Cooke City, Montana, after the rain

We had our road trip and were witness to things of nature, Lewis and Clarke and Sacajawea, sunrises and sunsets, a lot of steak and huckleberry eating, trading post stops, the magnificence found in the mountains and big sky and looking closely at little things, a relative re-visited and of course car music, picture snapping, good conversation and togetherness.

I know I'm home because I just bought a new phone (the old one broke the second day in Wyoming) and still haven't checked my email, a thousand letters long. Vanessa is off duty I am back in the Bonbon driver's seat. Can I get just one more day?
