DAY 2…. SPOKANE TO MISSOULA….

Greetings and Salutations….

This is day two and while I have not done much but ride in the car….I am incredibly sleepy, however I have had less alcohol tonight so we can hope that I will do a better job of editing…the real problem is my glasses don’t work…lol so I really can’t see the screen that well … still it was a lovely day and I do have a few fun things for you…..

I think I may have told you that we spent some time in Spokane last year ( which SIRI pronounces SPO CANE….LMAO) and when I was here I found a great art supply store and because one can never have too many art supplies my sweet baboo took me back over to it this am before we left town… this is the outside of the art building… I like to pretend that its me… making art..lol

Shortly after leaving the city of SPOKANE you find yourself approaching Coeur d’ Alene…( pronounced Cour de lain). But we are not French…lol. It’s a huge lake and very beautiful to drive along..

Then we come to more  images of the variety of landscapes that are this part of Eastern Washington.  It’s just lovely , however , I now know why my sister and brother in law do not drive on the freeways very often but tend to take the back roads….It’s very hard to take good photos when you are flying by the scenes at 70 miles an hour and that is the speed limit and just when you think you have the photo lined up a huge truck goes wizzing by… It’s fun but also frustrating….. you just can’t yell STOP when your hubby is driving 70 miles and hour… He’s good but that’s a no no…

 

 

Amazing bald rock just pops up out of no where trees all around then suddenly its bare…and smooth

Or rough and craggy

one of my favorite parts today was the area around Kellog I think where there is and Gondola and guess they are getting it ready for ski season.. in any case this poor man was having to climb STRAIGHT up with so much crud hanging off of him I wanted to suggest he get a cherry picker…

The climber with all the STUFF.. who knows what just hanging off of him..

I had to put this in as it just cracked me up…listed as a historical marker…

More lovely trees these are pines and they are just so crisp and very tall.

More bare rock that just doesn’t look like it belongs there..

A brief bathroom stop at Mickey D’s and an incredibly large bug ( nope don’t know what kind and good that he was on the outside not the inside…

This is the inside of what can only be referred to as a sh—t shop full of souvenirs…well that’s what they call them but this one also had $50,000 dollars worth of silver dollars hanging on the walls and over head of their bar….it was just a hoot.. no they did not give out any or even have any to purchase as souvenirs..lol but it was fulll of stuff and I did get a couple of postcards.

And look a wee bit of fall ya’ll ( that’s for my Southern friends who haven’t see fall in years)


This is my favorite image of the day…. and we were going much slower so I was able after the 3 or 4 one we saw to capture it… I think it means rock and roll truck…lmao…

I am afraid that this post is rather boring and some of you might not come back… but if you have ever wanted Julie and Julia ( movie) Julie decides she is going to cook all of JULIA’s recipes and then blog about each night…. I loved that movie but now I also know why she found it so hard to both do the cooking and then blog till the wee hours… If you haven’t seen it ,rent it…its worth your time… and perhaps you will have more sympathy for me and continue to stay with me… tomorrow is GARDINER and the northern entrance to Yellowstone and if we are luck some of the elk will be lying around the Ranger station and we of course get to see Mammoth hot spring…so hang in there the photos will get better I promise…

Oh and BTW …. I have hired a proofreader so any mistakes with this post are due to Mr HARNEY.. LOL

SO TTFN  ( that’s TA TA FOR NOW ) for all you Tigger fans… ( I decided that the blog need a new sign off) ole traveling shoes  IN MISSOULA MT……aka kath
