Anxious to depart for home after 44 days in pretty tight quarters, we were up early and departed RedRock RV Park at 7 AM. We crossed the continental divide at Targhee Pass, leaving Idaho for the last time, and entering Montana. We drove north through West Yellowstone towards Bozeman, seeing friend Mike in oncoming traffic just north of West Yellowstone in a construction zone; we’re sure he was headed to Hebgen Lake to fish for Gulpers. At Bozeman, we found ourselves on Interstate 90, and began a long drive west to near Garryowen, MT, turning onto US Highway 212 east. We arrived at our RV park, Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort and Cabins, for the night having traveled 535 miles in parts of 4 states—Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota.
After setting up, we headed immediately for the hot tub, after which we enjoyed real television for the first time since mid-July. Thank goodness for the little things.
