after our adventures in sun valley we headed up to montana for our annual hebgen lake visit.
it was a great time.
we did the usual.
boating, games, west yellowstone, dirt bikes, hiking, bikes rides.
we did the new.
mainly taking captain out for pony and cart rides.
something i love about these times is that i can choose to sleep in as late as i wish.
i love that.
but i had a goal this time around.
i wanted to watch the sunrise over the lake.
every day i told myself that the next morning would be the morning.
well, it never happened.
for a week and a half i slept in.
finally, on the last day that we were in montana i forced myself to wake up and make the trek to observation point, a few miles away from the ranch.
i was scared that bears were going to eat me as i climbed out of the truck in the dark of the woods. i was cold. i was tired. it was cloudy.
"great. i woke up and got here and now the clouds are going to stickin' block the sun."
i was sad.
then something happened.
i saw something.
now you can see it.
it makes it even better.
my friend the buffalo enjoyed the sunrise too.
the sun broke through. and the clouds made it even more beautiful than it would have been.
i will remember this morning for a long time.
it's special to me.
i hope you got a little glimpse of why.
