What a beautiful state. The mountains are gorgeous. We traveled East to West, first on Rt94, then on Rt 90. We stayed in the parking lot at Cabella’s in Billings. Then camped in Bozeman and Butte at there respective Hot Springs. Bozeman is a College Town with a bunch of shops downtown to browse. Billings and Butte are working towns and in my opinion are not worth exploring.
In all of our travels, the campground at the Hot Springs west of Butte is one of our all time favorites.
We experienced all types of weather in Montana. Heat close to 100, Cold in the mid 30’s. Rain. Snow on the Mountain Tops. High wind gusts. Dust storms with Tumble Weeds.
I learned that driving the COW in 22 degree winds is no fun. Like ride a bucking bronco that you continually have to adjust your steering into the wind to stay on the road.
Attached below are some pictures of our travel.
