Baby watch

Kooskia Idaho, wide spot in the road between a mountain and a river.

We left home about 7 am this morning. It's a two day drive from where we live in Nevada to Great Falls Montana. Mr. Lee is driving and I am reading Pound's Pisan Cantos to us over the engine and road noise. The combination is mind altering. I nearly finished them before we got to Kooskia where we are staying the night in the town's only motel. Our youngest son and his wife are expecting their first child any day and, if we're lucky, we'll get to Great Falls before the Big Event.

Kooskia was very lovely this evening. Twilight made it seem more like a stage set than a "real" place.

We ate at the China Cafe, one of Kooskia's two restaurants. I highly recommend it. We had a surprisingly good vegetarian dinner there. Even the fortune cookies were delicious.

My fortune read: "A pleasant surprise is in store for you in the near future."

The colours in the twilight photos are very nice. I love the different shades of blue.
Fortune cookies are eerily/vaguely correct at times as I'm SURE a new grandchild is most definitely a "pleasant surprise."
Hope you have a safe trip and a wonderful first meeting with the newest soul of the family:)
