Fil has been on many adventures over the last few years but I have been very bad at writing about what he has been up too. That is about to change!

At the very end of August, Fil went on a road trip. My husband and I packed up his camping equipment and headed out on the road towards Theodore Roosevelt National Park, near Medora North Dakota.  We arrived in the evening and didn’t get a very nice camping spot. It was right next to the garbage, but we didn’t mind because this place was beautiful! One of Fil’s favorite things to do is camp under the stars in his cozy tent under blankets and a sleeping bag. Something we’ve been doing a lot the last couple of years, so Fil is no amateur when it comes to camping.

As the sun was sitting we saw a mom bison and a baby along the road. Fil couldn’t believe his eyes, an animal much larger than himself? He was scared and stayed in the car. No way was he going to go near those big animals eating grass.

We moved on and stopped on top one of the bluffs to view the setting sun. The dancing colors of pinks and greens and golds from the setting sun were so beautiful that Fil wanted to pose on a lonely bench and soak in all the glorious colors. Soon the sun was behind the earth’s horizon and it got dark and we had to head back to our camping site and curl up for the night, admiring the stars of the Milky Way and dozing off, dreaming about more adventures to come.
