After Denver, a half day or so drive up to Miles City, Montana

Hello, everyone.

Miles City is a biggish town in eastern Montana. It at one time had a railhead that gathered sheep for shipment. Now it's pretty quiet, though there's supposedly a big horse sale there every year. It's in convenient driving distance of the Black Hills of South Dakota.

IIRC this was a creek in the area, which drains into the Yellowstone River.
 In this picture you see why Montana calls itself the Big Sky Country. It just goes on and on, and it's usually blue like this.
