Strawberry Hills, Miles City, MT I and II

The end of vacation is always a mixed emotion time - you are a little sad to have a great time end, but by the same token it's great to be back home and ready to face the work week. We had a great time visiting eastern MT and our son and family. I am attaching some photos of the Miles City area...there is this beauty to the sparse hills that are magnificent in their color and shapes.
After we left the kids on Thursday, we headed for Glacier Park. We experienced a first class, you can't see to drive and have to get off the road, cloud burst of a magnitude that I haven't seen for a long time...Les was amazed, never having witnessed a MT cloud burst. Kalispell and Glacier were beautiful. I had forgotten that the mountains are really in full bloom this time of year - how late the season is at 6000 feet. The Going to the Sun hwy is a masterpiece of work. Currently there is some repairs being done which restricted traffic to one lane. A treat it was atop Logan Pass 6000+ ft elevation to see 5 mountain goats - 3 kids and 2 adults.
Next week it's back to the grind...I have a wealth of reference photos new from the trip!
