We flew up into Montana Saturday morning, about 100 miles north of us here in Wyoming, to get a birds-eye look at some of the flooding on the Musselshell River. Yikes!
The news has been talking about high water, but I wasn’t sure because they also talk about flooding right around my home and there is none. I’m always a skeptic when it comes to the media…but oh boy they are telling the truth about Harlowtown and Roundup Montana.
We landed at Bridger, MT for breakfast. No fuel there, but it’s a handy break because the ramp tiedown area is only a 3 block walk to Main Steet.
It’s a nice little town and makes me miss living in Montana, kind of like “Cheers”, I don’t think anybody has ever met a stranger in a Montana cafe. We stopped at Cowley, WY for fuel. Cowley has a card pump and the best fuel prices we’ve found anywhere around here ($4.85 for 100LL). Worland’s fuel is $6 per gal (glad we have the STC to burn unleaded).
Shared the sky with a gaggle (?) of pelicans on the leg that ended at home.
