The ‘runners’ would wear buffalo, antelope, or wolf skins and cause entire herds of buffalo to stampede off the cliff. By using logs, the tribes would funnel the buffalo to certain … Continue reading »

There’s Gold In Them Thar Hills!

There’s gold in them thar hills!! That’s what we were told anyway. One of the things I was looking forward to doing in Montana was visiting Virginia/Nevada City. Online it looks so…western!

Helena, MT

Our first impressions of Helena is that it’s kind of small and the city is laid out weird. We went to the Capitol Building…it was a lovely dome building. Here’s a picture of the inside of the dome. There were several stained glass windows, which were very pretty! A dome and stained glass…It’s such a great … Continue reading »

Billings, MT

We recently spent some time in Billings, MT. Billings isn’t a huge metropolis…it only has about 100k residents…but after the teeny tiny towns we’ve been staying in, Billings felt like it was huge! We found an excellent burger place to eat. Although the burgers looked amazing, I opted for one of their house salads. It … Continue reading »

Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

The Little Bighorn Battlefield was a lesson in history for the boys. The Rangers do a great job retelling the story of what happened and the museum has some amazing artifacts. We spent close to five hours here walking the trails, listening to a Ranger Talk and learning about Lt Col. George Custer’s Last Stand. … Continue reading »

Historic Graffiti

What is Pompey’s Pillar National Monument? It is the only place you can be assured to stand in the footsteps of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Clark carved his name in the rock…I guess you could call it historical graffiti. This carving is the only remaining physical evidence of Lewis and Clark’s … Continue reading »
