I have become fascinated with trains the last two days. I love to hear them whistle, especially, when you can't see them first. Being close to them you can hear the freight train chuga-chuga sound. In an odd way, very peaceful and comforting - unless you live by the tracks, I guess.
Today was also our first day on the interstate. It was not too bad really. Part of one of the sections was closed to traffic, so we had it to ourselves for 5 miles or so. Lon tries to get us off onto more scenic roads as often as possible, so most of the time we were only on it for 3-5 mile intervals.
Saw what I think was a chipmunk today - or maybe a really cute rat. There were also more osprey nests in several spots along the way.
First train today - notice the mountain on the left and the Clark Fork River on the right
I like barns too
Clark Fork river - you never tire of it
Okay, I really like barns
Headed up a decent hill, I see this oddity behind me, I pull off and as the truck passes me, the intertube thingy flys off the truck. Had I not pulled over, it would have hit me in the head!
Tomorrow is another long day to Butte, MT. Thanks again for reading and posting comments!
