Well this past weekend took the cake for crummy weather. Rain and highs in the 40's are about as bad as it gets this time of year. As bad as it is for us we feel bad for the people who are camping in tents and on their vacation. One guy asked me when they moved Mt Rushmore-? They couldn't see it through the fog. Just like things usually go on Monday the sun was shining and it was up in the 60s.
So with the sun energizing us we took a drive on the wildlife loop marveling at the vibrant green colors the rain has provided.
This was another chance to use the VIP passes and do something we hadn't done last year. They loaded us up in wagons pulled by pickups each with a guitar player leading us in song. Our leader was a fourth grade teacher who has actually recorded CDs of cowboy and fun music for kids. He played some well known songs for sing along and mixed in some of his own funny songs.
After rolling along and seeing plenty of wildlife for about a good hour we arrived at Parker Canyon
where we had our steak chuckwagon dinner while being entertained by the quartet of musicians from the wagons.
Oh and stay tuned for the big news next week.)
