Summer Assignment - Missoula, Montana

“...stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead, climb more mountains, eat more ice creamy, go barefoot oftener, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets, laugh more and cry less. Life must be lived as we go along. ” - Robert J. Hastings, Tinyburg Tales

(I'm getting top marks in the 'eat more ice cream' part of the above assignment. And since this is Sweet Peaks ice cream, maybe I've also completed the 'climb more mountains' assignment?)
