We had dinner in Cooke city after we left the park then headed back to home. We got half way there and were greeted by crazy smoke wall. There had been a storm (actually passed over the ranch while they were trail riding) that caused lightning to start a fire. The smoke from this fire was eerie as the sun started setting. We are still getting quite a bit of smoke from the fire, as well as another fire started outside of Red Lodge, just a few miles from the Ski runs. Smells like a campfire pretty much all hours of the day around here.
One last day to fit another cowboy activity in. The families jumped in the car and headed to the rodeo(called radio by Max. He almost had it by the end of the night!). The night rodeo doesn't start til 8pm, already past bedtimes. It was a great time! We did leave a little early cause the children (and adults) were starting to get tired. The adults ended the evening with a bit of porch sitting. We had to finish off the bottle of wine-no sense in letting it go bad. We had a great time having the Andersons here and look forward to seeing them again at Thanksgiving.
