Nephew comes to Montana
Our nephew, Zach Teegardin spent 9 days with us in June. In that short time he saw alot. However, he noted immediately the lack of vehicle traffic on the roads. This is not Ohio. On the way to the Woodbine trailhead, Zach spotted a deer with her young fawn, we stopped for a bunch of pictures. We hiked into Woodbine something that every guest has done for over 15 years, but every time I looked for Zach, he had climbed into the rocks, he wasn't hiding, he just liked the rocks. Yellowstone National Park, Old Faithful, wildlife and Zack took at least 250 more pictures. We departed via the scenic Beartooth Highway and Zach was impressed by the amount of snow and the altitude. You see him at 2 miles, elevation 10560 feet, standing in the snow about to throw a snowball at the host and photographer. Of course there was fishing. His other favorites were riding the John Deere Gator, our 2 Great Danes, and the horses. Rumor has it, Zach is planning another trip out west next year.
