We looked up in the mountain as we started the climb out of Butte Montana, and there was Our Lady of the Rockies. Whether you are Catholic or not you have to feel that there is something to Mary looking down over an industrial city, and perhaps she imparts some safety on those who work below her.
She is the fourth tallest statue in the United States.
The snow was still showing up in the high country. The roads were bare and dry though.
We stopped in Helena at Costco to get a few things and for Harold and I to try all the samples. There were some good ones today!! The best one was Tide Pods!! The girls were over asking the lady if this was a taste test!! I hope not. lol It gave us the laugh of the day, but on the other hand, although we don't understand it, there is a scary use of this product.
The samples only got our appetites going. While the girls finished up Harold and I went for the $1.50 hot dog and drink. What a deal. The hot dogs are huge and the drink is refillable.
We headed off for Great Falls and as we were getting closer, we broke out into nice what I call typical Montana country. Although the mountains are beautiful, when it comes to driving, the prairies are much easier.
We got all parked up at Walmart again and went in to talk to customer service. What friendly people. The lady welcomed us and told us we could stay 2 nights if we wished. I still haven't found a Walmart that rejected us. I guess my day will come.
The rest of the afternoon was absolutely gorgeous here and we enjoyed it fully. The girls went shopping again and H and I visited Walmart and did some dog walking.
Here is the view out our window today:
