Travel Day, Harlowton to Great Falls, MT

This was a travel day for the sistahs. We left Harlowton, Chief Joseph Park at about 8:30 a.m. and made our way on highway 191 north to intersect with highway 87 to continue into Great Falls. Road construction slowed us way down. We were traveling at a great 14 mph for several miles. When we once completed the road construction, we then had 18 wheelers lined up behind us wanting to get through so they could pick up more cattle! They were very considerate passing us and we were spaced out fairly well to help anyone one to pass. We did get to see someone rushing to meet his maker by passing on a hill! I hate those guys doing that. He was in a van and you know what, he only got a little bit closer. We caught up with him at the next construction zone. We had some really great vistas. Here are some that were taken out of the window. It was the 'hold the camera up, point and shoot. So the shots might be a little shaky and you will see the overhead fan and for fun I showed the driver's side window splitting a shot (just one of several). Driving an RV is a two-handed job.

Rest area where Liz and I stopped for photo ops.

We took advantage of a Wal-Mart Supercenter and stocked up on our needed supplies. Yeah, probably more than we needed. It was a really nice store. They were in the process of rearranging the store. My sister does that in an 'on-call' basis for Wal-Mart. She has another job she does for them and then she gets called on to travel around and do this with some other folks in her work area. She enjoys doing that kind of work. It is very physical. Yes it does confuse us as customers because they just moved everything around!

Tomorrow is a special day for me as I am going birding with some of my friends who have a summer home in the Bitteroots area of Montana. Will be good to see them again. Can't wait to see the feathers!

I do hope you are enjoying the trip as much as I am.

  1. I didn't realize you ran into that much construction. You are an intrepid bunch dealing with all the construction and the cold weather so well.
