Texas To Washington Day 4

So here we are finally at day 4! Our last day out on the road. We had talked about maybe making it to Yellowstone on this trip. But as we were going we kept talking about it and had looked up hotel prices and just decided it wasn’t going to happen on this trip. But Lydia had promised that I would see a buffalo. So when we decided against going to Yellowstone I told Lydia she still had to make good on her promise.

So as we set out on day 4 we were googling bison ranges and things of that nature. We found one outside of Missoula. It’s a drive through park where you get to see lots of buffalo and other animals as well. So we took the detour to go to that. I will say it was well worth it! But not because I got to see buffalo. There were a few small hikes you could take throughout the park and on one of them you get to the top of this little hill and the view off the side was AMAZING! No joke, it was one of my favorite views from the trip. It really just took my breath away. I had it as my phone home and lock screen backgrounds until recently. I could have just sat and looked at the view for hours.

As you will see from how many photos are about to follow, and like I said yesterday in day 3.2 Montana was gorgeous to drive through. I was in awe most of the time. It’s one of those places I want to take an extended vacation to so I just enjoy the beautiful scenery. IMG_4953 IMG_4962 IMG_4994 IMG_5021 IMG_5041 IMG_5073 IMG_5092 IMG_5094 IMG_5098 IMG_5104 IMG_5141 IMG_5145 IMG_5148 IMG_5166This is the view (the above picture) mentioned earlier. I can’t even express how beautiful it is, or why I’m so in love with it!

So this is the only picture we got of it, and it’s not even that good lol.

We got to Lydia’s house around 8pm that night if I remember correctly. The next two days were spent at Lydia’s house. We hung out with her family, went on multiple walks, went horseback riding, and she showed me around the town. Then I had to say goodbye to Lydia and Daphne and fly back to Texas, which was a very sad day!

Thus ends the roadtrip from Texas to Washington that we took back in June! Thanks for reading along and looking at all the pictures!

Texas To Washington Day 3.2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to the 2nd part of day number 3. We packed a lot into our 4 days on the road and it’s been hard to get through one full day in one post.

I ended the last post heading to Devil’s Tower. So that’s where we will start this one. We hiked around the base of the tower and then ate lunch at the bottom in the little cafe there. We stopped at the border between Wyoming and Montana to take pictures. Then we drove and drove. At one point we were entertaining the thought of just driving through the night to make it all the way to Lydia’s house. We had stopped in Billings and there were little to no rooms, and the rooms that were available were like $200. We saw a sign for a smaller town up ahead and called the hotel there to see if they had room. They did so we drove there and stayed the night. So glad we did because that gave us another day to sight see on the road. But that will be in another post :). Enjoy the pictures from day 3.2
