Usually heading to Maine for a summer vacation, the Altena family, with their Squire newspaper, instead drove west for the first family vacation in that part of the country. Watch for a write-up with photos of elk, moose, mule deer, male and female big horned sheep. Here Beth (Squire Editor and owner) and Bill Altena are pictured at the top of a mountain with an elevation of over 9,000 feet. (FYI, we drove up.)
