Hello from Olympia. I'm workin' hard on the upcoming tour and the new CD.

Hana and my's trip from North Dakota was pleasant. We soaked in a couple Montana hot springs, visited a handful of friends, raided a few thrift stores. Weather was nice. Roads were dry.

A highlight of our trip was driving to Yellowstone Park to soak in the Boiling River. As we were leaving the Park we witnessed an epic bighorn sheep battle. On a practically sheer cliff, seven huge rams fought for the affection of one ewe. It was a harrowing spectacle to watch these super-ovine creatures fall and plunge down the mountain. Broad horns smashed and echoed across the canyon. Boulders clattered onto the road. The beleaguered ewe got the worst of it, it appeared.

Gnarly.

Hot springs in the snow is one of my very favorite things, but maybe that's just because I've never seen a bighorn sheep battle -- WOW!
