Big Sky Country
We were on the road by 8:15 this morning, and drove west under sunny skies but cool temperatures. Eventually our route took us off the Interstate and onto a two-lane highway that was practically devoid of traffic and wound its way through Big Sky Country, rewarding us with some lovely vistas, as the altitude increased, as did, oddly enough, the temperature. We arrived at the Conestoga Campground in mid-afternoon (we had actually stayed here last year, but going the opposite direction). We took the opportunity to do some laundry; part of it was dried using the Prairie Dryer:
We went walkabout, then, beverages and books in hand, sat and watched the sun, and the temperature, begin to fall:
We plan on leaving early early tomorrow, as we want to stop in Helena, before pushing on across Idaho and into Washington State.
