Wahoo, it's time for another Travel Tuesday!!
Today we are heading west from Billings, Montana to Coeur D'Alene, Idaho on Day 8 of our
14 States in 10 Days Road Trip!!
If you joined us last week, you will remember me saying Day 7 was the warmest day of the trip. Well, Day 8 proved to be the coldest, snowiest day!!!
This is what Mama and I woke up to:
Mama got us all ready to go, borrowing a hotel towel to clean off our car!! There was like 87 inches of snow on it
(ok, so maybe 2 or 3)!!
|Mama, I am a Texas Gal....I don't know if I can go potty in the SNOW!!!|
We went out for a VERY quick potty walk. Mama looked at the weather and they said the snow was pretty light and stopped about 50 miles outside of Billings. Mama, being the
Here we are 75 miles outside of Billings and the snow STILL hadn't stopped!!
I don't know Mama, the snow and wind haven't stopped yet.
Maybe we should stay at the rest area for a bit??
We did stop for a little while, but Mama was scared it might get even worse, so we got back on the road to drive out of the storm.
It did get worse when we were going over the big mountains....and Mama said a few HBO words as she drove by 87 foot tall semi trucks.
But, when we got to the other side of the mountain it was like it had never snowed.
It was still a bit chilly and cloudy, but I told Mama that we both needed a walkie to relax, unwind and stretch our pawsies!!
Montana is a very beautiful state when it isn't snowing!!
After another 2 or 3 hours in the car, we started driving through pretty forests!
We all know where there are trees, there are
It looks like those squirrels were having a blast, just look at all those pine cones!!!
I took another little nap as Mama drove the rest of the way through Montana and into Idaho. Before I even woke up, we were at our hotel!!!!
What a difference 9 hours makes!
Instead of cold and snowy like Eastern and Central Montana,
it was 70 degrees with blue, blue skies!!!
After the looonnnnggggg day of dealing with the bad weather, I told Mama a short evening walkie would be just fine.
So after dinner and some TV, we hit the pillows and fell asleep right away!
We hope you had fun on our journey from Montana to Idaho, thanks so much for sharing it with us! If you missed any part of our journey you can click HERE or on the Travel Tuesday Tab at the top of the page to catch up!!
