I woke up to low clouds partially covering the surrounding mountains. I grabbed two pictures, one of the view and one of where I slept for the night.
Today’s truck stop shower was a bit of a backtrack, but not far. After that, I stopped at Quiznos for a sandwich and then continued heading East on I-90. I decided to stop in Bozeman and visit The Museum of the Rockies for the dinosaur exhibit.
While driving, I passed several peaks that had snow on them. At one point I was high enough in elevation to briefly pass a small amount of snow on the ground. I grabbed a few pictures of mountains in the distance with snow on the peaks.
I stopped for the night in Billings. I needed to do laundry so I asked about using the facilities in the local hotel, The Big Horn Resort. The woman working the front desk offered a discount on their lowest rate room if I would like to stay in the hotel, instead. She also provided a coupon for a drink at The Montana Club across the parking lot. I accepted the offer. My laundry is drying as I type this from the hotel room. 🙂 The Montana Club had good food and a great bartender. I showed him the free drink coupon and he offered a flight of 5 beers for the coupon. He then selected five beers based on my preferences and I ended up liking them all. Dinner was a small salad and a piece of lasagna.
Tomorrow I’ll be heading into Wyoming and possibly into South Dakota. I opted to skip Yellowstone. It’s too big to just go for an afternoon and I didn’t feel like spending several days there. I will probably visit Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.
