Goodbye Wyoming. Hello Montana

Before we left Yellowstone we stopped to see Old Faithful, and the beautiful historic Old Faithful Lodge.

Mark and I disagreed on the route to take out of Yellowstone, because we didn’t agree on where we were going next. Mark won, and we headed north, to Bozeman, Montana.  

Bozeman was a place I had little interest in. And it was a place that I ended up loving. In fact, I was loving it even before we got there, because the drive there was so gorgeous!

The town of Bozeman is a cool little college town where the main drag is filled with cute shops and restaurants. We ate lunch, walked around taking photos, took a drive through the campus of Montana State University, and then went to the Museum of the Rockies.

Lunch!

I thought we hit the jackpot at the Museum of the Rockies when I saw a flyer advertising some kind of art and beer tasting event. I was disappointed when I realized the flyer said JULY 29, not JUNE 29. Bummer.

Our final stop this day, was at the KOA in Billings, Montana. An ok place, with a slight sewer stink about it. Don’t recommend the place, but, some kind and honest person at the campground saved my sorry a** by turning in my backpack to the front desk, after I had left it in the bathroom. 

My backpack had my wallet and my phone in it, credit cards, cash, and keys to the RV. And I didn’t even realize it was gone until the next morning. Phew! I was really lucky! So, I must give some bonus points to the Billings KOA, for having a truly honest person staying there!
