Snowbowl facts:  Base Elevation-5000ft,  Top Elevation-7600ft. Vertical drop 2600 ft.
Average annual snow of 300 inches. Longest ski run of 3 miles.
Summer stuff, lots of Mountain Bike trails, FOLF ( frisbee golf), The last run resort, (beer, wine, food, and a great atmosphere.
So summer and winter lots to do and see.

Drove up to Snowbowl today, A beautiful, dusty drive. Seeing the ski slopes even without snow brought back lots of good memories of my days when I did ski. I had to take the chairlift to the top just to see the view from up there.
This is the view as you start back down the chairlift, what a great ride.

I can only imagine the thrill of navigating the way down the mountain with ski's strapped to your feet. Alas I think my skiing days are over. To many creaks, aches and pains without skiing.

Here I am again way past due for an update, I am enjoying working here at Missoula KOA, everyone I am working with is super nice, which really helps make the job fun.

Aunt Leilani and cousin Camda came over for a couple of days. We had a great visit, it is always nice to see them. We drove down to Hamilton and toured the Daley Mansion. This was built by Marcus Daley one of the copper Kings.

I wish we could have taken pictures inside, but it was not allowed, It is well worth visiting if you are in the area. It was a beautiful day and an enjoyable tour.
The next day Camda and I went to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation located here in Missoula and enjoyed all the information and mounts, they have a beautiful building full of mounts to enjoy.

 The 2 days of visiting went way to fast and we had to say goodbye as they headed back home. Thanks for coming to visit we really enjoyed it.

The following week we drove up to Polson, met our dear friend Jesse at the Pizza cafe in Ronan for lunch. It was such a great lunch, we were happy that it was still the same as we remembered it.
After lunch we stopped at Polson KOA and visited with Paul and Carlisa for short time, it was good to see them and we had a great visit. Then we went up the hill to Jesse's house and visited until way past time to head back to Missoula, It was a really fun day and hope we can do it again before we leave.

That's all for now folks, hope you are all well and God Bless.
