We crossed the continental divide, which always feels great as we are now officially flowing west.
As we passed through Butte we looked up to see the Our Lady of the Rockies statue that overlooks the town and sits on the Continental Divide. A pretty amazing feat to get it up there. You can read more about her, and see some photos, here. We took photos with the bigger camera and you’ll see one later, when I do our “we finally made it” post.
We also drove through downtown Bozeman, something I’ve never done in my many times through Montana. It’s very cool. Little funky restaurants and shops. Pretty hip looking, but all with a laid back non-hipster vibe.
We are back into the lands of rivers and streams and evergreens. So much water near the highway. We passed over the Blackfoot and the Yellowstone rivers and past many smaller streams. Made me long for my fly rod.
