I spent two weeks in Missoula, Montana. Its a college town, home to U of Montana. There are a few redeeming qualities, like the local breweries. I went to Draught Works and Tamarack Brewing. I had Bayern, Big Sky and Kettlehouse beers as well as Whitefish brewing from Whitefish, MT.
|My first day in town. There was snow on the ground all the time I was there.|
|Missoula - My hotel was the big rectangular one on the right.|
|Spokane, Riverside park. My hotel was the opposite side of the river and north about two blocks.|
All of that considered, it felt wonderful to not have to fly out again on Monday the fourth. I've been home a week and a half now and have happily settled back in to my routines. The pooch and cog (my cat who acts like a dog) are both very content that I am home, walking and spoiling, I mean feeding them again. I've been cooking up a storm. Chili, cornbread, banana bread, chicken, banana bites. It's nice to be able to make what I want, when I want it and not be limited to only a microwave and tiny fridge.
There really is no place like home!
