Deer Lodge, Montana

We traveled to Deer Lodge yesterday. It was a short travel day from Bozeman and we arrived around 12:30. This is a very small town with not much to offer for sight seeing. We are talking about going into Helena or Butte to see what is available there but mostly planning a lot of R & R. We are staying at Indian Creek Campground which is right on I90 in Deer Lodge. It is a nice park with nice, level campsites.

The landscape did change quite a bit on the way here. We saw some crops growing other than hay, which is a BIG change from Wyoming. And lots of trees are back. They look like fir trees but we are not sure. There are a lot of rolling hills and mountains and lots of sky, even though it was rainy and cloudy yesterday. The low this morning was 41 and it is still cloudy. Charley retrieved our winter clothing from the basement yesterday (good timing). Looks like we are definitely going to need it.

May not be a lot of news for the next couple of days. We are here until the morning of 9/2 and then will be headed to Idaho Falls for a week’s stay. Idaho Falls is a much larger city and we should have a lot to do there. We will be there until time for the kids to join us on 9/11 and then we will be at the Grizzly RV Park at the west entrance to Yellowstone.
