Pioneer Falls

I spent yesterday on a 3 hour hike with some of my friends. We decided to go south of Bozeman to the Spanish Peaks and a hike up to Pioneer falls. Now to get to the walk way you have to drive through Ted Turner's Flying "D" Ranch. He raises Buffalo and they can roam where ever they want :)

I would love to live right here, all those little dots you see are all buffalo, cool hu!

This was a little log cabin that was on the side of the road up to the trail. I could not imagine how hard life was living in this cabin back in the day when it was made.

This was the road block that we came across on our way to the trail head. I guess this is normal traffic for the area :)

This was the cool little bridge we had to cross to get on the right side of the river for the trail.

A view from the top. I was leaning on a big tree to make sure I was not going to fall :)

Me and the Falls!

This was the river at the top of the falls it was so beautiful out that day :)

Over all it was a great hike and a great day. It was nice to catch up with some friends I have not seen in a while and it is nice to find another hike to take Dan on. This same trail splits at one point and goes to a lake, I will have to try that some day, I heard it is amazing!

Hill Sprints

Dan and I did hill sprints yesterday and it was killer. We ram 4 x 30 -40 meter sprints up hill with a 25lb or 45 lb sand bag, WOW was that hard!
We are trying to go outside more to train instead of being cooped up in the gym all day. So far it has been great, I am getting more time to throw and I am teaching Dan to do it also. He is picking it up well and he will be competing in a week with me in the Yellowstone Highland games. It should be a blast! We also bought 2 - 16kg kettle bells and 3 different sledge hammers to train with. We are going to be doing some odd stuff, but fun stuff this summer :)
I am also going on a hike with some of my old volleyball girls this weekend, up in the Spanish peaks area, to a water fall with great views. I cant wait, it should be fun, but they are both smaller girls who can run marathons. I hope I can keep up with them :)

New Apartment

Well we moved into our new apartment this weekend. It is about half the size of our old house, but it will work for now. We are on campus and it takes me about 10-15 min to walk to work, I love it.

We are just waiting now to transfer into the house we really want and will stay in the next 4 years, as long as Dan is in school. The biggest plus is that it is a HOUSE and not an apartment, we can have our own washer and dryer, but most of all we wont share any walls with anyone!

Dan asked a nice man at our housing office if he could just give an estimate on time, he said it could be 1 week or 2, but it is not 100%. Even though, that will be fine with me to move 2 times in one month as long as I know we will be living in this new house for the next 4 years. Which will the the longest I will stay in one house in my adult life. I usually move houses every 1-2 years. It will be great! It is still small, but it will make Dan and I get rid of a lot of stuff we don't need.

Lets hope for a fast transfer so we can get into our house!

Dan's First Pre Calculus Exam

Great job Dan!!!!!

Dan got a 97% on his first exam! The average for the class was a 58% and he might have had the best grade in the class! I am so proud of him, he is going to do great in engineering!
