Cool, thanks for posting!

The irony is that Mr. Clark defaced that monument in 1806, probably without asking the locals whether they or their Gods would mind.

And your better half gets to keep the key to the beer fridge?

There are many other names and dates carved into this rock. The most recent that I could identify was in 1939.

Bozeman and Helena, Montana

When we woke up in Livingston this morning it was raining. We decided to sleep in a bit, and not try to break camp in the rain. The rain cleared out around ten. We got Lucy all packed up and got on the road right at the crack of noon. We drove the thirty miles over to Bozeman where we mailed the day's Moose Tags shipments. We looked around Bozeman for a bit before hitting the road for Helena. We got to Helena around 5:00 PM. Helena is the capital of Montana. We drove by to look at the Capitol Building and got a few pictures.

We decided to continue up to Great Falls as neither of the campgrounds in Helena looked real good. We got to Great Falls around seven and found a real nice campground here.

We are planning to stay here for a couple of days and tour the area.

Lucy is camped at Great Falls, Montana. We decided to spend a couple of nights here to have a chance to take a look around the area. This morning we headed out northwest of Great Falls to Choteau, Montana, and beyond to Ear Mountain. We hiked the Ear Mountain Trail for a couple of miles.

On the way back to Great Falls, we encountered a bear family consisting of a mother and three cubs. The mother bear was quite large. When she saw us coming along the dirt road, she got up on her hind legs to confront us. She was either a large black bear or a Grizzly. As we grew closer we could see the cubs rushing across the road. When all the cubs got across, the mother bear quickly followed, and they all scampered off into the nearby brush. SuEllyn was able to get a couple of quick photos before they disappeared.

When we got back to Great Falls,we took a quick tour of the downtown area before returning to Lucy.

This morning we broke camp in Great Falls, and towed Lucy to Polson, Montana. The first 150 miles of today's journey was along Montana Highway 200 from Great Falls to Missoula. This route is one of the most spectacular stretches of scenic highway that we have seen. Midway on this roadway we crossed the Continental Divide at an altitude of 5700 feet above sea level.

We toured Missoula for a short time before heading north on US 93 to Polson, Montana at the southern tip of Flathead Lake. Flathead Lake is 30 miles tall by 15 miles wide. It is located just south of Glacier National Park. We got Lucy into a really nice campsite at the Flathead River RV Park. We got Lucy all set up and made a Wal-Mart run.

We plan to spend a few days here touring the area.

It's an old Lance truck camper mounted on a mid 70's Dodge dually pick-up truck. Both the truck and the camper appeared to be in excellent condition, and in current use.

Lucy is still camped at Polson, Montana. We spent the day touring around Flathead Lake. We drove north on the east side of the lake. We reached Bigfork at the top of the lake. We decided to continue north to Columbia Falls and Whitefish, Montana. We came back south through Kalispell, and checked out some campgrounds there. We picked one out and made reservations for Monday and Tuesday. We are going to bring Lucy up to Kalispell tomorrow. It is close to Glacier National Park, and we plan to explore the Park for a couple of days.

We came back south on the west side of Flathead, and took in the sights along the way. We got back to Lucy in Polson before dark.

Kalispell and Whitefish are very pretty towns.

Love that part of the country, period. I'm envious you are there.

Curious, Moosetags, why the two campers--how is it utilized in your day to day travels? My wife thought it would be great for for a person like me that snores instead of twin beds ha!!
