This is a picture from the hotel in Sheridan, Wyoming. Pretty little town at the foothills of the Big Horn Mountains.
Didn’t get a picture of the Montana border sign. I was on I-25/90 and didn’t see the exit.
There is so much history along the interstate and one day I’ll come back to see stuff like Custer’s Battleground and Memorial; the Crow Nation Museum; and some other things I can’t remember right now. Stopped for gas in Hardin, MT and ran into a guy from San Antonio headed to Kalispell, MT for the summer. He even knew the general area when I told him where I was from!
In Billings, I decided to leave the interstate and follow US87 north. Again, some great, great scenery and a reminder how much open country exists in the wester U.S.A. Drove through the Bull Mountains and Roundup, MT which, at around 2,000 people, is a pretty big town. Turned west at Grass Range, MT (about 100 people from what I could see) and followed the Lewis & Clark trail through Lewistown, MT and on into Great Falls, MT.
Great Falls is on the Missouri River and is running full due to the snow melt. In fact, I had 92F on the thermometer in my truck and just missed a large, severe thunderstorm that passed just to the east of Great Falls.
Tomorrow – on to Calgary.
