Pictures for my dad

Ok, so these pictures are up for my dad.  He is writing his autobiography, and asked for some pictures that I took at the family reunion this summer.  These are all places that he grew up.  I was unsuccessful at e-mailing them, so I am posting them instead ... why not share my thoughts on it? 
As far as journaling goes, I am trying out digital scrapbooking.  So far I like it, I will let you know in the future how I feel about it.

The red roofs belong to the hotel that my grandpa and dad built and lived at.

I have many fond memories of Waterton and a few of the farm even though I was only seven when we moved. Thanks for posting the pictures.

yes! Thanks for posting. I did not know that your dad was raised there.

Old Chief mountain sure brings back GREAT memories of my grandpa Boehme too. It was our families' favorite to climb. I remember the last time my grandpa wanted to go......he really insisted and I am glad that he did. He shortly had a stroke after that last climb and then passed away. The mountain also took a dramatic fall and it no longer is available for people to climb (at least in the area we always did).

It however, still make a BEAUTIFUL mountain photo.

Thanks! Especially for bringing back my own memories.
