I am so glad this part of the trip wasn't so bad. That makes doing it again a step in the right direction. I'm sure you will all be exhausted and sleeping even more on the way home.

Can't wait to see ya and the pics.

Your re-tracing our steps except we turned towards Helena after Drummond. That is where Kyndra got carsick! I wish I had thought to take pictures of that wonderful experience. Can't wait to see the pictures! Have a great time.

My favorite is the Montana State Line!

I love that part of the drive (and not just because of the speed limit).
