Hellgate Campground Helena, Montana- August 14 to 21, 2022

On Sunday, August 14, 2022 we traveled 227 miles from Devil Creek Campground near Essex, Montana to Hellgate Campground (Hmmmm I’m seeing an uncomfortable trend here…), about 25 miles east of Helena, Montana. This was more of a “get some things done” stay for the week as opposed to isiting any particular destination. There was …

Museum of the Plains Indian- August 12, 2022

Thursday, August 11 was a “do nothing” day for us. We did hope to see the full moon that night from our campsite, but it was too cloudy and overcast. Friday, August 12, 2022 we drove the 30 miles or so back into Browning to get Voyager filled up with gas, find a cell connection …

Glacier National Park – East Entrance Going-to-the-Sun Road – August 10, 2022

After driving the Going-to-the-Sun Road from West to East on Tuesday August 9, 2022 so we could see the sun rise, we decided to drive it from East to West on Wednesday, August 10 so we could see the sun set. This meant starting later in the day, so we relaxed and recharged during the …

Walking Bella at Devil Creek Campground – August 9, 2022

After our drive from the West Entrance of the Going-to-the-Sun Road to the East Entrance, we returned to Nomad at the Devil Creek Campground in the Flathead National Forest. Since we had been up MUCH earlier than our normal wake-up time that day, we decided a nap was in order. Aw, who am I kidding? …

Glacier National Park – Saint Mary Visitor Center – August 8, 2022

Monday, August 8, 2022 we were on a mission. One of the highlights of visiting Glacier National Park is to drive on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. I had done so when I visited here several years ago while working in Montana and I really wanted Cindy to experience that drive as well. There is ONE big …

Back in the U.S., Back in the U.S., Back in the U.S. of A – August 7, 2022

Sunday morning, August 7, 2022 we packed everything up, tore everything down and prepared to leave Canada. Milk River, where we were staying for our last few nights in The Great White North, was only about 15 miles from the Canada/U.S. border crossing in Coutts/Sweetgrass. But, before we could leave Milk River, we had a …

Milk River, Alberta – August 5-6

Friday and Saturday, August 5th and 6th were pretty quiet days for us. We took Bella for a walk over to the Milk River Travel Information Centre which has been closed and remains closed.

Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park – Milk River, Alberta – August 4

When we arrived at Under Eight Flags Campground the previous day, the campground manager gave us some information on a nearby grocery store and Truck/RV Wash (both Nomad and Voyager were filthy from our drives through Canada and Alaska). She also told us about the Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park and their hoodoos (a tall, thin spire …
