Jul 14, 2018 - Headwaters of the Missouri River

Continuing our travels across the big sky country of Montana, we left Glacier to visit Yellowstone National Park. On our way to Yellowstone, we stopped at the Missouri Head Waters State Park to see one of the sites where the Lewis and Clark Expedition camped in 1805. The site also marks the confluence of three rivers that form the headwaters of the Missouri River: Gallatin, Madison and Jefferson Rivers. How could we pass this site after just visiting a great museum dedicated to the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1803-1808). It was fun to...

May 25, 2017 - day 7

We traveled to Yellowstone National Park. Saw an amazing group,of geysers as we were able to walk along a boardwalk that took us around the various sites. We saw a deer hiding in the woods and several Buffalo. One kept turning away from me until I finally got a picture of him. We camped in Camp Three Forks which turned out to be a very nice place. All sites were arranged to be pull through so parking and leaving would be easy.

Aug 28, 2015 - Headwaters of the Missouri River

Today, we decided to "launch the watercraft" at the Headwaters of the Missouri River, where the Gallatin, Madison and Jefferson Rivers converge to form the Missouri River, the second longest river system in the US. On this trip, we have already visited the headwaters of the Colorado, Yukon and Mississippi and have kayaked the Missouri River at two different locations. This was quite different. The river looked fairly placid so, we decided to paddle upstream toward the Madison and Gallatin rivers and then float back to the launch area....

Aug 27, 2015 - Three Forks, MT

2015-08-27-Three Forks, MT We drove from Missoula to Three Forks, Montana today; about 180 miles. Three Forks is near the confluence of three rivers (Madison, Gallatin and Jefferson) and the source of the Missouri River, the second longest river system in the country. The town itself is very small but they have a lovely old hotel, the Sacajawea. It is a town that produces talc, cement and composite plastics alongside the cattle ranches that dot the prairie. Today was, once again, smoky so, once again, we cannot see the Tetons and Rockies...

Nov 29, 2012 - Boondocked in a gravel parking area in Three Forks, MT

Boondocked in a gravel parking area in Three Forks, MT (45°53'57.56"N 111°32'2.20"W) for one night. This very beautiful, and quiet area has numerous asphalt biking/walking trails intertwined around the four (04) pristine Three Forks Ponds, and only a short walk to the Madison River. From our coach we can see the snow capped mountains out of both sides of the coach: the Bridger Mountains (north side) and the Tobacco Root Mountains (south side). Across the street is the beautiful, Headwaters Public Golf Course. A few miles away on the...

Sep 3, 2012 - I Think We Are Ready

I finally finished waxing the coach and getting her ready to hit the road. After being parked for four months there is a lot of housekeeping and organizing to do to get ready for an extended trip out to California. The trip schedule I have worked out will take us through about 18 states and 6,000 miles before we start our campground host duties at Bothe-Napa Valley State Park December 1st. Randi, her dog Champ and boyfriend Brett stopped by to say good bye, Randi was an intern here at the Park this summer and is working on going to the...

Aug 30, 2012 - Treated To A Cookout

Didn't have my camera with me yesterday so I went back this afternoon to take a picture of the beaver dam. Too my surprise they had built it a another few inches higher but now they have opened a gap in the center? Dave and Anne put on a cook out for Greg, Patti, Mary & Me this evening of BBQ chicken and grilled corn, plus everyone else brought a dish or desert.

Aug 29, 2012 - My Dam Is Working

The beaver finally filled in the gap of the dam they built, it looks like the dam I built is working to prevent our walking path from going under water again. There are now three fires burning around us plus all the smoke from the Idaho fires, visibility was less than a mile today even though the wind was blowing at 20-30MPH

Aug 28, 2012 - Fall Must Be On The Way

Another deer was hit down by the picnic grounds again last night, that makes four or five so far this summer. Finished redoing site #16, it will be interesting to see the campground looks like next spring after they get done with the gravel project. I seen a couple large flocks of Canadian geese flying overhead today, just another indicator that fall is on the way.

Aug 27, 2012 - Hair Color Anyone?

This weekend was surprisingly slow for Mary and Patti at the contact station but the campground has filled up each night. We both went into Three Forks to have Skip give us our hair cuts before leaving. After Mary gets her hair cut I put on my hair dressers hat to dye here hair. Spent a few hours clearing around site 16 to make it a little larger.

Aug 26, 2012 - Getting Starting

Yesterdays wind took down an 80' cotton wood tree next to the Fort Rock parking area so me and Greg spent a few hours cutting up and hauling off four pickup loads of limbs and branches. Finally quit procrastinating and got started at washing and waxing the coach, got the roof scrubbed down then washed and waxed the right side.

Aug 21, 2012 - Acupuncture?

I almost hit a deer this morning on my drive through the park, it was so close that I think her tail is couple of inches shorter. After dropping Mary off for her bingo game I seen Dr. Pascual the sleep doctor for a follow up visit, the oxygen generator seems to help because I seem to be sleeping good at night except for the fact that I get up every morning at 5AM no matter when I go to bed. I still have a tough time sitting still during the day from the restless body syndrome so she suggested acupuncture as a possible solution.
