There was extra security at the border, at least more than we have seen in the past. One border patrol guard took the paperwork while a second one was opening trunks and checking the undersides of vehicles with a mirror on a stick. We didn't have a trunk so she poked around the bed of the truck. There was a tense moment when she came up with one of our diamond willow sticks, but the guard behind the glass recognized it as diamond willow and said, "It's ok." Whew. No threatened arrests, no bribes were necessary, and we were soon rollin' down highway 15 in Montana
In between cities there's not much to see in Montana. Huge fields of grain that go for miles, occasional groups of antelope too far away for a picture, and once in a great while you might see a tree or a barn - those are rare.
Once again the plan was to stay in Shelby, Montana, but it was only 2:30 by the time we arrived there so we moved on to Havre. Tomorrow we plan to get to Minot, N.D. but who knows...
