Our travels took us down highway 287 to I 90. The winds were terrible. Heavy winds with even heavier gusts. We did pass a travel trailer on its side. There were warning signs on many sections of the highway.
We made a brief stop at the rest area near Park City since the other ones were closed.
Sandie and Jim Dixon stayed another day in Billings when they heard we were coming through. She said we could stay overnight at Cabela's. We pulled into Cabela's and they have a very nice section with RV parking along with a kennel and horse pen. And they also had a sign that said no overnight parking.
I called Sandie when we arrived and they said they'd be right over to pick us up. Before they even got there the police came by.
We enjoyed lunch with Jim and Sandie and as usual the time went by too quickly. I forgot to give them the treat I had in my purse for the girls.
I called 7th Ranch near Bighorn National Park and made a reservation for later in the day. Bill kept saying the whole way that he was looking forward to his ice cream they always give you when you check in.
You could imagine the buffalo roaming this area.
Look how the State of Montana displays there pet area. This is doggie language for your pet.
It was hard to choose what kind of ice cream but since we're in Montana I had to pick huckleberry.
Is it just me, but if I call a RV park they always say I better make a reservation because they are almost full? Invariably, those are the ones with a lot of empty sites.
This campground is also a horse motel. We are on the top of the hill at the end and we just saw a truck go by with a buffalo in the back. I wonder if they are going to put it with the horses. Sorry I didn't have a chance to get a picture of it.
