Unfortunately, husband Dave couldn't come along, though he wanted to, because he already had business trips to San Diego, Washington DC and Seattle (in that order) during the same time I'd be gone. Here's what he missed:
Pretty Clark Reservoir. Where's my wetsuit?
Bison? Bull ... It was in the same spot on the return trip too.
Clark Fork showing me the way to Missoula.
A famous festival held July 30-August 3 this year. Darn, I would miss it ...
In Missoula, Clark Fork gets pretty big and goes right through town.
A closer look at the river after picking up my race packet at the expo nearby.
Guys trying to paddle UP rapids in short stubby kayaks. Man vs. Nature and Nature was usually winning.
The fish I caught on this trip. Really big ones, too.
Me and the kids who both tower over me so best to be sitting down. Last time I saw them was last Thanksgiving. Great to see them again!
Official Missoula Marathon race photos are now available and can be found here, if anyone is interested. Sorry, looks as if I took a Happy Pill that morning.
