April through June, 2009

Dave and Andrea visited us from France the first week of June. They were not quite prepared for the snow we encountered on a three day trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks.

Jennie helped put in a garden. Consulting with the local ranch supply store, we opted to keep animals out with two 3 foot high electric fences spaced 3 feet apart. The rationale is that large animals cannot jump over the two fences. Sure enough, the first night something attemped the jump and failed. Stringing one of the lines about 3" off the ground keeps the small animals out. So far there is no further evidence of attempted break-ins.
