Oct 1- Arrive at Pierce’s


IMG_1149  The next morning it was already time to hit the road.  Our next stop was Bozeman to visit Ken and Linda Pierce.  They own Epic’s brother Banjo.

I had a number of purchases to make before we left town.  I got each of the poodles a nice hunting coat, ordered new glasses and picked up chains for the car.  At this point I’m afraid the car might explode.

Finally ‘really’ got going at 2:32. As you can see the weather was great and I had plenty of fuel for the trip.

It wasn’t far out of Helena when the topography started to change, but more impressive was the obvious threat of a change in weather.

I had planned to travel through Bozeman on the way to Yellow Stone National Park.  Unfortunately, with the Government Close, the park was no longer an option.

Late that evening, The 4 poodles and I arrived at the Pierce’s.

It was a wonderful sight to see Linda, Ken and Banjo.  In no time we were enjoying a fantastic dinner of seafood pasta and crisp white wine.   I retired (quite tired) to their down stairs bedroom to find a bed thick with wool blankets and a lofty down comforter.
