We left Wenatchee at 8:00 a.m. this morning. We hit a huge dust storm in Moses Lake, then I fell asleep in Spokane, so I missed the first nice part of the trip. I slept right threw Couer d'Elene, which is too bad because I hear the lake is beautiful. I woke up right before the sign welcoming us into Montana. :-)

We were thinking we would be stopping in Missoula for the night, but we got there at 4:00 Missoula time and still have a couple hours left in us. So, instead, we got out, had lunch, laid out in the shade and took the dogs for a walk. It was a nice break.

We got back on the road and drove to Bozeman. We got a nice inexpensive motel with Wifi (yay!), just ordered dinner (delivered) and are now getting organized for the night. We're going to try to get up early again and get a good start on the day. We will be driving through Yellowstone tomorrow.

It's been a good trip so far. Car has been reliable and comfortable and the scenery has been mostly entertaining. Although we haven't seen one stitch of wildlife. What is this?? Seriously, we're in Montana, shouldn't the elk and bear be welcoming us at the borders??

Hopefully good wildlife pictures tomorrow.
