MT – Day 3 – The Corn Palace

7 photos in this post. No stop in Mitchell, SD would be complete without a visit to The Corn Palace. We first visited this back in 2002. Yikes that was 17 years ago! Michelle, Michael and myself, along with our friend Bev and her niece, Michelle’s best friend Ali, were on a trip from West Virginia to look at property in Montana. Richard and the three little ones had never been and I honestly could... read more

The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center is very well done providing a great history lesson for both young... read more

Montana Trip – Day 1

Photo is courtesy of Caleb 🙂 Whilst we left a little later than planned today, we did get out of Treasure Lake by 10am. It was SO sweet to have a group of friends waiting to see us off. All the kids have had a lot of fun over the last couple weeks. The drive up to St. Jo was smooth and without incident. We made two stops: one for snack and one for lunch. We are going to do our best not to purchase any... read more
