Browning, Montana (GA609)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
Sadly Mary is struggling with health issues. To see the latest about her situation, click here

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort in Manteca, California. I’m scheduled to depart here April 17th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted September 13, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 35 miles from Cut Bank to Browning, Montana.

 

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.

 

Along the way we saw our first glimpse of the Rocky Mountains about 50 miles distant. Look closely at the far horizon…

Browning holds a very interesting record… From January 23, 1916 to January 24, 1916, the temperature fell 100°F (56°C) from 44°F (7°C) to -56°F (-49°C). This is the United States and also the world record for the greatest temperature change in 24 hours.

Browning is also the largest community on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. You can read all about Browning by clicking this link… http://browningmontana.com/

Despite the no photography policies of the two places, I still managed to get some nice photos of some great work and got to meet the artists as well!

We parked overnight in the lot behind the museum. This photo will also serve as a quasi for my usual dinette window photo as the view would be the same more or less…

Yesterday was a decent day. 79 degrees…humidity still far to high. Today’s forecast 87 degrees. YUCKITTY!

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

Browning, Montana

The motorhome is now parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort along the bank of the Skykomish River in Monroe, Washington. I’ve been here a number of times over the past years and always enjoy it here. My scheduled departure date is September 23rd.

I’m just hanging out taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

Mary’s personal to-do list plate, which can only be handled by herself, continues to over-flow. I’ll next likely see her when I arrive at her home in mid-October. A friend recently expressed a concern about the status of our relationship. Not to worry…it continues to function per our original agreement when we met in October, 2008. That is…I remain on the road and she will join me when her other life allows. We talk every day on the phone…sometimes more than once. It’s just the way life is!

A more relaxed mode…After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, I have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months I will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless I do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

Today’s Subject…Browning, Montana…

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.

We unexpectedly came upon a herd pf Buffalo and no place to pull over. Mary grab her camera and shot this photo with her camera set on the wrong setting…

I doctored it up as much as I could then decided…let’s really make this look like long ago, so I turned it into a black and white photo…

After more than 1,000 miles of crossing the Great Plains where trees are few to be found, it felt a little strange to be among so many trees once again…

Now in the Rockies, we ran alongside the Flathead River…

We arrive at Glacier National Park…

We ended up in a nice pull-thru site. No utilities at the individual sites. With our Golden Age Pass camping is $10 a night. We’ll be here for two nights…

It’s so pretty here, it’s hard to take a bad photo…

This was one of my funnest days ever as a photographer. I really enjoy shooting colors, reflections, shapes and patterns that result in abstracts. On land, everything remains static. On water, everything is constantly changing. Here are some of the photos taken during the cruise…
