ride with someone.  Lisa and Rich that there's not much O2 up there.

The food was excessively good...emphasis on the word excessive.

On Saturday, our nephew TJ, his wife Amy and our six year old Grand Niece, Viv(ian) came and stayed for a night. What a treat it was to see them too.  As true adventurers, they slept in a tent next to the large willow tree in our "front yard."  Viv and Auntie Lynn hit it off beautifully.  It's a joy to see them together. Viv got Lynn into the paddle boat on the lake more times than I could have imagined.

When everyone had left, on Sunday, it got mighty quiet at the place.  Lynn and I had a chance to hike a bit on the Lodgepole Trail.  The Indian Paint Brush and Bear Grass were out in force.  I captured a few for your viewing pleasure.

That's it for this issue.  We'll be doing some local Motorhome Camping soon, so I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for checking in...
