Day #1 Roadtrip Postcards

P1060392

We left home while it was still dark and headed east over the Cascade Mountain Range and then through Central and Eastern Washington on Interstate 90.

We entered Idaho at Post Falls with a quick stop at Cabela’s for some binoculars.

We then entered Montana just past Lookout Point. We were on empty at this point and hoped we’d find an exit that didn’t say “no services”. We made it to a small town with a couple pumps and added a few gallons before our stop in Missoula for a fill up at Costco and a stop for the night.

Missoula County Court House, Missoula, Montana.

We’ll hit the road early again tomorrow to reach Yellowstone National Park.

We are enjoying one of Louise Penny’s Inspector Gamache mysteries on cd as we drive along. A very pleasant way to make the time fly on the road!

  1. Hi Ellen,

    Great “picture postcards” — I love this idea!! I think the third picture is wonderful; I see why they call it “Big Sky” country. 🙂

    I love the Inspector Gamache mysteries!! I read several of them over the winter this year. It sounds like you’re having a nice trip so far — wishing you and the Mr. a wonderful weekend and safe travels.

    Hugs,

    Denise
