They missed the memo

Back from our road trip to Idaho/Wyoming/Montana, where it appears--as evidenced here--word has not yet reached them that Spring has begun. We traveled some absolutely gorgeous country, from Jackson, Wyoming through West Yellowstone and Bozeman, Montana. If you've never been to that part of the world, I highly recommend putting it on your list. And if you're not a winter person, I highly recommend it sometime June through October.

A small fraction of the elk currently on the National Elk Refuge at Jackson, Wyoming.

Along the Gros Ventre River, just outside Jackson.

Limited visibility (no kidding!) on our way through Island Park, Idaho. Consequently, I have no idea what Island Park looks like...

Rolling clouds along the rolling hills in Northeastern Idaho, during our one day of blue sky. Loved this shot.

Lucky for me, I have a husband who likes to drive so I was able to spend the better part of 2,00o miles doing this:

Beginning stages of the Cables and O's Cardigan.

I wish I were a faster knitter, but I have to sacrifice speed for accuracy at this point. My goal is to get this done by end of April...I'll keep you posted.


  1. It took my breath away. What a beautiful scenic drive. Someday...

    And beautiful cable work. The sweater-to-be is transforming gorgeously.

  2. Wonderful shots and knitting! You've way surpassed the teacher...

  3. Thanks! But it's hardly likely I'll ever get that far...

  4. I want you to know you've just returned from my favorite place in the world! Kids and I have spent a ton of summer times in that area! I am so jealous!!!

  5. That's great to know, Julie! We are definitely planning a return trip during summer in the next couple of years.
