wheatie reunion in montana

ashley and dustin came to visit for the week! dustin is in graduate school and had spring break, so they headed north. and west. and we’re glad they did. it was fun to show off northwest montana, which is not hard to do…

us three all lived on the same dorm floor freshman year; who would have thought that two of us would end up in montana and one in arkansas?!

of course one can't come to northwest montana without at least a day trip to glacier national park

and a day hike allowed me to try out my new day pack, whom i have affectionately named penelope (the purple pack).

unfortunately we didn't truly need our snowshoes because the snow was so packed down where we were. but we still had a good time.

and by fun i mean silliness

beautiful lake mcdonald

so many photo opportunities

even photo opportunities of photo opportunities

i introduced them to what has become sunday afternoon tradition for me: a walk and doggie play date at lake koocanusa! followed by lunch, of course.

me: "take your toothpick out for a picture." randy: "why?" too late.
