Moses Lake to Butte - Nia in Hayden
I woke up early in Moses Lake, WA and drove to Hayden, ID without incident.
I taught class and we had a blast. I used the focus of Moving Centers for Fantasic. I wanted to get a group shot after class, and I set up my movie camera to capture our movements. I framed us and then when I got in place in the photo, I crouched down so I wasn't blocking people behind me. But everyone followed suit and we were all crouched down for no reason. haha.
They're a really fun group and always give a very warm welcome.
I hung around on the big lawn in front of the fitness center and let River chase me, and a stick, and a leaf, and whatever we could find. Then we took a nice, long drive to Butte, MT.
We drove through the smoke that I thought I had left behind in Seattle. It was really bad at one point and then by the time I got to Butte it wasn't quite as bad. But it wasn't as pristine as Leavenworth, nor as Seattle by the time I left. I hope I'm not following the plumes eastward.
I have a microwave in the room so I heated up some of my soup and sausage for dinner before taking River for a stroll around Butte. It seems to be a big mining town. The town symbol is an oil well.
I'm staying in 'uptown' which I guess is the old-town.
