First, and it pains me to say it, we've cancelled our trip to the Upper Missouri this year. We took that vacation to Florida in February, we've used a handful of days since then, and before the year is out, there are lots of holidays that will need attention. Jan Michael does not work for a company that believes in unlimited days off - completely unreasonable, I know! :) - so this summer we'll spend our weekends at places close to home. Besides, gas that costs 4 bucks a gallon (and probably more by the time June rolls around) tends to steal the thunder out of road trips, so maybe it's just as well.
Anyway, it occurs to me that I've only ever shared a few pictures from last year's adventure, which is appalling. Let's rectify that, shall we?
Like the year before, our first stop was Holland Lake, home of very tippy canoes, water so clear you can see to the bottom, and lots of sweet memories for the brothers, who camped here as little tykes.
Flying into a storm.
