Jul 16, 2018 - Havre, Montana

Part 2 We have traveled route 87 before. Nonetheless, we stop at a scenic overlook. This is a great view of the Missouri River. I imagine Lewis and Clark walking in this very spot. We pass the Visitor Center for the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. It is a huge protected area of the Missouri River. From what I can find out, the locals call this area “The Breaks.” We have been to the Visitor Center and Fort Benton in the past. The road northeast is good. It is straight and the speed limit is 70. Of course! We do the speed limit...

Jul 4, 2018 - Projectile bovine feces

July 3 - 200 mi to Fort Peck MT, Very straight roads, cattle and horses, very few ranch homes, the most desolate country yet traveled on this trip. About cattle, we stopped at a rest area/info center next to a cattle trailer; redolent of that odor associated with same. After leaving and setting up at campground I discovered that the side of our trailer that was next to the cattle had been doused with shit projected from their ventilation holes. Scrubbing Bubbles, windex and paper towels solved that problem. Lesson learned- never ever park...

The 3rd day on the road we made it to Havre, MT. We encountered hot/windy conditions, so that made travel a little slow, and we didn't reach our destination until after 6 pm. We stayed at Evergreen Campground, south of Havre. It looks like an old farm converted to a campground, kind of different, but it was clean, quiet, and met our needs for the night.

Jun 28, 2015 - Havre, MT

Sun, 28 Jun: Happy Birthday Nancy, the best sister in the world! May you have a healthy & happy year enjoying your wonderful family Today we finally left the mountains and entered Montana's High Plateau. This is the section of the state that coined the phrase "Big Sky Country". But first we had to climb and cross the Continental Divide, which we did between Essex and East Glacier. From there it was pretty much downhill for the balance of the day. We departed the Glacier Haven RV park a few minutes before ten after filling our fresh water...

2015 Travels

May 23, 2015 - Devils Tower

Not much excitement today. A 6 1/2 hr drive ahead of us as we leave the National Grasslands. I feel like a broken record but I really mean it today and the past 2 days have been long stretches of massive farms that go on forever. We have seen a lot of cows and wheat fields. We entered Montana and the scene was the same, except we did see Montana's version of an ant hill. They grow um big out here! Just kidding. The one pictured is not quite as good as the first one I saw; it was white and really did look like an ant hill. Tonight will be...

Jul 25, 2014 - Havre, MT.

Havre is considered the largest town on the Montana Hi-line. Montana Hi-Line region is rolling prairies, endless fields of wheat, large heards of cattle, towering mountains in the far distance and remoteness. All tucked in the 'Big Sky' that Montana is known for. It has a population of 9600 people with the largest employer being the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. They have a major hub here and has the second busiest Amtrak stop in Montana. We didn't find much to do. Our biggest source of entertainment was the RV park. The big rigs...

Jun 24, 2014 - A World Underground

Our stay in Havre was intended to be just an overnight stop. The rural peaceful surroundings lured us in and we decided to stay a couple more days. I am glad we did. There were some interesting things to see in town and we liked just sitting out and visiting with our neighbors. The campground owners were warm and friendly as well. They were watching their grandchildren while grandchild number 4 was being born. The kids came to visit all the animals. There was a toddler who was very taken by the cat and I was happy to say that Mia was...

May 3, 2014 - Winter is Back in Montana

Our route today took us from the Rocky Mountains to the Great Plains. When we started this morning the skies were threatening with the clouds hanging over the mountain tops, but before long the rain started. Shouldn’t be a problem driving up to Marias Pass as long as the temperature stays in the upper 40’s or lower 50’s. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for the temperature to plummet as we began to climb to the pass reaching 30-32 F. Once the temperature went down, the rain changed to snow. After several warm days, I wasn’t worried about...
