Wednesday and Thursday we did the normal - cleaning, laundry, bills, etc..
On Friday morning, I woke up sick . Seems like I get some little virus every month. Sheesh!!! But today we had to take the motorhome to the garage. So we packed up, locked the kitties in the bedroom (poor things) and off we went. By noon it was done and the price was a lot less than we expected. (M&W Trucking Repair). That afternoon, it rained and rained so it was a good day to just “nest” on the couch with the kitties.
Saturday I felt much better but we continued to putsy around the motorhome. Plus it was still a little rainy.
Sunday we woke to a beautiful blue sky so Andy decided to wash the motorhome. In the afternoon, we took a ride to Missouri Headwaters State Park.
On our way this building was huge:
It was an old granary.
We arrived at the Missouri Headwaters State Park.
One of the major goals of the Corps of Discovery (or the Lewis and Clark Expedition) was to follow the Missouri to its source (hoping that the Missouri would lead to the Pacific Ocean).
This is the Jefferson:
This is the Madison:Float trip down the Madison - check out the clouds and mountains in the background:
The joining of the Madison and the Jefferson:
The Gallatin - the last river to join the other two to become the Missouri. All three rivers are huge and really moving. Combining them all, makes the Missouri a very large and flowing river:
One of the pioneer cemeteries. This one holds three young children who died of black diphtheria in the 1870’s.
Scenes around the park:Beyond the state park was the town of Trident:
The streets, sidewalks, and driveways were still there.
The cement plant - still operational:What a view on our way home:
It was great to get out and about.
The past few days we have met many people who are on their way to Alaska - so excited for them and wish we were going along - .
We have fallen in love with this part of Montana - we will be back!
Stay tuned for our next adventure and enjoy today.
