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…

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



A closer look…


Here are some other of his drawings…





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.

Enjoying Indian cultures is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
