Where I stayed
Missouri Headwaters State Park
Highway 41 from Dillon is a calm, scenic and beautiful drive. We saw little fauna and not a lot of colorful flora, but it was a good trip nonetheless.
We pulled into the Ford/RV dealer at about noon and met up with our guy Bruce. He showed us a 2008 Four Winds Hurricane, thirty feet in length. We closely checked it out and decided that we could live with it. It's not overly impressive and is lacking some of the amenities we'd like, but it does have a nice spacious living area
The man who makes the decisions is off work today, so the Bruce Guy checked our our current ride, took some notes, took some pictures and asked me some questions. He'll call us in the AM and let us know the "verdict."
Rather than hang out in town, we drove toward Helena to Trident, which is near the metropolis of Three Forks. Here the Gallatin, Madison and Jefferson rivers converge near the Missouri Headwaters State Park. We'd been here a few decades ago in our Westfalia VW Kamper, but it surely has changed! There are twenty five dry campsites especially designed for larger RVs.
We went to the sign-up cabin and were greeted by a very congenial young woman who made us feel right at home. We had parked in Site 15. The cost...what with being over 62 and Montana Citizens/Residents, is was a paltry six dollars. No water, electricity or sewer, but a beautiful, level campsite is ours until tomorrow. Whatta deal!
I took only a couple of shots, since the flora hasn't appeared in its colorful form yet
I'll post the photos here, but still appreciate you checking out http://www.flickr.com/photos/ralphieboyo from time to time. Who knows? Perhaps we'll both see something new to us.
We may be home tomorrow, but we're both slowly adjusting to Montana. There's still a few spots to camp between here and Helena...heh, heh, heh.
