Helena, MT High 87 Low 53
Take a look at this picture that Jim took of the sunrise over Canyon Ferry Lake this morning.
We will be leaving our spot here in Helena on Tuesday. We always try to stay here until after the long Labor Day week-end. Now that school has started, it will much easier to find campgrounds that have sites available.
When we leave here we’re headed back to Billings. All of us, including the girls, have doctor appointments scheduled. The truck also needs to go in for its annual checkup. That will give us a chance to spend a little more time with Todd and Michaela before heading south.
Once we’re ready to leave Billings we’re headed for the Bitterroot Valley and Hamilton, MT. Those are the only definite plans we have. But we sort of plan on going down Highway 93 to Twin Falls, ID and then into NV. We’re going to head west to Reno (if the smoke clears up) and then drop down to Hawthorne.
Our good friends, Sharon and George, live at Walker Lake, NV which is near Hawthorne. Sharon is the breast cancer survivor who organized the Death Valley Cancer Walks that we worked on for a couple of years. She just found out a couple of weeks ago that her cancer is back and is preparing for surgery. We really want to visit with them for a couple of days.
After leaving them we’ll go on down to Las Vegas to visit our good friends who live there. We plan on being back in Apache Junction October 10 and Jim’s first doctor appointment is October 15.
Anyhow – that’s kind of the plan for now. All subject to change at any time.
