After a day-and-a-half of traveling, kath and I have made it to the Badlands. A fascinating, quiet, dry place, the Badlands exist due to an ancient shallow sea and a lack of modern precipitation.
We are heading into Montana soon, trekking up to Glacier NP and then on to Yellowstone and points south.
Kath and I are waiting for our tractor tour to start at the beautiful Benziger Family Winery, located just outside Glen Ellen, California.
The winery focuses on growing grapes and fermenting them in a biodiverse way, and the entire farm is constructed so that the sum of the flora and fauna is greater than its parts.
I’d bet the wine is pretty tasty, too. We will get to sample some after the tour.
Jeff noted that this robe was a gift when he was in high school.
We made it to SF without incident late last night. Jeff kindly picked us up at the BART station at midnight and fed us before turning in.
For Kath’s birthday, we decided to spend the weekend in Hot Springs, AR. After a few trips to the Arlington for baths, we are both feeling completely relaxed and looking forward to perfect fall evening and a scrumptious dinner.
