After three days with no hookups and spotty service, it feels good to recoup and catch up on the blog. Following our stay in Glacier, we are sort of kind of heading back home, though we’re not done exploring just yet!
Richard did need to get back to work world today, so the KOA destination and reasonable drive time suited us both just fine. We took Highway 2 east along the bottom of Glacier and then headed south, down Highway 89. These are both designated as scenic highways, but they sure are different. Highway 2 is just a delight for the eyes, with rivers, lakes, mountains in the background, pretty much the whole way until you get to the junction. 89 starts to turn into a high plains, sweeping hills of grain and cattle.
There wasn’t a lot to report from the day. We stopped in a little touristy place for a rest stop, drawn in by dinosaurs and a sign for ice cream. Added benefit was a bear display so I got to send bear pics to our son, whose birthday it is today. I guess the other noteworthy item was that we saw stunt jets swooping about as we approached Great Falls. That was fun.
An afternoon of unlimited wifi later and I’ve got the last week’s pictures posted. Responded to some emails, generally worked on feeling a little less “out there.” All good.
