Wet Dog Cafe and Astoria Brewing in Astoria Oregon

While we were in Oregon it rained a lot. You’re probably thinking “thanks Captain Obvious, we knowit  rains a lot in Oregon.”

One byproduct of rain and traveling with a dog is a wet dog. For those of us who own dogs we cringe at the thought of a wet dog, right? One because they stink to high hell and two they seem to always want extra love and attention while sopping wet. Boomer is no different than your typical dog while wet 🙂

One of the main reasons I wanted to visit Ellensburg was the Iron Horse Brewery. I enjoy their Irish Death beer – which is not really a beer you want to mess around with. It has an ABV of 7.8% and will knock you on your ass before you even realize you’re on your ass.  I’ve been knocked down several times but I always come back for more (not sure what that says about my personality – but let’s just leave it with I love this beer!)

Day 2 – Traveling across Montana from Butte to Bozeman to Billings

We were still in Montana on the second day of our trip to South Dakota.  We would be traveling across Montana from Butte to Bozeman to Billings.  I grabbed some breakfast from the hotel and eavesdropped on the conversations going on around me. It is what I do when I solo travel as it beats talking to myself in public and looking like a crazy. It appeared to be homecoming for The University of Montana (Go Griz!) and there were several individuals at the hotel attending the football game that day. I was pleased to not be hanging around Missoula for the day due to the extra people running around.
