Thursday was primarily a travel day. Before we left and before the rain started, we went to Fort Snelling National Cemetery. Like Tim, Joe does rituals. But, unlike Tim, Joe spends the whole day once a week at the national cemetery.

Friday started out rainy , but cleared eventually and we really felt like we began our vacation.
We found that they grow wildlife big in North Dakota with our first sighting!

We finally saw the real thing, too.


Happened upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The wildlife was up close and personal at the visitors center! And the scenic overlook featured a beautiful vista.

Haven’t had a buffalo burger, yet…..
And, yes, Montana IS Big Sky Country!
