Well, I made it home late last night after driving about 1100 miles yesterday from Hardin, Montana to home. This put my miles driven for DaveTour 2013 at about 3700 total.
It was a good trek and I'll try to put together a list of my favorite photos shortly.
One group I'd like to point out though is a few from my first drive into Glacier on this visit. This was my sixth visit to Glacier (I think) and most of those trips included three or more drives on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. This was my first drive completely through thick clouds.
I decided to stay around Whitefish on Wednesday. I highly recommend the Buffalo Cafe (breakfast) and Latitude 48 (dinner) to everyone. It was a good day to relax and enjoy downtown along Central.
Thursday (yesterday) I decided to do the Trail of the Cedars/Avalanche Lake trail. It's a trail I know well and always enjoy.
It has been a busy past few days.
Sunday morning I decided to head west. I had heard good things about downtown Spearfish, South Dakota, so I stopped off there for breakfast.
While I was there I decided the next place I wanted to visit was Missoula and on my way there I stopped off for a brief visit at the Little Big Horn Battlefield National Monument
Thursday morning I left Columbia and am traveling north and west to see what I can see. DaveTour 2013 has begun.
I am trying to keep my exact route flexible. I missed making it to the mountains last year, the first year I hadn't been west in about a decade. I headed north to Sioux Falls and spent Friday night in Mitchell, South Dakota.
Mitchell is home of the Corn Palace, of course:
