(Sorry Gigi, you are "enjoying" a heat index of 111 F!)
Our getaway was to celebrate our 32nd Anniversary.
Am I really that old?
I don't feel old.
In my previous post,
I did mention snow.
I'm 5'3, I have idea how high this snow pack was.
The view at the summit was stunning!
Birds were flying below us.
Elevation of Beartooth Pass is over 12,000 at the summit!
Loved the drive.
Loved the solitude.
(This is me about to go rapelling...or not.)
I also mentioned seeing Bear Butts
(No, Cherie, not Bare Butts.)
Little Black Bear cub.
I also mentioned HUGE TRAFFIC JAM!
I probably should have rephrased it to
HUGE THINGS THAT JAM TRAFFIC!
This is outside of the car window.
Then we ran into this FOXYcreature!
The colors on her coat were so gorgeous!
(This was once again, right outside the car window.)
We also enjoyed this picture of a Bighorn Sheep.
At Mammoth Hot Springs we saw very tame ELK
Apparently there isn't a need for lawn mowers.
There were signs all over Mammoth that said "do not approach Elk"
AS IF!!! Sheesh!
Who needs a sign telling you not to when you have a husband
(I only had one altercation with the Forest Ranger when I tried to take the bear home. They get so cranky!)
It was so great to spend time together doing things that we both enjoyed. We love the mountains and the beautiful part of the country we are privileged to live near.
We enjoyed uninterrupted time.
Too soon it was done and we were on our way home.
To this view.
And just a few minutes later we were home.
I loved our Anniversary weekend.
I look forward to another 32 years together.
