We had a wonderful time at my parents house on Thanksgiving Day! It's about 1-1/2 hours to their house. Luckily, it wasn't a snowy day - it was gorgeous... first we pass over the mountain, then we go through Virginia City (an old gold mining town in Montana), we're greeted by a few neighbors on the way up to their house and finally we're on top of the world. From their house you can see the entire valley - then after a wonderful dinner with family and friends we walk down the road for a nice leisurely stroll! Great Day! Hope yours was, too!
