September 16, 2010 Rain And Wind
We were awakened to the sound of rain and wind and I had killed the camper battery with my camera and computer. Last night I had shot a time-lapse of the sky as the sun went down and the stars arose. It had taken over 500 shots with exposures lasting up to 30 seconds. That killed the battery. It was cold, in the 30’s and the heater wasn’t working so Randy cranked the truck and recharged the camper battery. We decided to add a second battery, so, we drove to Browning, a small town on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. Luckily there was a NAPA auto parts place there.
It rained for most of the day and the park rangers have assured us that we are only getting rain, nothing else. Later in the day Randy spotted mountain goats on the mountain nearest to us. They are amazing, They live on the very edge. There were 7 all together. 2 were babies. They climbed higher and higher and finally disappeared into the fog covering the top of the mountain.
