Well, my husband and I have talked about taking a trip back east for so many years that I can't even begin to explain how excited I am that today our dream has come true. This morning my husband and I left our home and cats in the hands of our children (who are grown), packed up the car, the dog, and some food and headed out to destination New York. Actually, New York has not been our dream but just going back east to see the sites, do some genealogy, and check out some of our church history locations has been the dream.
So this morning we left North Idaho and headed east. Our plan is to not have a real plan. We are winging it! We know what we want to see but the order we see it and how long we stay at each location will be a surprise to us. (Believe me, this is really a first for us.)
Here we are at night 1 of day 1. We started the day with rain then some light snow but we are not discouraged. Tonight we are in Sheridan, Wyoming and the weather is just fine. This is a cute little town. I was impressed with how clean it looks. We didn't get to see very much as it was starting to get dark when we arrived but what I saw was nice.
On our way here we stopped by Little Bighorn to check out Custer's last stand. Unfortunately, we got there a half hour too late. Instead we checked out a gift shop and I picked out some cards (and rocks) for the grand kids. The man at the shop was so nice. He was ready to close but let me come in and look around. He even told us about some places in Sheridan to eat dinner. As it was, I had brought some veggies and fruit and we chose to eat in the room tonight. I am sure we will get our share of eating out before this trip is over.
Here are our notes for Day 1.
Back to the Little Bighorn. I got these postcards. Since we didn't actually get to see the battlefield, these helped us to visualize what was there.
