Day Three: Bozeman to Glendive
Day three was a long drive across Montana, made longer by our decision to go down to the Little Bighorn National Monument.
First up, the ubiquitous duo of the northwest!
This is the closest we've gotten to seeing a bear (we didn't go):
The Bozeman trail saga was on a sign at a rest stop. It promised us the gravesite "two miles" on the frontage road...
... but we drove ten before we could turn around, and we saw no gravesite - at least nothing marked as one. We did see horses, ranches, and one deer.
This is the Yellowstone River.
The saga of Park City was on a sign at a rest stop. I'm sure the people of Park City didn't appreciate the BN&SF man's pettiness, but from this distance, it's kind of funny.
This is the Rimrock mentioned on the sign:
Off the interstate and heading to the battlefield, we enter Crow Country.
Just off the road and in front of the monument entrance, this: a church and a casino.

We stayed there too long to make it to Glendive before dark. It's a long flat road, though, easy to drive.
Lights in the darkness!
