The second day we did some shopping, eating and more visiting with family. Then on the 4Th of July we drove the whole day! We started out by stopping at this little gas station on the Indian reservation and all these native Americans had tables set up and were selling food, pottery, and LOTS of jewelry! I found a wonderful freshwater pearl necklace for myself and some items for Smug-Sister, mom and step-mother. I really should have stocked up for Christmas gifts, but whatever!
The following day, my husband and took the 4-wheel drive and went on a drive for the day. If I thought that the road to Cow Creek was bad, that was like a 4-lane super highway compared to this road that was not even a road, more like a path with clifs on either side. I was in tears by the time we reached the top. The top was the top of the mountains, well above 10,000 feet elivation and there was snow! We stopped at this little ski lodge for lunch and then headed back to the ranch for more food, fireworks and family!
