On Day 37 last summer we were driving back into Ontario heading for home. We are just leaving Washington State on Day 37 this summer and heading into Idaho. We will be in Idaho briefly as we cross the panhandle and then enter Montana. A brief visit still counts as a visit, and I can add Idaho and Montana States to our Visited States Map.
We were welcomed into Idaho by this welcome sign.
The Interstate follows a large river as we drive across the Idaho Panhandle, lots of big trees and rock cliffs.
We were welcomed into Montana by this sign.
Montana’s state slogan is Big Sky Country. We saw lots of big blue sky as we drove across the State to as far as Gardiner Montana.
For an Interstate, I-90 through Montana is very scenic. Here are some samples of the scenery that we saw.
And some samples of the big sky that gives this State its nickname.
We arrived in Gardiner Montana around 7pm after a long day of driving, but that puts us in a good position for our next two days as we visit Yellowstone National Park. The North entrance to the Park is only 1 mile south of Gardiner MT.
To see all of our photos from today, you can see them on my FLICKR site.
