8 Weeks in Missoula!

I think this officially makes us snowbirds.  We're evacuating Florida for the next two months and escaping what is pretty much a big hot humid mess for the worst two months of August and September.  Our new temporary home is in Missoula, Montana.  A nice little cabin just a few minutes from town but secluded enough to feel like we're far enough away.  After 2900 miles across the country we made it, barely.  It was a pretty boring drive and unfortunately it was dark as we finally arrived in west South Dakota where the scenery starts become more than just corn.  However, we made it safely and our place in Missoula is fantastic!

Only a couple days in and we've already experienced a couple of cool hikes.  Short hikes, but beautiful none the less.  A quick jaunt into the Rattlesnake area just outside of Missoula and a couple miles into the Bitterroots about an hour south of town.  Both were wonderful.  Then again, I think we're just happy to be out of the humidity!  I don't know who's more excited:  us or the dogs?
