Summer Adventure 2021: the End of Week Two – Part Five

After leaving Yellowstone we continued north on route 89 and stopped for the night in Gallantin National Forest at Canyon Campground. The campground was right off the highway, easy off and easy on. Being so close to route 89 meant there’s some road noise from passing cars, but during the night everything quieted down. The price was right at $5 per night – dry camping.

The next day we once again continued north to Malmstrom AFB in Great Falls, Montana. We didn’t have reservations, didn’t need them since this is a first come first serve campground.

We stayed at Malmstrom for the weekend and brought out our ebikes for a 20 mile ride and caught up on laundry and resupply…

While on our bike ride around Great Falls we stopped to get a picture of these metal statues. That’s me next to Lewis & Clark and their Native American guide/translator, Sacagawea.
MaryAnn’s happened to walk by the statues and Tai snuck a quick picture.

After Malmstrom AFB and Great Falls we traveled southwest to Canyon Ferry Lake to camp on public land. It was completely free camping and we finally got to break out our kayaks! But you will have to wait for our next post to see what happens next…
