Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Well we have our green on. Hard to believe from this picture, but it was snowing like crazy just a few minutes before we took the picture.

Before we are off on one last otter search we have to get Janet a YNP car sticker. While shopping we found this Nativity set. A must have for any mountain home. Bonus points if you can find Joseph.

Off to find the otter. Hey look a coyote. In all we saw three on them while otter hunting.

I think I am offended.  This buffalo is mocking my southern heritage with a piece of straw hanging out of his mouth,  Maybe I spoke too soon and he is a southern transplant like me? He didn’t say one way or the other.

Found the perfect otter spot……but alas no otter.

On the ride back we saw a moose much closer than last time. I think I scared Janet a little. She was driving and when I saw the mouse I just shouted MOOSE!

Well no otter. We also didn’t find a leprechaun, a rainbow or a pot of gold, but I had already found my treasure … Janet.

We went to dinner at the Rusty Rail and gorged ourselves on fried foods. It was a good day and a nice end to Janet’s trip. She will  me missed by every fiber of me.

Headed to Cooke City – The door has the final say

The driver door has been getting harder and harder to open. With the cold and my yanking it finally gave up the ghost. I was left standing with the broken door handle in my hand.

So now to open the door, you unlock it and then go to the passenger side and reach over or you can hold the key in the unlock position and it will roll down all the windows at the same time allowing you to reach in the window and open the door. These are both nice options when it is snowing like crazy.

Saw some moose. Very cool as they are hard to find.

Cooke City is like another planet.

Saw a fox on the drive home.
