A little piece of Heaven...

The cabin where we stayed

Karen and I had a great time doing the paddle boat until she almost fell in when she was getting out of the boat...good thing I'm strong and saved her from taking a little dip in the pond :)

This is the view from the deck of the cabin...I sat on the deck reading with this view surrounding me. It was such a peaceful place. They said that their is a bald eagle that hangs around in the trees by the pond...I guess doing a little fishing himself.

Inside the cabin where we stayed

I love this picture of Bridger and the guys...Bridger was just dieing to jump in a grab a fish.


Thursday we headed off to a little piece of heaven...The Box Y Ranch and Guest Lodge 28 miles up in the Bridger National Forest on the Greys River in Alpine, Wyoming. It was absolutely beautiful and so relaxing. So remote that there is no cell phone service, no internet...which meant Jeff truly got away from work for a few days. The guys fished, shot, played horseshoes and just did whatever. I went for walks and read and just enjoyed this peaceful time. But...the best part for me was that we just walked down to the lodge for our meals...the food was awesome and I didn't have to to think or worry about anything, they took care of everything. I had to walk to work off all the fabulous food they feed us.

We took our dog Bridger with us. He was truly in heaven. By the time we left this morning his poor paws were so sore from all his freedom of running.

Thanks to Dan, Holly and Shayne for inviting us and sharing this time together. We had a great time with you guys. It was hard to leave and to come back home to reality.

We're glad your back though. We missed seeing you guys. It looks like a wonderful getaway though. Glad you had some time to yourselves.
