89°F ClearWind: N at 7 mph Humidity: 33%
Today 98° 73°
Tue 98° 74°
Wed 98° 70°
Thu 98° 69°
That's right! Thursday morning when I go to the squadron's exercise, it could be less than 70 degrees for the first time since we've been here! Just wait till we go camping on Friday up at some altitude--I could actually be outside and not be sweating! Oh, I think I'm going to like the winter.

The long rumored goat packing trip was a riot. I can't imagine a better distraction for hiking with children than a few goats. Rachel, our 4 year old, walked the entire 6 miles to Amethyst Basin. It was amazing. And having the goats help to carry all of that stuff was a great bonus.
Here are a few highlights of the trip:
We love doing things with the Sabeys. Mark and the boys are constantly thinking of ways to make everything more exciting. For instance, on our hike down the mountain, they decided we should each pick a goat who we thought would be leading the goat pack most of the way to the trailhead. They awarded points to a goat and his pickers each time he crossed a stream as the lead goat. Of course along the way there were whimsically heated discussions about the minimum requirements for a "stream", bantering when a goat would pass, and cheering for their favorite goat. Lisa tries to fulfull her divine role as family safety monitor, but has had some setbacks recently as Cubby broke both his wrist and his opposite elbow. Rachel Sabey is so sweet with the girls. They love being dressed up and made up when they see her. And now the princess book she gave them is a highlight.

I just realized you can't read the image too well. Basically the run was a 2200 ft climb for 5 miles from 5800 feet to 8000 feet. I now have a new documented maximal heart rate of 201 (which Carol pointed out I achieved before I even reached the first hill.)

Bryce and Karen, that is a car parked in the garage. Cars are four wheeled vehicles that the rest of America uses for transportation. Perhaps we can discuss the more complicated idea of a garage if you call sometime.

(Pictures coming soon)
After I wiped out going over this little ledge into the deceptively soft sand below, I decided to pull out my camera and watch the rest of the group come over this spot. You might call it entrapment, but I think of it as opportunity. . . .

Here is my best attempt to create a map of what it would require to make a round trip from West Yellowstone to Mesa Falls.
