We’ve had several sets of visitors to our new little homestead over the past couple of weeks. My college roommate stopped by for a night, and it was great to catch up. Mr. Gecko’s friends stopped by, and it was lovely to meet them IRL. Their little son ran around with Sugar, stole her Kong, and sat in her water fountain, making us all laugh.

Mr. Gecko’s parents stopped by, too, and stayed for a week. The weather was amazing while they were here.

The valley floor here has large dips left over from the glaciers.

I took them out looking for moose and bear one evening. We did not find a bear, but we did stop and look way off into the bushes for this moose.DSC_0091On the way home, this moose ran across the road in front of us, so they got a much closer look.
