I'm back online tonight outside Rockford, IL, after living a week which seems like an eternity. A week ago today, we had decided to stay an extra day in Gardiner, MT to raft the Yellowstone River.
12-hour day in Yellowstone Park. I could not take my eyes off that beautiful river, sunshine glinting on it as it flowed so clearly and quickly by with hayfield, mountains, and bright blue sky as it's backdrop.
It was all over way too soon.
We're always thrilled when we come across super role models for our sons. Kaleb was especially inspired, and has dreams of being a rafting guide. His "Yellowstone River Swim Team" bracelet has not left his wrist once yet.
What an all-around incredible day. It was the kind you just want to linger in and not have to let go. At least, we were able to close it out camped again by the edge of this gorgeous river. I sure hope it's not the last time I laid eyes on it.
