Not much writing for this day, but a cool stop in this little town that thinks it is a big town. We found it simply by taking a little diversion off the interstate to follow the "business" alternate route.
|It was early, but not too early for a stop at the Soda Fountain store|
|And for Susan, some of the famous, award winning chugwater chili.|
|1876 soda and pharmacy store. Medications once stored here|
|Old fountain and tables adorn|
|A sign found in the restroom. Good rules to live by!|
|Lawn art in one of the yards of town|
|This steakhouse has seen its day, and a newer version has been built on the edge of town|
|It was a stage stop back in the day.|
|Church cum library|
Memorable on our drive through the prairie of Wyoming are all the beautiful antelope we saw along the way. Two or three at time, sometimes a solo one, and other times herds of up to about 20 or so. It must have been the right time of day for us to be driving as there were so many antelope out feeding or wandering for our pleasure.
Landing in Missoula for the afternoon and night, we got to share time with our friends Vickie and Ray. They are gracious hosts and we wish we had more time to stay for a couple more days. But home calls, as does Mary's family gathering in Leavenworth, so we depart this morning. We'll be back Vickie and Ray -- so keep our bed ready ;'-) and thanks for the hospitality.
