Weather – we had a couple of 100 days but the majority of the time the weather hasn’t been bad at all. And the nights cool down nicely.
We’ve also been very lucky that we didn’t get a lot of smoke until this last week. But it is definitely here now.
I took this picture in July of the road to the campground and the lake.
This one was taken a couple days ago.
We leave here on Saturday and head to Billings for a few days. It’ll be fun to see the kids again. I also have an eye appointment and the truck will go in for its yearly service work.
I have a few pictures of the pups that I want to post.
Our Rock Star.
This is Rocky fishing with Jim.
This is Skittlez NOT fishing with Jim.
We saw this rig in the Helena Walmart parking lot. It does have a current Montana license plate but boy is it scary to think it is on the road somewhere.
We are leaving with a freezer full of walleye and Wilcoxson’s fudgesicles. Jim has had a fantastic summer of catching and is looking forward to coming back again next year. Hopefully all those fish he threw back will have grown up and make for keepers next time.
It has been a rough summer with the pups. Skittlez is doing much better after her back problems. But her back legs will never be as strong as they were. They often given out on her as she’s walking but she’s still bouncy when it comes to food.
Rocky is having heart problems. We’ve got him on all the same medications that we gave Scooter and we’re hoping that they can keep him with us for a long time to come.
They both get very agitated if we leave them for very long, so we don’t go very far away without them. When we make the run into Helena for shopping, I usually sit in the truck with them while Jim goes in and does the shopping. It’s been too hot to leave them in the truck. And if I stay home with them, Rocky drives me crazy with his groaning for Jim.
That’s been our summer here at Canyon Ferry. Our spot will be waiting for us when we arrive next year.
