From Donna:

Alan and I took a day this week to explore some of the dirt roads in the Bitterroot National Forest. We drove out the West Fork of the Bitterroot River to Painted Rocks Reservoir and beyond. When the pavement ended, we kept on going. Thunder Mountain Rd. took us toward Horse Creek Pass through a burned area where wildflowers poked up through lush, green undergrowth. Bear grass was just beginning to bloom (check out our Facebook photo). Next time, we’ll keep driving over the pass to Shoup, Idaho. Do you enjoy exploring dirt roads and trails? Share your favorites with me in an email. Alan and I are always looking for new places to explore.

From Nicole:

Hi everyone! I’m just back from a great beach vacation to Mallorca. This is my third year hitting the island’s beautiful beaches and I fall more and more in love with it every year! I have always been somewhat hesitant to choose one yearly vacation spot, opting instead to visit new places each year. But the truth is that going to a place where the people recognize you and your family is a great feeling. Returning to a destination that you love really is the ultimate in relaxing getaway.
