Where in these mountains are you hiding?  Are you still in Yellowstone, or have you moved on?  Isn’t it getting cold up there? It has dropped into the 80s here daytime, and 60s at night.  Just wondering about you; we heard from you so often when you were on the AT, and then having you here totally spoiled me.  I love when I know that you are nearby.

Love, Mom

Hi Mom

I was in the Craters of the Moon NM in Idaho last night. This morning while I was driving to one of the trails I was met by a park ranger who told me I had to leave.He was very kind and apologetic.It is almost getting too cold and stormy to be up here near the mountains. Every night it gets way below freezing, and with all the cloudy days, I’m having trouble getting a charge from my solar panel. I think it is almost time to migrate.Tonight I have found a hidden campsite in the Sawtooth National Forest that doesn’t appear to be important enough to be attracting attention from the forest service. I hope I don’t get a knock on the door in the middle of the night!~On The Trail With Castaway 

Love, Dale
