Cut Bank, 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…Cutback, Montana…

Browning, Montana

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/

First stop was at the Museum of the Plains Indian. It was very interesting, but unfortunately it has a no photography policy. You can read about the museum by clicking their official website link… http://browningmontana.com/museum.html

But, in an adjourning two rooms were two displaying artists. First was…

On duty in the gift shop was another artist happy to show me his work. John Isaiah Pepion has a website at http://pepionledgerart.com/

He does ink and oil-based colored pencil drawings on old ledger paper as a background…

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.

Cut Bank, Montana

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 42 miles from Chester to Shelby, Montana.

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

More of very light traffic coming into Shelby…

We went to Bryan’s Automotive Service where, with the help of proper testing equipment, he corrected the previous guys two wiring errors on the umbilical cord from the motorhome to the Bronco. I checked twice to make sure everything is working properly this time…including the charging of the Bronco battery. One hour and $85 later we were on the road again…

In this next photo you see the Great Northern Railroad Train on the right. Highway 2 parallels the tracks for many miles…sometimes as little as 50 feet from the roadway. The tracks came first in 1891 and Highway 2 in the mid-1930’s…

Arriving in Cut Bank 23 miles later, we did a little scouting out of potential overnight parking places then went to the Glacier County Museum where is took the following photos…
