We have enjoyed our time in Livingston, MT for the last month, especially our time with Ty's brother and his wife Vicki. The wild flowers are in full bloom in the yards and all the mountain sides. The most common bird in our neighborhood was the Black-billed Magpie.

For one weekend, the whole family got together and it was great to see everyone and how much all their Grandkids have grown.

We went on rides in all directions from Livingston, exploring the mountain roads, wooded valleys, and checking out many trout streams for future fishing.
Ty and Daryl did go fishing on the free day along the Tom Minor creek and caught and released many Cutthroat Trout.

We did a 10 hour road trip through the northern roads of Yellowstone Park into Beartooth Pass. We saw lots of Am. Pronghorn Antelopes, Am. Bison, Deer and Elk along the way. We drove to "The Top of the World" at 10,947 foot altitude which is above tree line and all the magnificent rocks and flowers of the area.

Ty and Daryl went to the Shield's River to check out the fishing. And while Daryl caught a few fish, Ty caught some birds and wildlife with the camera. Including a young moose high-tailing into the woods.

Tomorrow, we head out northeast along the Canadian border heading back through the plains, Northern Minnesota and back into Wisconsin.
Love & Prayers,
Ty & Ida Baumann
