As you know by now, I get up early. So today I took advantage of that fact and headed out just after dawn to go back to Two Medicine. It was a beautiful morning. Nice clouds.
There is a train that goes by the campground, but its just far enough away that I kinda like it. The one this morning was a double-decker!
On the drive in I saw a sign saying Watch for Stock. Now I see why.
Well, my plan worked. I got to Two Medicine at about 7:30. No crowds… Glad to see the ranger station open. Now I can tell Sam I got another stamp in my National Parks' Passport book. Had a nice chat with the ranger. And he even knew the NF trails near my campground (where I can take T) and told me how to find them.
I drove around the picnic area and then down to the lake again, scoping out the best spot to park Mac and spend some time with a mountain. I ended up liking the looks of Rising Wolf Mountain in the Morning light, so we parked with a view of it.
Theo got out and checked things out. Had his moment of Zen…
I sat and watched for a couple hours. Feel much better about it. Think tomorrow I'll come even earlier and have my coffee there. The ranger said its always open… I was wanting to sketch and only have a tiny sketchbook, so I decided to play around with one of the sketch programs on my tablet…its a start!
