It’s Sunday. Most places are closed, but we found the Book Exchange was open and had a look around. We had breakfast and then drove on to Bozeman. The first snow of the season was today.
The drive to Bozeman was a bit scary because the roads were covered in snow and slush and people were still driving past at 80mph!
We reached Bozeman by 4pm, and checked into the Bozeman Inn. We did some laundry and had supper across the road at Applebees later on. I decided to order two starters thinking it would be lighter. I was wrong.
This morning Iona took us for brunch with Catrin and Brad at their house. We found out that Ben and Tyler are in university in Boise and Moscow, so we could well have passed them on the street and not even known! JJ stayed in bed almost the entire time we were at the house, but we said hi as we left.
It was a really lovely day. Having not really seen them in my adult life, I never really knew that much about them.
We went back to Iona’s and spent a bit more time there, eventually leaving around 3pm. We had a quick stop at an internet cafe to check weather forecasts in Yellowstone, and drove to Missoula.
We arrived around 8pm, checked into a motel and went for dinner at the Cracker Barrel. There was also a store already bedecked with Christmas gifts and decorations. I bought Mum the most awesome decoration: a singing snowman who grows and then shrinks, saying “I’m melting!”.
