Montana History & Culture
I'm traveling the U.S. with my husband and we're in southeast Montana now. This is my first trip to Montana and since we've been here, I've done a couple of things I've never done before.
I like the birdhouses on the fence posts and the Montana made huckleberry ice cream sandwich they give you when you arrive at the 7th Ranch RV park, in Garryowen, where we're staying.
From our campsite, I ran 6 miles on some hills dotted with pink cone flowers yesterday. Today, I ran 8 miles and saw prairie dogs and a loose white horse on the road. That horse looked so big so I u-turned - didn't know if he'd want to befriend me or what. After the run, I sat outside and finished off my ice cream sandwich with some milk for a perfect 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein.
We heard it was a good one, so today we visited the Big Horn County Museum in Hardin where you can walk inside the old buildings that were relocated to the museum. I don't have running shoes to sell, but how about some dress fabric?
Yesterday, we saw a battle reenactment of Custer fighting the Indians at the real battle location on the banks of the Little Big Horn. They played the Garryowen tune you've probably heard before (hear it here). Garryowen is the town where we're staying now. After 2 hours in 95* heat, I was drenched, but it was worth it.
Coming up on our RV trip from Texas, we're heading towards cooler (I hope) Canada!
