Where I stayed
Missouri Headwaters State Park at Three Forks, MT
Porter and I played some dice and we rotated seats several times throughout the day
We took quite a bit of time stopping at the Painted Canyon and Medora so decided we had to drive later than usual in order to get far enough that we could still make it to Twisp, WA the following evening. We are delivering my brother Jerome's basket of goodies that he won in the raffle at the Thiel Reunion. He had ridden his motorcycle to ND so couldn't take it back with him. I knew we were going to be taking Kristin, Anthony and Porter to Port Townsend and thought it would be a good excuse to drive the North Cascade Highway in WA which we traveled through by train but never driven.
We found a Montana state park that was near Three Forks, MT but didn't realize it would be dark by the time we got there. We got off the Interstate, ended up missing the turnoff to the campground within the State Park, drove through some plant site and fortunately found a place large enough for the camper to turn around and get back to where we started! The campground host heard us come in (that diesel is sooooo loud it would wake anyone!) and came out. She very nicely pointed us to a spot we could park and we all crashed for the night.
