    An iconic section of the Tour Divide. Very steep and slippery.

    Road less taken

    September 7, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Yesterday’s drive from Winthrop to Missoula seemed to be less tiring than our previous drives and we decided that was because the first half of the day was driven off the Interstates: fewer cars, slower speeds, better views. So we selected a route that we had not done before and it was almost a complete success. The last hour was marred a bit by an inconsiderate truck driver who slowed down to 35-40 on every small hill. As there were 3 other trucks behind him, there was no chance to pass. My serenity and equanimity were challenged during that period, but the slow going allowed us to watch the scenery more closely.

    During the drive we saw a mom elk with her baby, pronghorn antelopes, aspen with snowy white bark, and lots of towering outcrops. At least that is what Heather was calling the rocks. I can hardly wait to find out what she calls the rocks in Utah and Arizona.

    Drive through Butte

    April 22, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Butte is a cute town on the side of the the richest hill in the world. Lots of copper, silver, and other metals have been mined here since the late 19th century. The mining continues to this day in one of the largest open pit mines in the world. Originally, the mines were deep mines with a mine head. The mine heads still dominate the sky line of Butte. Much of the landscape has been beautifully restored.Read more

    Butte MT KOA

    April 21, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    We're in a nice spot ... a little close to freeway noise, but beautiful views right from our trailer. We rolled in about 4:00 tired from having driven straight through with no real breaks. (Not the plan, but ... snow.)

    First order of business was a car wash. Between Missoula and Butte, Gordon was commenting on all the pesky bugs dirtying up his windshield when all of a sudden we hit a massive SWARM of GROSS little green bugs with tiny green wings that made a HUGE splat all over everywhere, including on the sides of the car. It sounded like a hail storm and lasted about 30 seconds. The car was a total mess. For a while, Gordon thought the adaptive cruise control sensor was covered because we had trouble with it. Windshield wipers with cleaner only made it worse. Did I say GROSS?

    Then we ate a light dinner with lots of vegetables. It MAY have included a very nutritious citrus something-or-other (lots of antioxidants) with a fluffy white topping (lots of protein). It looked like pie, but it was a vegetable. Trust me.

    It is much cooler here ... a pleasant 72. We were not ready for weather in the 80's so are happy with the change. We have decided to stay here another night and spend tomorrow poking around Butte. We've been through before, but never really explored. There is also a beautiful YMCA 4 minutes from the campground which we plan to check out tomorrow as our fitness routine was very much interrupted in the week before departure.

    The last photo is the front of the car AFTER the car wash! The windshield was better, but only because Gordon helped with the wipers between passes.

    Activity report

    April 22, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    We got the the YMCA this morning! Gordon got to run 3 miles and move some weights around. Heather got to look at the equipment and feel that showing counted as a work out. (Heyyyyyy ... pay no attention. Gordon is angling to have me do all the posts. He is WAY to entertaining to deprive you all, but just take things with a grain of salt, ok?)

    We also took a short walk by the KOA and visitor center. The City of Butte is creating a beautiful network of walking/cycling paths through the town, restoring a lot of natural habitat while they are at it. There are paths up on the hill where the mines are and down on the flats next to the creek.

    Butte - Teil1

    July 23, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Da gehen einem die Superlative aus. Einfach genial der Tag. Phantastische Eindrücke, unfassbar tolle Momente. Szenen wie aus dem Bilderbuch. Und dann haben wir auch noch Spaß dabei. Unglaublich. Josie scannt morgens im Supermarkt wie beim Selfservice ihre Einkaufssachen bis die Verkäuferin kommt und meint das wäre eigentlich ihr Job. Danach ein super Frühstück und ein unvergesslicher Tag im Yellow Stone Nationalpark.Read more

    Anaconda Rest Stop

    September 2, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Okay. That'll teach us. We stopped for a simple exercise and bathroom break at the Anaconda rest stop on I 90. In the course of walking around the parking lot we found a little paved trail. It turned out to be a nature walk through natural preserved Prairie. It was simply gorgeous, and us without a camera. Sorry folks.

    There were myriad prairie grasses with incredible seed heads, countless gorgeous little prairie flowers, a bubbling brook with a bridge over it, remains of an old log cabin, and all surrounded by big sky and distant mountains. And us without a camera.

    But we got a lot of steps in. Up to 6500 already.
