Road Trippin’

Spur of the moment road trips are some of our best. Two days after Christmas and all of our company had gone home I sat in my chair thinking “self, you should pack up and head over to the farm.” A quick call to my sister-in-law and out the door we went 90 minutes later.

Roads were less than stellar. To get from the lake house to the farm one must travel along US 2 over Marias Pass. It’s a beautiful drive. Parts are windy and steep while others are flat and surrounded by tall trees. But snow and ice covered roads in my rear wheel drive rollarskate¬†of an XTerra (lovingly called Space Waster) was not my smartest idea. Even in her new snow shoes the XTerra was slipping a bit.

Thankfully we arrived safely and had a lovely visit. Coming back the roads were quite a bit better and I noticed a really cool area between Hungry Horse and Columbia Falls Montana. I’m sure this is the work of some kids with Kool-Aid packets, but none-the-less it’s fun.

These were the improved roads. Montana is just beautiful.
