Where has the time gone?!?! It’s the end of October and I haven’t even finished posting about July and the rest of the trip to Seattle. Well, here is one more post of pictures as we traveled across Montana with a stop in Missoula and then Billings. After Billings, we stopped in Idaho to say hello to family & friends. We leave Idaho on the 14th of July, getting to our RV spot for the winter in Issaquah late in the afternoon, I have to head to work the next day for the first time in 5 YEARS!

 

I don’t remember doing much in Missoula, MT other than relaxing and getting a good nights sleep. I was looking forward to getting to Billings so that we could try out another great brewery, Montana Brewing Company. I had asked my niece about where to go, she stayed in Missoula for awhile, but she and her husband also knew a brewer that had moved from Bend, OR to Billings, so we had to try it out.

I asked to see if Evan was there that day, he was the brewer that my niece knew. He was, he came out and we chatted for quite awhile. He makes some great beer, I would recommend giving it a try!

 

As we traveled from the Black Hills to Missoula, we crossed some beautiful country. Here are a few shots that I took from the RV as we were driving down the road.

We had a really short trip from Billings to Hayden, ID, which gave us some time to catch up with family & friends. We spent the night in our favorite camp spot, the Bolam’s driveway. They are so generous with letting us stay awhile, use their electric, water & bath facilities. They also let us invite our daughter and grand-kids down to visit. Can’t ask for better friends.

It was a short visit but a wonderful stop. Had lots on my mind, thinking about going back to work so this was a great way to relax and take a break! Thanks again everyone for everything!
