Tod and I took a journey through Washington, Idaho and Montana.
Puget Sound from the ferry to West Seattle.
Dick and Jane's folk art environment, which we stumbled across in Ellensburg, Washington.
A window in Missoula, Montana.
A mysterious sign in strip-mall Missoula.
Garnet ghost town, between Missoula and Great Falls.
When this Montana state trooper gave us a $20 speeding ticket, he said to T "hey, I think I just gave your dad a ticket!" It was true. Jerry's ticket was bigger.
Prelude to a Shriners parade in Great Falls, Montana.
My sister in law Wendy and nephew Clay at a unique Great Falls business.
The beautiful bride, our niece Kelsey, and Ty, her excellent groom. They were the reason for our trip.
At the wedding. The groom is from a large, catholic ranching family, and over 300 people came. There was a lot of praying and red meat.
Piano Pat plays Ring of Fire at the best bar in the world, the Sip N Dip in Great Falls. Note the Shriner in the background.
A mermaid entertains the patrons from the swimming pool behind the bar. The Sip N Dip alone justifies a trip to Great Falls.
