Friday was rainy all day but Saturday we finally had a beautiful, warm sunny day.

Unfortunately, Saturday was our last day in the lower 48 before crossing the border into Canada so the morning was spent taking care of all the last minute things we need to do before continuing our trek north.

Once the chores were done we took a tour along the Missouri River on River Road. A busy walking and biking trail runs beside the river. A huge city park near the river was filled with families enjoying the beautiful day. Several parking areas along the road offer great view of sights along the river.

Our drive began at the Welcome Center where a statue honoring Lewis and Clark overlooks the confluence of the Sun and Missouri River. Blondie enjoyed our stop at the city dog park where she could run and play. We stopped at some of the overlooks to view the falls.

This may be our last post for a while. We will be crossing the border into Canada on Sunday, June 1 and will be staying in two national parks without internet.

  1. Your Great Falls pictures are beautiful… I’m glad you had a sunny day for sightseeing and taking care of business. Did you and Henry go to Alaska a few years back with Crowells, or is this your first trip? Have fun in Banff… My main memory from 41 years ago there is of the black flies. Good luck with the insects up there!!

  2. Mebbe those 3 geese are the same 3 Canadian geese that feed in our yard a lot!

    Sounds like a great trip!

  3. The Lewis and Clark museum in Great Fall is absolutely the best! A must see. Also the Charlie Russell Art Museum.
