The ride across Montana was really quite beautiful which surprised me. There were lots and lots of cattle ranches. You can still see some mountains in this photo but as the day wore on, we were seeing why it was called Big Sky Country; There were stark plains with intense blue sky - very few trees to block the view. It changed somewhat again as we neared South Dakota and we started seeing the rocks and trees again.
All of these photos were taken through the windows of the car while we were driving. As the scenery was pretty consistent, didn't seem much point in stopping to take photos!
Our next stop will be the Badlands, then onto Mitchell, South Dakota for the night. We are officially on our way back home now. Our only remaining planned stops are Kansas City Missouri, Missouri Star Quilt Company, St. Louis, Missouri and Albertsville, Alabama.
