The weather and the scenery were spectacular all day. The temperatures easily got into the 80's, maybe higher. Since I had made such good time the first few days, I decided to take it a little easier and stop and take a few more pictures. But I was quite disappointed that Montana doesn't have any "scenic lookouts" where you can legally stop on the freeway like many other states or provinces. Shame.
I stopped for the evening at St. Regis, Montana, mostly because I was feeling the effects of the heat and needed to call it a day.
My total for the day? 643 miles (>1000 km), leaving me about 6 hours (400 miles) of driving to Seattle the next day. My sons won't be home from work until past 6:00 pm, so that should give me a more leisurely day of driving.
My travels today:
Montana, with the Rockies in the distance:

Unfortunately there is no Internet access at my sons' home (can they be MY kids???), so the blog entries may be on hold for awhile...
