Trekking Across Montana

June 22 & 23, 2016 – We crossed into the USA at Sweetgrass, Montana, a hundred miles or so south of Calvary.


We knew we were back in the States when we saw the Paper Dollar Bar. LOL

Small town, middle of nowhere, low on gas. Larra goes in for coffee, makes friends with the girl working there, hears her life story, gets the coffee for free. It’s a Wonderful Life.img_8814 img_8815 img_8817img_8799 img_8811 img_8808 img_8819 img_8822

We’re really not very good with the selfie stick. LOL.
We hung out at the gas station / casino / restaurant / truck stop / pub last night, made new friends, and really had a great time. They only have four rooms to rent, to get there early.20160623_081441 20160623_082114 20160623_082207 20160623_082811 20160623_082829 20160623_082832 20160623_082854 20160623_082900



Getting off the Interstate, like we did yesterday, is when we always have a great time and see great stuff.20160623_090652 20160623_092541 20160623_092726

We just stumbled on this great old hotel in this picturesque small town, Lavina, Montana. It’s the Adams Hotel, built in 1908.20160623_092804 20160623_092904
