So, we’ve picked up speed now. We hit four states this past week and are currently sitting in Rapid City, South Dakota. Here are some photos of our adventures.
On the way through Idaho we stayed the night in Coeur d’Alene. It’s a beautiful area with over 50 lakes formed from ancient glaciers.
They also had these statues of moose scattered about town. Not sure what that was about.
Next stop was Missoula, Montana. It was a nice drive, but we didn’t really see much of the town.
Driving through Montana we stopped at Madison Buffalo Jump. Before Europeans introduced horses to the Americas, Native Americans would run bison over this cliff as an effective way of hunting multiple animals at once.
Right outside the park we stopped to pet these horses in the snow.
We stopped for the night in Dayton, Wyoming. It was crazy cold. Thirty-six in Wyoming is way different than 36 in North Carolina.
We weren’t in Wyoming long, but it was nice.
On our way through the Crow Indian Reservation we stopped at the Little Bighorn Battlefield (Custer’s Last Stand). It’s an amazingly beautiful area.
It was eery how the graves were scattered throughout the hills.
When we hit Baker, Montana (about 10 miles from the North Dakota border) it was a drastic change in weather.
And it didn’t get any better once we entered the state. Poor Sarajane was white-knuckled driving on a solid sheet of ice.
I think it took us nearly two hours to make it 40 miles.
I shot this through the back window of the car. That is the actual road we were driving on.
