July 19th/21st 2009 Keeping track of time Having endured a terrible night - despite its beautiful scenery, Wolf Creek Campground is not a 100 metres from the I-95 with trucks and cars hurtling by at all hours - Nik and I set off for the Big Sky: Montana. We skirted around Moscow before stopping at Panhandlers Pies in Sandpoint for brunch. Hashbrowns, griddle cakes, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs ... Read Full Entry

I look like I’ve been tangoed; I’m sure I’m not really that orange!

Montana
As you say, there aren't enough adjectives to describe it. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. The photos are wonderful, and it's good to see you looking so happy. We thought about you on the 20th - you weren't alone! If this is what Montana is like, why are we all not living there?! As you've probably heard, we are having an English summer - rain with the occasional sunny spell. We're really looking forward to hearing about Yellowstone and the long tail-backs of the cars, camper vans and trailers trying to get into the park. Do take the advice of the rangers seriously. In the Canadian Rockies, people wear bells about the size of golf balls on their belts or back packs to warn the bears of their coming. lots of love.

Beautiful Montana
Sweetheart, you have convinced me good and proper! Those photos bring tears to my eyes - as does your 'encounter' with you Mum. What a truly awesome (in the very best possible sense of the word) experience you are having - even if it sounds as though you are travelling around half the world with all the different place names you'vce encountered so far! This is probably the best posting to date and I'm sure will be very hard to beat. Keep them coming!!!

Bear bells
Apparently the bells don't work - the bears can't hear them?

Cat
Yes, Alex, that really is a cat on a mountain. People literally bring everything with them on holiday, including their pets. Walked past a nightclub today in Salt Lake City - it has a swimming pool in the back. It made me think of you!

Hey. Sounds like you're still loving the road-tripping life style - although why wouldn't you be. The photos are amazing. Glacier national park looks absolutely stunning. Will have to send you not so good photos of the temples of egypt. Although waiting for mel to get back from her family trip to south america to exchange crazy stories - it may be a close call (but things happening to the bataillards are always going to be slightly wierder than to me!) Take care. x

The Bataillards
Indeed, they always get up to strange things on their annual adventure. Mel mentioned you were or had been to Egypt. I was there over 20 years ago - it was interesting, but hot and dusty. Kind of like where I am at the moment!
