Montana Tours of 2005, Gun Lake, August

Eight days after we returned home from the Minnesota/Iowa Research Trip we were off again in Montana. In fact, we did not even unpack, just did the laundry, kept the food in the refrigerator and grabbed the gear we always need for the lake. Fishing poles and tackle, inner tubes to float on, beach chairs, boat, summer stuff!

We spent 15 days at the lake, boating, fishing, swimming, relaxing. NOW this is a vacation! Good friends, good weather, campfires, smores, not hot, not much rain, not cold, whew, doesn't get a whole lot better than this! Ice cream runs, taking the boat instead of the car. Even a sing-a-long around the campfire with our favorite guitar man - Larry.

Our sons came out and spent a weekend with us. What a special time that was!


Al sure had on the perfect shirt for a fish fry! Oh, the fish was fabulous!


Tilly the co-pilot. Helping Al drive!


From the back to the front, and left to right, Abby, Cappy (panting, hey, when do I get to go for a swim and cool off?), and Gallagher. While Tilly drives, they relax and enjoy the great summer weather.

Gun Lake surely is one of our favorite places to camp in the summer in Michigan. For those of you who do not know Michigan, it is located in Yankee Springs State Recreation area, just west of Hastings Michigan.
