Last night at the campground was really interesting! After dark someone called out for help and 911. Pretty soon an ambulance showed up about 30 yards from us. It didn’t have its sirens on but there was lots of activity for about two hours. I thought it would be fun to try to go look, so I tried to get through the screens over the windows. Mom caught me and by then it was cool enough so she closed the windows most of the way. Darn! We finally got to sleep about 1am.
I did better in the car today; slept more and didn’t complain as much. Tonight we are in a cabin and I’m very talkative; meow meow meow. I want attention and to be played with. That helps but then I go hide behind the toilet or in the shower. I have noticed another cat roaming around outside so that should be fun to watch after dark!
Ari please! I need a good night’s sleep! At least there is an air conditioner in the cabin so that will hide any outside noise.
This morning, I talked to the people in the tent next to mine (nice family) about the events of the night and they said someone was climbing on the steep bluff right above the campground after dark and fell about 15 feet. Thus the need for EMTs and the time it took to carefully move the person down. Seemed to have kept a lot of people awake 🙄
I stopped and saw my friend, Jane in Missoula for lunch today. I got an extra bonus since Karin (whom I also know) from St. Paul was visiting Jane! It was really good to catch up on our lives since we haven’t seen each other for many years. Jane bought me a delicious lunch at Five on Black (I forgot to take a photo). It has an interesting history http://www.fiveonblack.com/story. And I got a much needed iced latte at Liquid Planet for the road.
On our drive, I saw this big tower in the distance and low and behold at a rest stop there was an explanation. The tower is taller than the Washington monument.

Hi Annie–What a challenging night at the campground! Glad you got an explanation the next morning, and especially glad you got a cabin with AC the next night. Sounds great to meet up with two friends for lunch and coffee–thank God for companionship along the way!
Blessings on your journey, dear friend–
p.s. Carrie and Ethel are the first names of my two grandmothers, fyi
There is more to the story…that ties strongly to the Hungarian horses I bred.
