The Beartooth Pass

IMG_3408

We’ve relocated to Red Lodge, Montana, a darling little town located at the foot of the Beartooth Mountains.  From here we are able to do some exploring into the mountains and travel the famous Beartooth Highway, considered to be one of the most scenic highways in America.   The 64 mile highway starts in Montana, then crosses into Wyoming connecting to the eastern entrance of Yellowstone NP at Cooke City.  Continue reading

Yellowstone Beauty

Grand Prismatic at Midway Geyser Basin.

We made a couple of more forays into Yellowstone with our good friends Steve and Diana who spent the week at the same RV park as us.   We hit it hard the last couple of days and it was well worth it for we saw some incredible sights and the weather was perfect. Here are some more images of the wonders of Yellowstone.     Continue reading

Yellowstone National Park

IMG_3263We headed down into Yellowstone again, this time toward the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, which is a region we had not previously explored.    We were able to watch a black bear and her cub meander through a field of flowers looking for tidbits, totally unperturbed by the hordes of onlookers.   Continue reading

Livingston, Montana

IMG_6371We’re spending a whole week at Yellowstone’s Edge RV Park which is about 30 miles north of the North Entrance to Yellowstone NP.  We’ve made two forays into the park so far, once to explore the Mammoth Hot Springs area and the next day to cross the Lamar Valley and on to Cooke City outside of the park for lunch and then back.

Little Bighorn Battlefield and Billings, Montana

On our way to meet up with friends in Billings we stopped for the night at the 7th Ranch RV Park on the Crow Agency, adjacent to Little Bighorn Battlefield.   The RV park was a wonderful respite from the wind which we battled once again and we arrived in time to tour the Battleground and visitor center that evening.

Palisades State Park, S Dakota

Our journey west takes us on I-90 across southern Minnesota and into S. Dakota.  We’ve travelled this route before at this time of year and encountered strong winds which tore the cover off our air conditioner, so we were a little apprehensive about what would be in store for us this time.  We were pleasantly surprised though, it was smooth sailing as we passed from Minnesota into S. Dakota although the huge wind farms all across southern Minnesota attest to the fact that this truly is a wind corridor. Continue reading

Another Summer, Another Adventure

IMG_20170530_143633068

The pilot, co-pilot and navigator are all ready!

Our 2017 summer travel plans had us leaving Florida just as the heat was nearing triple digits in late May.   Florida was in a severe drought when we left and there were wildfires all across the state.   Eventually the rains will come and with them the stifling humidity so our plans are fairly loose – head to the Rocky Mountains, primarily Montana, Wyoming and Colorado seeking cool mountain air and fresh cold streams.
