Walmart, Great Falls, Montana
Glacier N.P. to Great Falls Montana
Tom's post on the FOTR Forum tonight is below.
Well, as often happens with Wintery weather, we've opted to run away
from the coming Winter Snow Storm Warning for the Glacier NP/Great Falls
area and leave Yellowstone behind (they're calling for accumulations of
5-10 inches over the next couple days). We'll plan better to avoid the
rogue weather that plagues this time of year but, for this year,
Yellowstone isn't going to happen.
Instead, we're headed for a favorite of many - Hart Ranch Resort in
Rapid City, SD for a few days. We're hoping to get there late in the day
Ah, the benefits of the RV lifestyle - wheels to move you out of the way
of bad weather ;-)
We opted to head out after he finished up work today and stayed at Walmart. We needed to pick up a few groceries anyway so it worked out well in that sense. Tomorrow the plan is to get up early and get on the road by 7:00. We have about ten hours of driving in order to get to Rapid City by the time Tom has to work tomorrow night so we'll need to keep moving.
We're feeling a little disappointed about not being able to go to Yellowstone but the snow isn't something we want to have to deal with in the RV.
I'll post pictures later and will try to get the website caught up between Skagway and Glacier National Park caught up as soon as I can. LOTS of pictures.
