Deer Lodge, Montana

Never heard of Deer Lodge, Montana? Well, neither did we until we stopped here on our way into Canada. This is our last week before we cross the border. Deer Lodge reminds me of the small town I grew up in - Cold Spring, Minnesota -- just one Main Street running through the town.

Getting here from Salt Lake City was somewhat of a challenge. When we left SLC, the temperature was in the low 70s. By the time we got to Deer Lodge (with one night stop at Black Foot, Idaho), the weather was 38 degrees F. Not only that, but the winds were at over 40 miles per hour with rain (and some snow flakes) falling. Jerry had to work extra hard to keep the RV on the road as we kept getting hit with strong wind spurts. See pictures below taken while we were traveling to Deer Lodge.
