2008 Western Adventure

 

Day 24 - July 13, 2008

I'm not sure that staying over an extra day in Livingston, MT made any difference in my energy level.  I woke up tired, and stayed tired all day.  The ride out of Livingston was nice, and there were a number of neat things to see along the way, but for the most part it's rolling plains. 

One thing that I did notice about Montana is the number of small casino's, most of which seem like they are in strip mall's.  I haven't been in one yet, so I don't know what kind of gambling they offer.  I figure I need all my luck on the road and don't want to waste any in a casino.

There are quite a few river's in Montana, and most of them are clear water river's.  I suppose most of the water comes from all of the mountains that exist in the state.  The Yellowstone river is one of the bigger river's that runs through Montana and Wyoming.  I still haven't gone for a dip in one of the rivers, but I will before the trip is over.  I've also got some fishing gear that hasn't been used yet.

I pulled over in a small town to take a picture of a Veteran's Memorial.  While I was stopped, an old guy on a Honda Rebel pulled up and started talking to me.  He was a local, and was just cruising around town.  You could tell that he was proud of his little town.  It was also obvious that he envied the trip that I was taking.  It didn't sound like had ridden much beyond the borders of his city.

I saw a lot of horses today, and stopped to take a bunch of photos of them.  As you all know by now, I love horses.  I even saw a bunch of camels.  They really looked out of place on the green plush farms.  I always relate camels to deserts.  Lat that afternoon I rolled in to Choteau, Montana, and happened upon the "Big Sky Motel".  It was clean, cheap, and had wi-fi.  What more can a traveling man ask for.  I had dinner that evening at John Heny's restaurant, and the food was delicious.  Of course, on the road most meals are delicious. 

I caught up on my travelogue, and did a little work as well, and still got to bed at a respectable hour.
