Home to Sweet Baby C.


After stopping one last time at Backcountry Provisions for a packed lunch, we left Steamboat for the long haul back to the Twin Cities. With the exception of some interesting phone calls in Omaha, Nebraska, it was an uneventful drive home.

I was so excited to reunite with Ciara. She didn’t react like I thought she would. She was a bit pensive at first, then warmed up pretty quickly. It’s possible that she was giving me the cold shoulder for having been gone for three weeks.
