It’s Day #7. We are up with the chickens since we have a long day and a mountain ahead of us.
This mountain is the original reason we are back since we have unfinished business. In March of 2013 a snowstorm stopped us in our tracks. It is August now so we should be clear to go, but we must get an early start to make it all the way to Fonfria today.
A group of rambunctious teenage boys out and about at 5:30 a.m. seem suspicious at first, but we quickly realize they are just playing pranks on a cafe employee opening up for the day. She is not amused and we pass by with ease.
The video is a little jiggly because I didn’t want to be left behind, all alone, in the dark!
We find a self-service concession stand utilizing an honor system. We also see these in western Minnesota, along the highways, when someone has garden produce available for purchase and they are not able to tend the stand.
Ah-h-h-h-h… this is the life and not a snowflake in sight!
