Our crib in Harlowton, Montana

The forecast for today was sunny and warm but tomorrow a cold front with rain is supposed to be comming our way. We want to spend a couple of days in Montana around Great Falls and Helena so we took advantage of the weather and made a quick trip through the corner of Wyoming and across eastern Montana.

We stopped for lunch in a tny little town called Broadus in eastern Montana and found a delightfull little resturant. It is in a house built in 1910 by the local judge and the food was amazing. We sat in the judges dining room and had the "special" which was pan seared salmon served on a bead of risoto.

Eastern Montana is fairly desolate with rolling, dry grasslands and very few towns or inhabitants other than the dozens of antelope we saw throughout the day. As we reached nearer to the central part of Montana the plains are broken up by buttes and a few river valleys. I have always loved this area of Montana.

We reached the small town of Harlowton just ahead of some nasty looking black clouds and checked into the Corral Motel, a typical small town motel. We had a great dinner next door in the log bar/resturant that was filled with local ranchers. Not a mini-golf course in sight. This is more like it.
