The Trip Home

We had a few days left and were on the homeward bound leg of the trip. We had been told the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody was worthwhile and stopped there.

A friend from the Honda S2000 club knew about our trip and suggested I be sure to go over Beartooth Pass on the way up into Montana. What a great drive! It's a two-lane road and the summit is near 11,000'. The road was bare and dry but there was snow twice the height of my Mustang along side the road. Very twisty and the road is pretty narrow in places. I wondered if anybody had been dumb enough to take a large motor home there.

We ran into sideways rain on the way to Big Timber, MT and were glad to get to The Grand Hotel. Kind of a funky place but I recommend it.

We had one more stop in Coeur d'Alene and stayed at the Flamingo Motel. It's a '60s style place where you park right outside your door. We asked our host if he could recommend a restaurant within walking distance. He recommended The Fork - recently opened. We strolled over and had a wonderful dinner.

One more long drive and we were back home with some very pleasant memories.
