This morning we woke to a beautiful sunny blue sky kind of day (and I truly hope that this is the end of the rain for southern Alberta).
We packed up, said our goodbyes to Lynne and Fred and off we went south to the border.
Past the oil pumpers:
And beautiful horses:
Many old farm buildings:
And to the border crossing. We gave them our passports, answered a few questions and then were asked to pull over - routine inspection. The great thing was that the border agent was born in Pennsylvania so we chatted more about PA than anything else. I did lose one orange even though I purchased it in the U.S. Oh well. The last thing he said to us as he left was “Welcome Home.”
We continued south on I-15:
To Shelby, where we turned east on US-2:
Trains, Trains, and more trains:
With views like this, no wonder they call Montana “Big Sky Country”:
No sure what this yellow is but it was beautiful:
We arrived in Havre and are staying at the Fairgrounds for a few days. The rest of the afternoon and evening, I spent on the internet, getting caught up with the blog and emails. Tomorrow we hope to get caught up with phone calls.
We hope to stay on US-2 until we get to Michigan so stay tuned for our next adventures.
