Day 1 The gangs all here

06 Jul

Up and at’um out of Spearfish at 6 am, ok 6:15 am, well maybe 6:30. Heading to Billings to pick up our better halves. Started the day at a nice 70 degrees and did not break 80 until outside of Billings. One threat of rain, on with the rain suits but the rain did not cross out path.

Not much going on since the photojournalist are not here to document the sights.

Into Billings pick up the ladies and off to lunch at the Montana Brewing Company in downtown Billings. We had a table in the back away from the crowds (social distancing). After lunch we loaded up and headed to Red Lodge Montana an then to Rock Creek Resort for the evening. Really quaint hotel located right beside a rushing creek. Helpful note the dining room is closed on Sunday and Monday so back on the bikes an back to Red Lodge (ok it was just 5 miles of beautiful scenery).

At the airport.

After a quick stroll through town we ate at a pizza joint and back to the lodge for games and fellowship. The next morning we met a guy from Boston and chatted awhile. He took our picture then took one with us. We really enjoy meeting interesting folks along the way.

Tomorrow we drive the Bear Tooth Highway, claims to be the most beautiful highway in the U.S. (we will see).

    Wow! We didn’t expect to see our pics in your blog! Exciting for your old folks at home…Bill said he and his family traveled Bear Tooth Highway when he was about 10 yrs. old. He hugged the floor of their ’49 Hudson most of the trip! He coined the word ‘mountain sickness’. The photos of the scenery are fantastic! Thanks for the update of what sounds like a great trip.
