Some friends, the Wife and I went on a 40 mile Quad ride yesterday West of Twin Bridges MT, there is an mining district dating back to 1863, there was a town named Rochester, nothing left but some rock walls and foundations. Guess there were around 5000 hardy soles in the area, none now though that you can see anyway. Saw lots of interesting old mines and prospect holes, lots of great views, on one ridge you can see the Mountains of the Yellowstone Park and the Grand Tetons of Wy from one spot. Saw 3 Bighorn Rams, got some good pics and tried to get them on here in a slide show, but didn't get that figured out yet. Still working on it. Tomorrow we're leaving Belgrade, going to spend 1 night in Livingston and then going to Lewistown to get the Wagon out and ready for the summer.

Nice sunny day in Montana, was thinking about washing the Rig but we're on the road again Tue and Wed and guess what,RAIN, so whats the use,just get dirty again.Guess we're going over to Butte tomorrow to get some skins for the Quad,needs them bad. Going on a ride Sunday with Rose and Ron over south of Butte. While in Butte will hit the junk shops to see what we can use on the Wagon, don't need much, looking for 1 or 2 16" or 20" Dutch Ovens.

We,re in Belgrade now,came over yesterday. Spent 4 days in Shepherd with a couple Daughters and the Grandkids. Aunt Karrie gave Tristen (age 7) a 2 year old filly and we got her started, got about 6 rides on her in the 4 days. Tristen named her Peaches and she is going to be his rope horse. His mom and him rode her yesterday and today and got along good. Had a great time with the rest of the kids and really enjoyed them.
