Long Flat

This afternoon we went for a drive to an area in the mountains near us called Long Flat. Sam has been working with a couple to design a house for them to build on their lot there and he wanted to check it out in person. The roads weren't great but once we got up there it was just beautiful. We saw several people we know - one was on a family four-wheeler ride and the other was stranded on the side of the road because his dune-buggy had run out of gas. :) (The road is narrow so we pulled over whenever another vehicle approached. Sam has a big logo on his truck so anyone who knows us can spot us a mile away.) We also ran into some people we know who have a cabin up there. They invited us to come over and see the cabin. I was thrilled because I really needed to use their restroom! :) We ended up staying for quite a while. Our kids had fun playing with their kids and Camaron had a blast shooting BB guns! He is such a good shot! At one point we spotted this herd of Elk. The picture was taken from in front of the cabin. One day I would love to have a cabin up in the mountains to use as a "get-away!" Here is a picture of one of the deer we saw as well. The roads into those mountains are only open for a few months out of the year. There is still a little bit of snow here and there. In the winter you can only get in by snowmobile.
