Sawtelle Peak

Saturday night the park help a potluck. Lots of good food. After dinner we stayed in the clubhouse to play cards. I lost!

Sunday afternoon it was a bit windy, with a few showers so we headed back to the clubhouse to play cards again.

Monday Kevin and I headed out early to go to Rexburg. I needed some allergy medicine and grocery’s.  We stopped at Joe’s Filling Station for breakfast.  It was a rainy and cool day. Donna & Keith had gone off for the day and the others were housebound for the day.

This morning, Kevin did some cleaning on Keith and Donna’s beautiful new home.. I sat around outside chatting with Keith & Donna. We all decided to head up to Sawtell Peak..

It is 10000 ft above sea level, and looks down on three states, as well as Yellowstone NP and the Teton’s..

It was a bit cloudy and hazy today, but we sure did appreciate the beauty…

We got a glimpse of this deer, but he wouldn’t cooperate for a good picture.


Felt like we were on top of the world…DSC_0029
