Day 11 - Three Forks, MT - Helena, MT

Day 10 - Three Forks, MT - Helena, MT


Today the day started with a coating of fog, but it burned off before 8:00 am and we were off on our adventure by 8:20 am. Today we went to Big Hole National Battlefield, Wisdom, MT. It was a beautiful ride to the site and it was very interesting to find out what really happened at that battle. We listened to the Park Ranger tell us about the artifacts that have been found on the site and then we watched a 25 minute movie about the incident. It was extremely well done.

Then we had lunch in Deer Lodge at the Schlots Restaurant. I had the best hot roast beef sandwich. It was piled high and it was delicious. As we were leaving the restaurant, I made a new friend. Isn't she just the most gorgeous thing?

Then it was off to Grants-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site, in Deer Lodge, MT. It was very interesting to hear how Grants and Kohrs amassed 10 million acres of ranch land and he was very successful in his endeavors. There were over 80 original buildings on site and it is still a working ranch. Cool.
Jeff & Sue Miller,our wonderful hosts!

Then we traveled to Helena, MT to tag up with Jeff and Sue M. from the 2011 Cross Country trip.  Jeff took us on a tour of Helena and then we stopped at Liz and Ken Eaton's house just to stop and say hello. We had met them at the BBQ Jeff and Sue hosted during our layover day during the 2011 Cross Country trip. Jeff and Sue are being kind enough to let us crash here before we head to Missoula, MT to meet Miriam J. so that we can continue our adventure.
