Helena, MT

We got up to a temperature of 34 degrees this morning! Frost on the ground and snow on the mountaintops!! The snow actually fell yesterday afternoon. We have a gorgeous view of these mountains out the window of our 5er. Needless to say, it was a little chilly but so nice after all the heat back home!!

After having a very large breakfast at a local restaurant in Deer Lodge this morning, we decided to take a ride to Helena, MT which was a drive of about 60 miles. Saw some beautiful mountains along with ranches and farms on the drive there. Did a little shopping, mostly for Cheyenne. Had to get her a winter coat and some new chew toys since she had torn up all the others we had gotten her. She has been having a blast with them since we got back.

We took some pictures today but none are very good so will not share those……

Tomorrow we are planning to do some chores and cleanup in preparation for leaving Thursday morning for Idaho Falls. It’s actually quite a long list but mostly very quick simple things we need to do. So, since there will be no excitement tomorrow, I may not update again until after we get to our next destination.

Stay tuned!!


  1. Wow! Now those temps are a bit chilly. I bet it feels really good after all the heat we've had this summer. I also bet the snow was neat.

    Travel safely!!
