Third Time Works

Winston, Montana
Canyon Ferry/Townsend KOA

Bill pulled out of Dick's RV a little after 8 am.  We wanted to be near Helena for a 10 am tour.

The first time we were in Helena there were terrible lightning storms and we decided to cancel our plan for the Gates of the West boat tour.  This year I routed us straight through Helena on our way to Alaska so we could take the tour.  However, it was too early in the season and they weren't running the boat tours.  No problem, we came back the same way and finally took the tour.


We were glad our two hour tour started at 10, as the weather forecast predicted 90 temps.  It was a nice tour, but I thought there would have been more history about Lewis and Clark.







It was a long hot climb back up to the RV parking area.


Even though the sun was out, the smoke was bad as we drove into Helena.  It didn't get any better as we drove to Winston.  




We pulled into the Canyon Ferry/Townsend KOA around 2.  



Jim and Sandi came over and we visited until dinner time. We never seem to run out of things to talk about.   Sandi joined us for dinner in nearby Winston and Jim stayed with the dogs.

    1. It's a much prettier state than it looks this summer. Everything is brown and the smoke hinders the beautiful scenery.

    1. I just didn't want to pass it up again. I didn't make reservations so was happy to see that they took out two boats for the 10 tour.

  4. I didn't realize there were so many fires in Montana too. The smoke looks terrible.

    1. We were told that Helena had four fires. All the crops are destroyed because of the drought.

    1. We always seem to manage to hook up. Sometimes it's harder when they are in AJ.
