I Cannot Believe Our Good Fortune

 

Itch-Kep-Pe Park, Columbus, Montana

Beans and I stayed here in mid-July three years ago.  We really liked this place.  That time we camped at the east end along the banks of the Yellowstone River.  I knew the west end had more shade and I was hoping for the best.  With fingers and paws crossed we pulled in.  Good, not many people here.  The few full-in shade spots were taken.  That’s okay.  I do need some solar plus your neighbor is right there next to you.  At the far end before continuing down the road to where we were before, there it was. 


Beans, we better take this one.  I don’t think we will be able to do any better.
The trees provide just enough shade all day long with only a scattering of sunlight for the solar panels.  You can see in the above photo the distance to our nearest neighbor.
That’s us in the distance on the left.


We will stay here the full ten days allowed.  There is no camp fee but they do take donations.  
I left a donation last time and will do so again this visit.


If our good fortune in landing this spot wasn’t enough, I am very happy to report my gut issues are over.  That was two and a half weeks of unpleasantness I never want to experience again.
