The Supposed "Day of Rest"

We rode hard, yesterday, making the 500 mile trip from the heart of Yellowstone to home amid thunderstorms and overcast skies. It was actually better with the overcast than in the full sun, but we still stuck with the AC from the park boundaries on as they were having a heat wave, too.

We got home late and stayed up even later getting thing unpacked, getting the house cooled off enough to sleep. It was a good 85 degrees in the house when we got home, and one of my plants was just a goner. It actually makes some room in my bathroom, and I'd gotten it as a gift more than ten years ago, so I'm okay with finally saying good-bye to it. Though, more likely than not, I'll just keep it and nurse it back to health or something.
