    Greqt breakfast at the Hampton Inn visited Black River Falls the first of 5 falls on the missouri river which are now 4 power plants. This one happens to be the first hydroelectric plant in montana and the city of Great falls second name of Electric city next down to Rainbow falls which was only about a 1 mile away a railway bridge was built first there (a information sign had a picture of the bridge and the falls which looked really neat). Ryan falls was the most spectacular which has very high cliffs and a neat island (which was closed), would have been nice to walk around and take some pictures.
    had a slight accident when a lens i was carrying (not very good) fell out of my pocket and rolled a few meters down the hill. At the border there were 2 lines for cars and of course I picked the slowest one, but the border agent gave us a pass and off to CalgaryReplyCancel

Good Morning Las Vegas . … this is what we woke up to early Thursday morning as the sun was just beginning to kiss the horizon. We then paid a visit to the Valley of Fire which we found quite similar to the other Canyons in Utah. Located in the middle of the Moapa reserve […]

    A very ordinary trip for the first 48 miles then you see the red rock. Truly delightful-took a drive and found a rock about 75 feet in height that the Parks Department have built a staircase to. There are some pitcographs that the original peoples carved on the face of the rock about 35 feet up. Do not know how to interpret but the Parks Department has a suggested guide for you. Went to Mousse’s Point or Basin which was used by outlaws as a hiding place and found a very small pool of water at the end of the trail. Carolyn even climbed up the gorge for a wonderful view and then a family from Tennessee helped her descend -very good of them. I then walked to the Ring of Fire site – about a 1.3 mile hike – good walk and wonderful viewsReplyCancel
