no shifting gears
Before I say anything else, I'll just mention I'm not taking any pictures - impossible at highway speeds. You need time and skill to get good photographs and the only times we stop are for the necessities. One quickie mart truck stop looks much like another. I am taking notes, though.
We spent yesterday driving through Montana, an experience that was at least as amazing in parts as the Gorge drive. We crossed the Continental Divide just outside of Butte at nearly 7000 feet and hadn't even realized how high we were because there were mountains all around, followed by huge mountain valleys with rivers and more mountains beyond. Yellowstone looked as though it was a landscape that had been dropped from some magical other planet.
Now we're in Billings getting ready to go to Bismarck, ND. I'll keep my eyes open for you :-)
