Today we have the final odds and ends from our Montana road trip. Not all the things we see fit in their own post, so we put those all here for you today. This is a shot of me and Nelson at Bozeman Pass. We drove through here on the way to and from our nose work trials Saturday and Sunday. It is a beautiful place. Mom said even if our trial goes bad, the pretty drive makes it worthwhile.
I had me Elite Trial on Saturday at the fairgrounds and Bailie had her NW3 Trial on Sunday. My trial day was one hundred degrees out, but we survived.
The view of the mountains from the parking lot was gorgeous on Saturday. On Sunday the mountains disappeared in the smoke from all the forest fires.
My trial was fine, but it didn’t end up as good as we thought it would. Some new things happened that we didn’t know until everything was finished. I still earned a nice amount of points towards my next title and I earned a third place in my first search of the day.
Bailie’s day was typical Bailie. She did not feel like searching and it was a long tough day for her and Mom. Still, she enjoyed meeting all the people and getting lots of attention. There is a reason, actually more than one, that Bailie doesn’t travel for trials anymore. This photo was taken while she was waiting to do her exterior search.
Nelson went to the trial with Bailie. Mom took him for lots of little walks in between Bailie’s searches. They found these concrete barriers and thought they would make a funny photo. I got to stay at the hotel and rest with our navigator.
On the way out of town, they stopped by the big mural. I was not along on Sunday, but Nelson was. Because the mural is super long and on a busy street, Mom left Bailie and crossed the street to take the three photos. She doesn’t trust Nelson to stay put like Bailie will, so only Bailie is in the photo. Three photos are necessary to capture the full length.
The buffalo is on the left of the Bozeman part.
A grizzly bear is to the right of the Bozeman part.
Mom says this photo of me is rather funny. I definitely was not ready to get up for the day, but it was time. The explosion behind me is kind of humorous too.
Leaving Wyoming on the way home from Montana, Mom and our navigator stopped for some white water rafting. Thankfully, they had a photo taken so we could see what they had been up to. Next time we want to go along!
Our final photo stop was in Sturgis, the place where the motorcycles all meet up at the famous Motorcycle Rally. Since the event is in August, it is safe to stop. When it is going on the place is crazy! At this point, we were all pretty tired and it was almost one hundred degrees again. Nelson let his true feelings show! Hope you enjoyed our last odds and ends!
