Sometimes you just need a change of scenery so we headed out west to visit friends Mel and Cathy in Big Sky, Montana.
We took a late afternoon tour of the Badlands which seemed like a different planet.

Bears are taken seriously in this area. Our first night here Mel told us how to protect ourselves while hiking, enough so that Mike and I each had bear nightmares our first night...
And we still enjoyed the great outdoors...
