We left Moses Lake, MT. and drove along roads that looked like this.

There were very few trees and the roads were very flat. Several hours of driving later the roads began to look like this,

more trees. We stopped and ate lunch in a quaint little town (can’t remember the name) at a place called Smoke House.

After eating we were ready to forge ahead and continued driving. We stopped for the night in Missoula, Mt. home of the University of Montana. It is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains, quite beautiful.

Driving around in the area around our hotel we found The Historical Museum at Fort Missoula. The museum itself was closed for the day but we were able to look at some of the buildings on the grounds and read a little of the history. We spent a little time looking at headstones in the cemetery. Dave is interested in genealogy so often when we travel we end up in cemeteries looking at grave stones.

Although most of our day was spent driving, it was pleasant. Occasionally, my thoughts would drift to my sister and my eyes would get misty, but today, I did not feel as much sadness as I have in the past week.
