Farewell Fireflies

Hello prairie dogs and bison and long horned cattle. And of course, many many many signs for Wall Drug. If you have never been and you are in the neighborhood, you should stop once. You have never seen such a collection of STUFF. I was just over whelmed. We didn't stop this time. We spent the day bouncing and buffeting (it's really windy) across the state on I-90. We've seen acres of grassland, jumbo rolls of hay littered about the fields, miles of sunflowers with their heads tipped over nearly ready for harvest. Lots of Harley riders headed home from Milwaukee; in fact quite a bit of traffic.... diesel was down to $4.01 a gallon this morning-heck, they're nearly giving it away right?

Yesterday we were in t-shirts, shorts and flip flops and it was about 90. Today we are in long pants, shoes, sweatshirts and the mountain time zone. Sort of metaphorically driving into autumn hu?

This weekend should be in the upper 70s around Moses Lake, so summer isn't quite over - you have to cross the Cascades for that.
