Hole In One

Yep, I got a hole in one on Saturday at Bridger Creek golf course in Bozeman, Montana. To be honest, I'm still a bit shocked about it. I hit a Callaway 3 ball that I'd found at another course a few weeks earlier with my 8 iron. It was Alex's birthday so at least I had a witness, and I'm glad that it was him. Now he just needs to get one and we'll be even. :)

Photo Friday

This week saw the Summer Solstice come and go, and I'm happy to say that with it came the summer weather that I have been so looking forward to. And also the occasional summer rainbow. This picture was taken last night with my cell phone. Not bad, eh? Those are the Bridger Mountains.
This past weekend I went to the first wedding in over three years, and I've still got two more to attend this summer.
The following photos are from June 12. I'm not sure why I didn't post last Friday; I guess I thought that I hadn't taken any pictures. They are from my little Sunday drive that turned into a 6 hour excursion to Yellowstone National Park. How many people can say that? I love Montana!

This past weekend found me having three days off again. It was a productive time off, with me finally getting my garden completed, dog bathed, and car cleaned. I also had a bachelorette party on Saturday; my first in nearly four years. It seems that I haven't been to a wedding since the fall of 2007, and all of a sudden this summer I have three to attend. I guess it goes in waves.

Sunday and Monday found me outdoors for most of the day, golfing and hiking. The first photo is up in Hyalite Canyon. I'm not sure of the name of this lake but I'm sure I'll be back soon.

This little guy was along the path to the M. He's really not as large as he looks, but he did have an attitude!

For most of the holiday weekend I was in Missoula catching up with an old Iowa friend. She now lives in Germany and brought back some authentic German beer (in a word, awesome) and some chocolate! We did some easy hikes around Missoula and met up with several of my friends for drinks and food. It was a nice visit back for me this time as I have recently been able to fully release myself from the sad memories that Missoula brings to mind.

On our last evening together, we happened upon David Boone playing at a brewery in Hamilton. I had the pleasure of hearing him at the Peace Festival in Arlee in 2009.

The next time I will see my old friend will probably be when I travel to Germany for a visit next spring. I already can't wait!
