Sky Steve, I hope you had a great time camping in the Idaho! Did you get any photos.

Paul,
We got home this afternoon. Had a little nap, and am at it again. Because we had to leave yesterday and come home today, we didn't have a chance to go deep into the backcountry. We did take a few stills and a little video so in the next day or so I'll get them edited and loaded. In the mean time, here are a couple:
Our camping stuff, Kris and Kashi:

Looks like y'all had a great trip. I'd have trouble with my dog, he'd be a handful doing something like that. He's 65 lbs Basset/Pit Bull Mix, if he didn't enjoy it I'd be in trouble.

Paul,
I understand about the dog! Kashi wears her Mutt Muffs, lays down between us and sleeps most of the trip. She's been flying as long as I have.

My dog would have bit my hand off putting those on!

Correction not Basset / Pit Bull, he's a Beagle / Pit Bull Mix. If he ever catches his nimasis those pesky fuzzy tailed rats (aka a Squirrel) he will bay at it for a couple of minutes before he rips it's head off.

Terminal Morains and outwash from the Ice age glaciers. Between 1,000,000 and 11,000 years ago at least seven glaciers advanced to the west end of the Kittitas valley and then receded. lookout Mountain Ranch, Hyak, Domerie, Ronald, Bullfrog, Indian John, and Swauk Prairie.

Patterened Ground on Manastash Ridge. These were named "Manastash Mounds" by my old geography professor Martain Katzz. He took us on field trip here in 1970 when I was going to Central Washing State college, now Central Washington University.

A couple weeks ago there was a fire along interstate 82 near the top of Manastash Ridge. The wind blows the fire through the sage and grass and turns it black then the wind comes back and blows the black away.

I was up by 4:45 this morning, in the shower and off to the airport. In the air by 25 after 5. real nice air at that time, a good hour of flight before getting back to the house and have breakfast with the wife and than off to work and there by 7:30. I do that every morning now until summer is over.
