Happy Travel Tuesday!! Thank you for stopping by as I continue my account of our 14 States in 10 Days journey!!
Today our journey takes us west from Fargo, North Dakota to Billings, Montana!
It was a long driving day that took us through some beautiful countryside. This was also the warmest day of the trip as temperatures hit the mid 80's (F)!
"Would you like me to drive today Mama??'"
"BOL....I know, I know, my paws can't reach the pedals...BOL"
We had a nice morning walkie at a beautiful rest area in North Dakota....
It was another windy day...but it was a nice warm breeze, so I didn't mind!
Plus, it kept all the energy windy mills busy!!
Not to mention all the interesting smells the wind brought!!
Soon we were back on the road for a few hours before stopping for lunch at another rest stop.
"Hey Mama...quit taking pictures and come get me! You won't believe what's over there!"
This rest area looked like an old gas station, how pawesome is that??!! The people rest rooms were inside, and the doggie restrooms were around the back!!
Just look at the old pumps!!!
After lunch, Paulie and I took a nap while Mama drove.
When I woke up, we were in Montana!! Mama stopped for gas and saw this abandoned ranch/barn. Mama says this picture reminds her of the "essence" of Montana.
After Mama fueled up, Paulie and I took another nap. As most of you know, traveling and keeping bored Mamas interested and alert is very hard work!!
While Paulie and I were napping, Mama pulled over at a rest area to go potty and took a picture of the beautiful Yellowstone River!
Finally, we made it to Billings!! It was worth the wait because we stayed at another new LQ AND it was right next to a.....
CRACKER BARREL!! Now, I'm not sure exactly what a Cracker Barrel is, but my friend Sugar always stops at them when she is traveling and Mama was drooling a bit at the thought of dinner!!
She called and got hers, "To Go". Alas, she didn't share. It did make her smile when she was eating though, and we all know that Happy Mamas give out more before bedtime snacks!!
After dinner, we got our first bad weather of the trip....Mama said it was because cold air was moving
in and bumping up against the warm air!!
I snuggled real close to Mama so she wouldn't be scared of the thunder, and we fell asleep...
I'm glad we went to bed early because the next day would be the most exciting (weatherwise) of the whole trip!!!!
