Day Two: Coeur d'Alene to Bozeman
This was a long drive, and we stopped at Fort Missoula on the way. The country changed pretty dramatically after Coeur d'Alene, and also the sun came out.
The 75-mph speed limit makes the drive take less time, but it's hard to get good pictures going that fast!
We ate lunch in Wallace, nestled - literally - against the mountain

I remember these from my childhood - but I haven't seen one in forty years!

The GPS took us off the freeway for the last 20 miles - I don't know why! Here's a town we passed through.
