Susan was awake by 5 am due to the assortment of varied bird calls. She can’t imagine a more beautiful way to be awoken and so much better than by highway traffic or shoppers at Wal-mart. Aime slept in till 7:30 and after a leisurely start, we headed to Hardin Historical Museum and Visitors Centre. This was a 22 acre museum site that had Indian artifacts , photos, and tons of historical bldgs. They included a school house, train station, gas station, store, large farm workers quarters, kitchens, saloon, and tons of vintage farm equipment and cars. For those of you who are familiar with Okeefe Ranch this place was similar but much better. This was all FREE. Stopped in Crow Agency and used a FREE sani dump and water station. Locals informed us that the Battlefield of Little Bighorn was not worth the $10 to go in to as you can see it from the road. We were more interested in looking at the terrain and seeing how the battle would have taken place. Don’t think Custer was too smart as there was no where to hide or take cover. Stopped at Red Shale Forest Camp outside of Ashland, Mt. and had only 3 other tenters in the campground. Lovely setting in the trees with a valley view. It had toilets, picnic tables and fire pits and all for FREE.
