Day 368: Bitterroot Valley, Day 1

Shabbos here at Aunt Linda’s ranch was relaxing.  We went for a couple walks and watched the horses graze.

This morning, the kids took the paddleboat out on the pond:

Later in the day, Aunt Linda drove us up to a manned fire tower at the South end of the valley.  The watchman explained what he does and showed us around inside his watch tower, which is also his house six days of every week:

Being the highest structure for miles around, the watch tower has some pretty impressive grounding for lightning strikes:

Winds carry smoke from fires in Washington state into the valley, reducing visibility quite a bit:

Back at the ranch, the colt was taking a nap:

It’s really hot here, so I’m glad we have this Y adapter.  It allows us to bring two conventional household circuits into the RV’s 50 Amp, two circuit connector so we can run both air conditioners, one on each circuit:
