  • Day20

    Little Bighorn National Monument

    August 23, 2017 in the United States

    Took a break during our 11 hour drive from Glacier to Devil's Tower to stop and learn about Custer's last stand against the Lakota and the Cheyenne warriors. Custer lost his life and that of more than 260 soldiers, while the Indians lost about 100 in June, 1876. It was one of the last armed efforts by the Northern Plains Indians to preserve and protect their nomadic way of life. Gold was found in 1874 on the Indian's designated land and Americans wanting that gold broke the 1868 Fort Laramie treaty enraging the Indians. Peace could not be made and the army was called in to maintain order. The Indians won this battle, but lost the war.Read more

  • Day26

    Racing from the sun

    May 28, 2016 in the United States

    This is here only because I wanted to take a picture of the sun behind me. I stuck my camera out the open side window aimed backwards. The glint in the distance, under the sun, is Tongue River. Position is close to the Montana/Wyoming border just before Hanging Woman Creek. Colourful waterway names, but somewhat creepy.

    Mist

    August 30, 2017 in the United States

    Can you see the mist? It had been 92ish on the highway. In the high plains it seems to me that it doesn't start to cool down until the sun is really low, like 6ish. Around 6 today the sun went behind some clouds. The combination dropped the temperature all of 10 degrees. Very quickly any area with actual vegetation got a mist around it.

  • Day12

    Big Horn, Hardin Montana

    June 25, 2014 in the United States

    The town of Cody took its name from Bill Cody, better known as Buffalo
    Bill. The town is like a hub for things country and there was plenty going on in this great little place. Given it's history we decided to take in a couple of the things on offer and put in some miles late in the day rather than leave early.

    First up we rode up to Old Trail Town, a recreation of the old western town on the site of the original Cody. A brilliant museum of all things from the time. Those pioneers did it tough, in small homes in a society that was equally as harsh. Had me a go at lasso work with a proper lariat, instructed by some young fellas up from Texas, well at least I hit the target!!!

    We then spent 4 hours at the Buffalo Bill Centre of the west, this contains exhibits of natural history about the land and the animals, The Bill Cody exhibit dedicated to the life and times of Bill Cody, A fire arms museum, and exhibit dedicated to the Indian struggle and history of their
    existence. This centre is fantastic and is an absolute must see, Bill Cody was a fascinating man, Entertainer, Raconteur, and Buffalo Hunter. he made a lot of money and died basically penniless.

    We left Cody at three and hit out for the Custer battle field area, to get there we crossed the Big Horn Range and again you could not stop thinking of the struggles of those pioneers. Finally we rolled into Hardin but the night was restless with possible gunshots ringing out through the night, and the drunken or drug crazed ramblings of a girl in the parking lot certainly no threat to us but it was the first of this that we have seen.

    Tomorrow we have a short run down down the road at the Little Big Horn battlefields where Custer and the 7th Cavalry took on the might of the American Indian. We are looking forward to this.

    Little Bighorn

    Here's where a small number of soldiers killed many native persons. Or was Little Bighorn where Custer's hubris got his troop wiped out? Anyway, its all cows and trailers now.
