Montana Friends

This past February we had the privilege of meeting up with another RV-living, road-tripping family, the Ticknors. The adults and kids hit it off so well during our short time together that we had hopes of meeting up with them again in Montana (where they spend the summer).

This week, we got our chance. On our way to Yellowstone, we took a short detour to Helena for an afternoon of playing and yakking with the Ticknor family. Again, the time went way too fast! And, this time we took no pictures (Dana had her camera out and with her, but she took no pictures, either).

We opted to overnight in Helena @ CampWalmart before taking Vaughn’s suggested scenic route to West Yellowstone (our camping destination). We made sure to stop at the Wheat Montana Bakery for a treat (it was a nice to take a break halfway through the road construction that resembled a two track).

After a short jaunt on I-90, we headed south on Hwy-191, the Gallatin Gateway. Beautiful mountains on both sides, a river running alongside the road, sunshine reflecting off the water—the picture I took while we were driving doesn’t do the scene justice.

    That place makes good bread as well. We bought several loaves while we were staying in Montana, good stuff.
