On to Montana

The longest car ride of my life. I understand that I’m going to break my personal record very soon on the way back. We didn’t have time to stop for much, but just for Sweet William, we actually tried to get a picture of the Salt Lake, it really didn’t work out but here’s the best attempt


You can (maybe) see the lake beyond the greenery. We’ll be better on the way back but we couldn’t disappoint SWTS, who has a surprise coming up before then.  It was next to Idaho and the scenery was all the same, potato fields. Idaho prides itself on potatoes. Here’s a potato field for the curious

SAM_0727So what does He order for lunch in Idaho-where even the license plate proclaim “Famous Potatoes”? Onion rings, of course. He can get fresh potatoes for French fries and He wants onions. I’d expect nothing less from Him. He’s the type that would go to a fine restaurant in Paris and order a bottle of California wine because His father told Him that imported wine was better.

Then on to Montana. Just outside of Butte, there is a statue called “Our Lady of the Rockies”.  The point of interest here is that it is the second tallest statue in the USA after the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor.

SAM_0734Lady_3-218x314It’s dedicated to all women-especially mothers. I protest! I’m a spayed female and I had no choice in the fact that I can’t be a mother. It should also be dedicated to us! Pets of the world-unite!

  1. See I stayed up waiting for you to post Kyla, you are late tonight. Yep I believe I can see Salt Lake, I believe I can. Our Lady of the Rockies looks laminated against the sky. Now we are having a vacation.

  3. Are you guys enjoying the car ride? I don’t think I (or the peeps) would cope being stuck in the car with Floyd!

  4. Bwahaahaa! Onion rings! Our Grandpa went to Maine and just wanted a lobster and a beer. Ended up in a dry town, so he had a pork chop!

    That’s a lot of riding in the car. Don’t know how we’d go.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  5. Totally with you there Kyla. I was robbed of Motherhood too. BOL You should play eye spy in the car so you don’t get bored. xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  6. Tell us Kyla, do you and Kaci sing songs in the car? What do you do to keep yourselves occupied?

    • There’s a great comedy team up front (Him and Her-have your heard of them?. Just listen to them talk and you laugh and wonder what They’ll come up with next.

  7. Another part of our wonderful country. Oh Barharhar Onion Rings, you getting enough food, water gotta keep up the energy with all that car riding stuff. Thanks for the Pic of “Our Lady of the Rockies” never heard of Her.

    The Mad Scots

    Pees: Hope your on good highways and NOT going through here, cause all our roads are terrible, stay away if you like your car!

    • There have been good stretches of road and some no-so-good. We’re not going any further east but will go to Glacier Nat’l Park which is still North.

  8. I cann see the lake! Thanks for inviting me to a wonderful trip through your country, Kyla. maybe to order californian wine is a good idea, because we have problems with the asian lady beetle :o)

  9. I think the statue applies to you just fine. Yes I do. You’re still a female so that counts.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to your humans. 🙂
