Quick trip up western South and North Dakota, then west to find Glendive, Montana, home of my friends Bob & Julia Klein

 

Sweet Retirement

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Go west, old man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The largest area of the battlefield

 

Many veterans of later wars are also interred here

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The infamous "Last Stand Hill"

 

No, he's not really buried there

 

 

 

The Little Bighorn River

 

The most depressing photo of my trip

 

 

 

 

The Three forks of the Missouri, between Billings and Missoula

 

 

 

 

I just had to feel the water in that special river

Riding into Missoula to find my friends Bill & Mary Muse (aka The Two Muses)

 

Missoula at night

 

Mary books the university concerts & brings in beginners like this. Some guy named James Taylor is next month

 

Mary, Bill's Dad, & Bill

 

 

 

 

Bill's dad saw me off the next morning

 

Flathead Lake. I made a last minute decision to go through Kalispell to visit my friend Jack Gladstone.

 

 

Didn't find Jack, but it was still a beautiful ride
