Very pretty views. We might go back later in the year to actually see it GREEN.
In the cave. The pictures are drawn in the wall behind the kids.
Me and my hubby.
And just last weekend we drove about an hour and a half east of us, to the Battle of Little Bighorn (Also known as Custer's Last Stand). It was a really interesting place. We all learned a lot, and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and warm temperatures.
This was a nice sized cemetery for Veterans and servicemen and women. It was a good opportunity to walk among the graves and teach the kids a little about war, sacrifice, freedom, and gratitude.
At the top of the hill. Under this memorial is the majority of the remains of the soldiers who fought along side Col. Custer.
This is where Custer fell, near the top of the hill.
And this is the shot of the hill, taken from the cemetery.
We drove around the area and noticed the graves that dotted the landscape. A sacrifice of good men, for such a foolish decision. We all had a good time, and other than the bout of car problems on our way home, had another successful experience getting to know the great state of Montana.
In the coming weeks (read: when it warms up again!) we will be visiting Pompey's Pillar (a large rock that Lewis and Clark carved their names into), and hope to see Mount Rushmore (6 hours east)and do some camping at Yellowstone (1.5 hours south) this coming summer. So excited about that!!
