Caught in a time warp
This has been a very odd week or two. We are starting to feel like we are in a time warp or something. Our stay at the lake started out wonderful. A nice lake, in a nice place. Quite, pretty sunsets, swimming, all the good things.
Then Friday we woke to a giant hatch of mutant bugs. Like a bajillion of them. Thankfully they don’t bite, that would have been really bad as I react horribly to bug bites. They cling to the shade side of the RV, begging to get in. And quite a few do get in. Yuck.
That morning we braved the bugs and walked to an old cemetery. It was an odd mix of very old, and new headstones. There were some from the late 1800’s. There was also a fairly large headstone with a chain fence around it. The ornamentation on the fence was very cool. I would love to know if these were strictly ornamental, or did they have a certain purpose.
The previous night we went exploring a small homestead that was just up the road. We always wonder, who lived here, what was their life like, when exactly did they live here.
And it pays to be observant I guess. I was walking the dogs down the dirt road, and glanced toward the barbed wire fence. This heart caught my eye.
Saturday was really hot, even more bugs, and we were hardly able to be outside. Yesterday we moved on to an RV park in Three Forks. I tried to see if we could just go to Bozeman but the RV park doesn’t have room until Wednesday. When it gets really hot, boondocking can be hard unless you can get under a tree or something. The heat can be unbearable, with no power there is no A/C.
We are seeing more of Montana than we intended. I am still withholding final judgement until after the Bozeman art show this weekend. But I will say, we are pretty done with being here.
