I was asked...
A NEW ADVENTURE
Montana (and all the states in between that we saw, South Dakota, Wyoming, Kansas, Iowa, etc) were beautiful. The most amazing thing we found was when there was a hill (think small mountain) ahead of us, you never knew what the view would be from there. The closer we came to Montana, the quicker it changed as we rose and caught an glimpse over the next rise in the road. I have included a picture or two. Somehow, pictures cannot give justice to the views.
I thought about my life over the past ____ well past SEVERAL years. It has been much like this. I never knew what to expect over the next hill. I had to wait until I got there and looked down...always different, always unexpected, alway an adventure ahead. It was more beautiful with each change in my life. Sam's retirement and my books has been something I never quite expect as we climbed the hill to retirement. But, just like before, it's an adventure.
I have heard from Sam from Gallatin National Park a few times, only when he rose above 9,000 feet atop his horse, Flash, and his cell phone could get out. He is having a great adventure. He is loving every minute of it.
In Billings, MT, I have had my own adventures with museums, spa times, and meeting new people in the RV park. They love my southern accent and their first question is "where are you from?" When I say, "Tennessee," They reply with "I knew it." LOL.
LIFE IS FUN
Went to see the Lone Ranger!! It was so cool to see where we had ridden in Monument Valley just one month ago. For those of you who have heard about my "melt down" story that I had on Sam in Monument Valley while riding horses, perhaps now you can see why!!! For those who did not hear it, Our Navajo guide wanted us to go up a steep, sandy bank along the edge. I melted down, slid off the horse, shook like a leaf, dissolved into tears, sat under a bush, and threatened to walk out of the desert!!! No amount of coaxing by either could change my mind!!! We had to return the way we came, along the rim (scary enough by itself). If I went up that embankment I KNEW I would fall into what looked like the Grand Canyon to me!!! It looked just like the movie showed it to be. I wouldn't take anything for the adventure we had, but "melt down" on him I did LOL. Funny, and entertaining movie. Sam just said , "you would ride up that bank now, wouldn't you?" NOT IN THIS LIFETIME!!!
(I know you guys are feeling sorry for Sam for taking me along!!!). :)
