Day 184

This is an old way to get extra prints…you would order the print with a “wallet sized” print, and it would come attached like the top photo.  Pull it apart and then take off the advertising from Wayne’s Photo Finishing and you have sprint to share!  I imagine someone still does this for digitals, but I haven’t looked…

Day 183

Another blast from the past! The Dailylife Daughter #1 and her hubby were cleaning out my garage looking for garage sale items, and I was doing some sorting, when I found a LOT of photos I had thought lost. Here are just a few. The date on these photos is Aug 69, but that is the date the photo was printed…sometimes a single roll of film stayed in a camera for years, or just got left in a drawer without being developed. I found three of those yesterday! (Surprise Photo Time!) I believe these photos came from my brother Dennis’ camera. I didn’t have any that took square photos!

I am pretty sure this is the Bob Marshal Wilderness Hike we took. 100 miles (well, 90 or so…) and we got 50 miler and Historic Trails patch out of it! I have enlarged some of the individual photos.  The last two photos on the big sheet I am pretty sure are from the 1969 National Boy Scout Jamboree held at Farragut State Park in Idaho.  I know my brother attended it.

This is another pack train going by a camp of ours.  New Big Preirie again, I think.

Dad cooking dinner, and me with…a book???

(Inside joke…)

Another rest break!

Just hiking down the trail.

Near a grave…I am on the left in the orange shirt.

Day1518103

Someone got an assist in the crossing of the South Fork of the Flathead River.

Day1518104

Some pack train we had to get off the trail for (horses have the right of way; it is just easier for everyone).

 This is Dad and I at the border of the Bob Marshal Wilderness.

Dad is on the right.  I don’t know those other two…yet…

Day1518003

Dick Stark is the guy on the right in the white cap.

Day1518004

I think this is near Big Prairie Ranger Station.  The guy in the very back on the left is Dick Stark.

A rest stop along the trail.

Day 179

This was taken the evening of the 30th of Jun, 2015.  It is Jupiter (on top) and Venus together in the evening sky.  They are so close you can cover them with one finger!

(Click on it a couple of times to see it large.  BACK to return!)

Day1517901a

Now, take a close look again, using the arrows below.  You can see (barely!) four of the ons of Jupiter:

1) Ganymede

2) Europa

3) Io

4) Callisto

(Click on it a couple of times to see it large.  BACK to return!)

Day1517901b

Next time I will try to get some of the colored stripes visible on Jupiter.

Day 178

Sheesh!  40 years ago I was on a motorcycle trip to the East Coast, after I graduated from high school!  This is the day after graduation at Carla and Bert’s house at Marshal Ski Area in Missoula.  They were good friends of ours!  And thanks for the bike, Pops!  Tim has it in his garage and hopes to restore it to new, someday…

1972 Yamaha 350RC two stroke and me, in my fine motorcycle duds!

Day1517801

7400 miles in 34 days, $125 in gas and oil, a new set of spokes and two new pistons…I burned a hole in one in Cairo, IL, and he replaced it with the wrong one…

Day 177

Another blast from the past! The Dailylife Daughter #1 and her hubby were cleaning out my garage looking for garage sale items, and I was doing some sorting, when I found a LOT of photos I had thought lost. Here are just a few. The date on five of these photos is May 71, with one Aug 71, but that is the date the photo was printed…sometimes a single roll of film stayed in a camera for years, or just got left in a drawer without being developed. I found three of those yesterday! (Surprise Photo Time!) I believe these photos came from my brother Dennis’ camera. I didn’t have any that took square photos!

In 1970 my Boy Scout Troop (Troop 28!) took a long wilderness hike from Goat Haunt Ranger Station at the north end of Glacier National Park, to Logan Pass.  At least three of these photos are of that trip (top right, the two in the middle and the bottom right), while I am not sure what the others are…mostly…  We got our 50 Miler patch and an Historic Trails one!

Day1517701

The first photo is from some campout or other by Troop 28.  I can identify some of us…from Left to Right:

Steve Tanska, Dick Stark (the adult in the back; I don’t recall the kid in front of him) Randy Zinke (older brother to our current Congressman!?!), Bob Beausoliel, me (with the red bandana), and the adult I think is Neal?, the US Forest Service guy who helped the Troop a lot, I think…in the front row the kid no the left with glasses is Jim Black.  I don’t recall the rest…

(UPDATE:  On the right in the green shirt is Kevin Slaybaugh, the man in the hat on the right is probably Ozzie Black (Jim’s dad) and not Neal Hyde, and the kneeling orange shirt on the left is Curtis Macintyre…thanks Randy!)

(These are easier to see if you click on them a couple times to enlarge them; BACK to return here!)

Day1517702

Troop 28 in front of the Granite Park Chalet in Glacier National Park.  The guy one in on the left in a hat is Dick Stark.  Over on the other side there is an adult in the back row with a blue shirt and black hat, several people to the left of the right side.  That is my Dad.  My brother Dennis is in the white shirt to the left of him; I am in the blue shirt in front of him.

Day1517703

These are some of the big horn sheep we saw on that trip.  Not the ones that watched us go into Ptarmigan Tunnel and then walked over the top of the mountain to see us come out again.

Day 176

Another blast from the past!  The Dailylife Daughter #1 and her hubby were cleaning out my garage looking for garage sale items, and I was doing some sorting, when I found a LOT of photos I had thought lost.  Here are just a few.  The dates on these photos range from Sep 69 to Jun 71 but that is the date the photo was printed…sometimes a single roll of film stayed in a camera for years, or just got left in a drawer without being developed.  I found three of those yesterday!  (Surprise Photo Time!)  I believe these photos came from my brother Dennis’ camera.  I didn’t have any that took square photos!

So here are the first six photos, then a closer view of three of them.

In the middle row right, I don’t know who is in this group.  The Pavilion on the right is at Fort Steele, BC.  The lower left is from a furniture race at the end of the ski season at Big Mountain Ski Resort.

Day1517601

This “family” photo contains my Dad on the right, and Mom is the fourth on over (with the black hair).  I do not know who the other people are…they look vaguely familiar…

Day1517602

This is Me, Gramma, my sister Deyanne, and Hushpuppy, out in our front yard in Whitefish.  It was probably taken in Jul 69, around the time of the Moon Landing, although it could be a year earlier.  We put in a flagpole where we were standing in this photo, and I think it was there for Apollo 11.

Day1517603

I belive this is a photo of some of the trash left over after the City of Whitefish pushed the snow it removed from the streets all winter into the Whitefish River.  My Eagle Scout project was to get them to stop.  That is the old Baker Street bridge, just a few houses down river from our’s.  If you can grow up with a river in your backyard, I highly recommend it, even if it drives your parents nuts worrying about you.
