We traveled from Canyon Ferry Lake to Helena to resupply and then continued on to Deer Lodge, Montana. Deer Lodge is the second oldest city in Montana, Helena is the oldest. Both cities have their roots in mining.
We decided to stop in Deer Lodge because a severe winter storm was heading directly toward our area. The temperature was dropping fast and predicted to drop into the low thirties (Fahrenheit) by the morning and significant snow fall in certain areas, this is mid June!
After the storm the next day we visited a prison museum a toy museum, and a auto museum. Highly recommend these places to anyone coming through Deer Lodge.
Lolo, Montana was a surprise too. Let’s take a look at the road through Deer Lodge and Lolo, Montana.
Sometimes traveling without reservations and camping in national forest isn’t always easy, but at the end of the day we have always had a place to park our tiny house. On the road less traveled we never know what adventure is waiting around the next curve in the road.
From LoLo the road took us north to the Flathead National Forest 40 minutes south of Glacier National Park…
