We woke up this morning to a clear sky with a lot of NW winds coming off lake Superior, temperature in the high 50's. Walked down to the Brockway Inn and Coffeehouse. After 1,300 miles, finally got some great tasting coffee. No Starbucks in this north country.
First stop for the day, top of Brockway Mountain. What a view! and what a wind! …
Drove into Great Falls, stayed at Terrace Motel, maybe first motel I've used since leaving home. Cleaned up and was able to contact by phone Bonnie Park, my friend John's former love. But she said she was involved with some divorced guy and couldn't see me. Sob. Really liked her.
