Another beautiful day for riding. Crystal clear and cool as we left Great Falls and headed for our first excursion on the Missouri River at Gates of the Mountains, just 20 miles north of the capital, Helena.
They have a 2 hour boat tour that took us through an area of the Missouri River that is relatively unchanged since the time of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
It has some similarities to the Wisconsin Dells, in that some of the rock formations had names. Our favorite was the Canyon Monster. Scary, right?
Yesterday we had passed by the Bear Paw Mountains and the Highwood Mountains. Today we were among the Big Belt Mountains and the Tobacco Root Mountains on the east and the Pioneer Mountains to the west. One of the peaks had an unusual look to it because the peak was flat.
