St. Regis, Montana
It was really hard for Edward to think of the camper moving again. He had had such fun with Elliot and Emmla over three weeks. There had been plenty of sleep overs at the camper and this was the first time Emmla had slept in the camper. What fun! And he got to celebrate Emmala's birthday with the family and have a special sleep over with just Elliot. He got to visit their new home in Mount Vernon, Washington, go to Anacortes to the beach and a whole lot of other adventures. It was sad for Edward to have this part of the trip come to an end. However, as Edward has learned, all adventures reach their conclusion and a trip home can be an exciting adventure, too.
Three big mountain passes were topped with ease today. Stephens Pass on US 2 in Washington, 4th of July pass in Idaho and Lookout pass on the border of Idaho and Montana. The camper and truck made the trips over the passes with ease.
Tonight, Edward got a real treat! The camper stopped in St. Regis, Montana and Edward knows that St. Regis is famous for huckleberry milkshakes. Edward enjoyed sipping his milkshake as the moon rose and a beautiful sunset occurred over western Montana. Tomorrow Edward will be in Big Timber where he'll get to meet Cody and return the old tennis ball Cody left in the camper last time they were through that town. Then it is on home to Rapid City. Lots of miles, but lots of fun - Edward is having a marvelous summer so far this year.
