Griz, Garden, Ghost for Labor Day Weekend
The letter "g" apparently describes our 3 day weekend. Saturday, Brian and I went to the Grizzlies home game. It was fun, exciting and loud -- everything you want. We went a bit early to walk around the tailgating, then went in to the stadium to watch the game. It was quite a romp - 72 to 3 in favor of the Grizzlies. It was beautiful weather until a storm cell came through, delayed the game, and then the blue skies returned. Sunday, we spent time gardening and taking advantage of the nice weather. Monday, the kids and I went to Garnet Ghost Town. It was a surprisingly large ghost town in the Montana mountains, perhaps 20 buildings. A gold mine boomed there for a few years in early 1900's, with just a few stragglers who remained on until the 1960's. The miners houses were fit for hobbits, at best, and it showcased rather spartan living. It was neat to see and the kids got a kick out of it.
