After missing the deadline by 10 years and being hounded to death by various healthcare providers I gave up and had my first and only colonoscopy Thurday. First and only!
We’ve had some beautiful fall days lately and today was too lovely to stay indoors. We loaded Emmi and ourselves into the truck heading toward Fishtail and Nye, Montana. We were a little early for fall color but the scenery still takes your breath away!
In Fishtail, Montana—don’t blink, you will miss it—there is a restaurant called The Cowboy Bar. Today we enjoyed one of the best meals ever—both of us ordered the prime rib sandwich. When the waitress brought the meals we were amazed—a huge slab of beef on each plate with homemade french fries—the meat was fork tender and delicious! Well worth the whopping price of $11 they charged for the sandwich!!!!
After lunch we headed out the road to Mystic Lake which is located in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness accessible only by foot or horseback. There are two other lakes before reaching the end of the driveable road—Emerald and West Rosebud. Huge mountains iced in snow, mountain lakes, a hint of fall color and 60 degrees equals a perfect day!
On the way home through the town of Absaroka the homecoming parade was in progress—not sure why those girls were on the sidewalk with their horses but they sure were taking a lot of ribbing from the football guys on the floats.
A perfect day!
