So I left the clinic and went right into the van and out to West Boulder via Big Timber, MT. It was a beautiful day--so clear and green--and we really enjoyed the ride. Soon we turned off onto West Boulder Road, crossing the Brokaw's ranch, which was full of these darling brown cows...
It has a rustic little kitchen and electricity... plus a dining room ,wood stove, and lots of beds and cots, for only $30 per night!

After our hike we had quiet time--naps, painting, legos
And after dinner we tried out our awesome new camp shower!

Bye, bye, West Boulder! (That's the Brokaw's on the right)
