Home Again

We're home, safe and sound, but dog tired! We arrived about 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday evening and, after a quick recap with Bruce's mom and lots of pets for Cody, dropped into bed.

I worked on Thursday, came home, ate dinner, then dropped at a little after 7:00. I'm feeling much peppier today and should be back to my regular routine by this weekend.

There is lots to share about our trip, but I'll parcel it off in small doses! Lots of quilt activity it coming soon - deadlines are looming and it won't be long until I'm off to Art Quilt Tahoe. Don't kid yourself, the holidays will be here before we know it!

We're in Jackson

We've been through Yellowstone and Grand Teton parks and seen tons of wildlife!

Bruce shot a picture of this buck as we were leaving Wind River Canyon on the way to Cody at the beginning of the trip. A beautiful 5-point, still in velvet.

We are having a good time although find Jackson to be a very stuffy and kind of obnoxious town as far as the people go. However, we did have dinner at a family restaurant called The Virginian last night, which was friendly and delicious and reasonable!

We're on our way back through Utah today, then on to Dad's in Bullhead.

Will post more soon.

No Pictures...YET!

We are in stunning Park City, Utah, tonight, staying at the Lodges at Deer Valley. What a terrific place! Our drive from Las Vegas was smooth and uneventful. Las Vegas was...well...Las Vegas. The hotel, Green Valley Resort, was very nice, but it would have been even better if there were no other people there. But that's a story for another day.

Park City is wonderful. We had dinner at Butcher's Chop House and ate on the outside patio in the fresh mountain air. Our room is great and has a king size sleigh bed.

We're leaving tomorrow morning for Cody after a quick stop for breakfast in Park City. Hopefully we can pick up lunch for the road...all there was today was McDonald's, Burger King and Dairy Queen at truck stops. Yuck. We ate a Clif Bar instead.

We're off to a great start. Will post more soon.

A hui hou!

Away We Go!

We leave tomorrow morning for our trip to the mainland. We'll be taking lots of pictures and will try to post as we go. Our trip will take us from Las Vegas through Utah, to Cody, Wyoming; then back down through Utah to Bullhead City, Arizona; then back home.

Two glorious weeks!
