What day is it?

Yes, it's kinda hard keeping up with the days.  The weather has been really nice, in the mid 40's to 50's at night and up to mid 80's late in the afternoon.  Only had rain one day.
We spent a quiet day celebrating our 35th anniversary.  Wow, 35 years?  And living the lifestyle of my dreams with my beautiful wife!  Can it get any better?
Then Cindy celebrated her birthday with some new friends here while we went out for pizza.
And we've been riding the Rzr.  A couple days ago we rode out to a local hot springs then up into the mountains and over to the headwaters of the Missouri river.  I stepped on two rocks with one foot in Montana and the other in Idaho with the beginnings of the Missouri river between my feet and could almost see the Gulf of Mexico.  I even thought I heard a river tug blowing its horn….
All in all it was a very nice day spent riding with new friends exploring the history of this area.

Today we rode out to Wallace lake.  Wow, what an absolutely beautiful and peaceful place.  There was a small campground there with a guy and his grand kids.  He said he has been coming here for 60 years!
The lake was so quiet and luckily the wind was barely blowing so that I was able to get some nice pictures showing the mountains reflected in the water.  We spent about an hour just enjoying the peace and quiet then drove on further.

We went looking for the abandoned town of Leesburg which supposedly has 40 old buildings.  Unfortunately after finding the road there was a fence across the road blocking us.  It looked like there was an area of reclaimed ground from an old mine and no way to get across it.  Oh well maybe another day.
