I has been tough not having Mika on the trip. However there was so much time spent driving,she would have hated it It appears that the bears treat family pets as food, and I did not want to lose her to a bear.
Maybe a shorter trip, say to Padre island would be good for Mika, and I could get more inspiration for my paintings. It is crazy, but there are no palm trees in Montana. Go figure!
1300 miles since yesterday morning. I am exhausted and hope to make it home soon, but it may not be until Thursday, late. Oh well, it has been a beautiful drive. We live in a great country.
