Helena to Glacier
The night was peaceful at our site in the Walmart carpark. It was also convenient, with clean restrooms and the ability to pop in for milk, biscuits or other necessities of life. However, it may not have been as scenic as some of our camps.
Todays breakfast was at Lake Hogan. This was a detour, but a lovely place. It is a lake created by damming the Missouri River and is a very popular recreation area.
The Missouri itself was full of people fishing, many of them in small, unusually curved, dinghies.
During the journey we travelled through the foothills of the Rockies. Most of it was farming country and very dry as they are experiencing very dry spells here as well as record temperatures.
Reaching Glacier it was great to see the green forests and numerous lakes. It is a very scenic location, almost a postcard scene at every head turn.
