Sleep, Laundry, Loa and Bison

As predicted, there was sleeping in and doing laundry.  We had to wait later in the morning for the laundry room because the camping cabins had been full.  So all of the sheets and blankets were being washed.  The lady that works in the RV park is a fast mover.  She could fold a fitted sheet in the twinkling of an eye.  After laundry there was going to Loa for water, paper towels and food.  Vegans and vegetarians, skip the next paragraph.

We bought a "Bistro Filet" which is a cut of meat I've not seen before.  It's a small muscle that comes off the shoulder.  The Loa grocery store has an actual live meat cutter who told us we should buy one.  They're tender, but have more flavor than a regular filet.  Apparently they're sold a lot in restaurants and are slowly making their way into grocery stores.  So we'll see if it's a good thing.  Update to post:  We are giving this a solid thumbs down.  It's tough and not that full of flavor.

Here is more scenic loveliness.

We stopped and looked at the bison.  They were far away from the road when we stopped.  The first time we drove by them they were by the road.  Uncooperative animals!

That's a bison shedding the winter coat, and two calves in the grass.

I like this rock formation, it reminds me of the back of a Stegosaurus.

Tomorrow is our last day here.  We will miss the rocks.


  1. Hello there nomads. Where to next?

  2. The back of a Stegosaurus for sure. Thinks for spelling it first, and not off the screen.

  3. I have never heard of the bistro filet. Thanks for the update so I dont waste my money. You are in beautiful country.

  4. Have you ever tried the Ugly Steaks from Dickman's Deli? They are amazing!! Never heard of a bistro filet. Thank you for all the fabulous rock pictures. I definitely want to go there!!

  5. That hill (mountain?) does look very stegosaurus-like! We'll be skipping the bistro filet.
