Montana Signs…

On our road trip to Yellowstone we got low on gas in an area where there were several exits with “no services”, oops! We finally found an exit with a small 4 pump station across the street from the one convenience store in the very small town of Alberton.

P1060407

As we headed back to the freeway we passed the town’s tavern. I didn’t notice the coffins until I uploaded the photo. I’ve never seen that before.

P1060414Our stop for the night was Missoula, Montana and we saw this sign in the historic downtown area.

Isn’t that a nice idea? We flagged him down and asked about where we might enjoy a refreshing brew and where we could later enjoy a steak. He mentioned one restaurant called The Depot and then when we found the spot he recommended for a brew the proprietor there recommended the same restaurant for steak to us.

The local brew at The Dram Shop was refreshing and our Steak and Panko Veggies at The Depot were very good.

I’m linking up to signs, signs with Lesley.

Today is Wednesday. I have to remind myself of what day of the week it is after a Monday holiday. How about you? The forecast is saying this is the nicest day weather wise this week so you’ll find us out in the yard doing some work.

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.

P1060408

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!
