Hay meadow

Here is one of the hay meadows I found so charming that I had to write a column on the topic.


The Grand Tetons have been photographed countless millions of times, and I post my feeble attempts here just to prove I was there.

Picnic area, Wibaux, MT

Upper Falls, Yellowstone

Home again

There has been some heat in NW Minnesota in my absence. The tomatoes were green when I left and some of them have ripened now.

Last night, we stayed in Bismarck. We did not expect to find good Mexican food there, but at the Fiesta Villa in the downtown area, we hit the jackpot.

Another jackpot: Bidding low on a hotel over the internet while on the highway and getting the Radisson. Very, very nice, especially compared to the previous night in Livingston, MT, where we drew a hotel which I can only describe as bizarre.
