The boys weekend this year was in Duluth. We stayed near Canal Park and saw the liftbridge in action a number of times. It was another chance for some golf, bowling, kicking back and enjoying a little guy time.

We made our way down to Carlton Days for good old small town celebration. Silk, Der and Kent found the beer tent.

The lift bridge was a sight with the full moon in the background.

Brynja got a chance to shoot a number of guns while in Montana. Here she is with a Colt 45.
Remember the line: God made man, Samuel Colt made them euqual.

All 12 of us got on a raft and made it down the Yellowstone River.

We went for a wonderful trail ride on horseback and found a nice spot to stop for lunch.

This rock provided many photo opportunities with an amazing background
looking over a valley and onto the mountain in the distance.

A group of us went to see Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park.
Guess what? The geyser erupted just as expected.

The girls had a great time shooting guns and couldn't resist an opportunity to pose.

Neither could I.

I forced Brynja to pose for a picture in front of the cabin.

Brynja and Elizabeth will miss each other next year when they get to college.

On the drive home from Montana Brynja reluctantly allowed me to visit the site of Custer's Last Stand. I pulled off the highway and asked, "Brynja, guess where's we're going?" She replied with enthusiasm, "A battlefield.....uhhhhhhh." This is the very spot where General George Custer met his demise.

Devil's Tower was a bit more her style. She enjoyed climbing around on the rocks at its base.
