After leaving southeastern Montana, we slowly made our way to Holter Lake near Helena. On the way, my husband and I stopped in Bozeman where I ran 6 miles (and saw loose cows near the farms in the foothills) and we hiked up beautiful Hyalite Canyon to Grotto Falls (pictured) and Arches Falls.
We continued on and when we arrived in Helena, we walked up Mount Helena Trail Ridge to see the city from up high. (Some people have asked about Zoe's red collar. It's a Gentle Leader that prevents her from pulling.)

Then we left Helena for Holter Lake where we camped. Surprisingly, it stays light here until about 9:30 and then daylight comes early - about 5:15. This morning I ran 10 hilly miles at 5:30. I pretty much had the road to myself except for one other runner, two walkers and 8 deer.
