Bannack State Park, Montana





"Bannack State Park", Montana. We stayed in the campground. No water. Only a pit toilet. So it was a one-nighter campground. I don't do well not taking shower when it is super hot during the day & you are sweating like a crazy person. If it had been hot at night the hubby said it would be cool to take a rinse off in the river there. It was super cold water. The last 2 shots are within the campground. When we made our trip to Montana 2013 this state park was closed due to flooding ...this river was the troublemaker. Hard to believe that just a small river could be so mean??! We made a point in 2014 to finally see this park apparently a lot of the old building were harm during the flooding. Mighty waters they are. Always be ready. Beth ( :

Hello Beth, the old buildings look like they could be a movie set. The river does look like it is moving fast, I am sure the water would be chilly too. With no running water back in the pioneer days people would be bathing in the rivers. Great shots, enjoy your day! And thanks for visiting my post.

neat old relics you found.

A pretty setting. The buildings remind me of a couple of historical interpretation places I've been to.

Beth, those old mining towns are fascinating, that they could have been so busy at one time and now sit so silent.
Not sure that I could cope with camping there. It looks really interesting though! xx

I would not do well without my shower and the comforts of a flush toilet. Great shots.

Another very interesting place you've taken us to visit. The river does look benign.

I'm not good with camping at all - So you have my respect.
You reminded me of a model friend from years ago - she would stomp her feet when some gentleman suggested camping and insist he "I want concrete under her feet, NOW - and let me tell you, I'm takin' a SHOWER, TONIGHT!!!"

you made me smile

This looks like a fun place to visit as long as 'the creek don't rise". Our cabin is by a river and it can do some shocking and amazing things if there is too much rain up in the mountains. I have seen our river rise 30 feet up out of its banks in an evening. so glad we are up on a ridge. I love montanna! Such a gorgeous state.

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
