We left home on June 18th and headed North to Glacier National Park where we spent three days in the rain. Our grandson Ashton joined us for the first half of the trip.

We visited Nelson, BC to visit Rick's cousin, then headed South to Spokane and stayed with a friend on her 40 acre farm. She raises Doodles and Ashton fell in love with farm life and the puppy's.

There are 17 dogs on the farm

Ashton fell in love with Ben, but couldn't convince his parents to adopt him.

Ashton learned to drive the farm Equipment

After the farm we headed to Courtenay, BC on Vancouver Island to visit Virg's son.
