They Are Here

We were up early to start for the airport in Billings but not near as early as Rollie and Gina were up in Houston to get to the airport for their departure so as to arrive in Billings at 9:35AM, yes AM!   We were so glad to see them, Gina and I just hugged and hugged and shed a couple tears—it was just so good to see our friends.

And of course the Clarks had errands to run in the big city.  Mike and Rollie made a quick Harbor Freight stop and then we all made a 2 shopping cart stop at Costco.  We then wanted to take them to a local kind of restaurant for lunch but because it was Sunday—no dice—we had to settle for Famous Dave’s which was good even if it was a chain.

We retrieved the Emmi girl at Nat’s and came home to unload the massive Costco run.  After settling Rollie and Gina in the motorhome we all headed up to the local tourist attraction, Natural Bridge State Park.

I’ve blogged about Natural Bridge several times.  The entire Boulder River during most times of the year goes entirely through a hole in the bedrock shooting out into a deep pool. 

Gina and Rollie in front of the fallsThis photo was taken in August, 2010.  You can just see the river in the middle top of the photo.

In times of high water the entire Boulder River spills over and through various holes of the “natural bridge” forming a spectacular falls.IMG_7483 Quite the change isn’t it??  The sound of the falls is amazing, you can feel the spray—a totally different change of scenery.
