So much has happened since we left Oregon and I have been so negligent on this blog. We have made quite a few stops and enjoyed lots of different places.
First out of Oregon was Hood Park near Pasco, Washington. This was just an overnight stop but a wonderful one. Tiny campground and hard to maneuver but the site we had was beautiful and right on the river.
|This was our lovely campsite at Hood Park in Washington. It was a nice large site with a river view!|
Then we moved on to Thompson Falls, MT where we visited with our friends Rod and Shelle whom we had met in Mexico years ago when we were there on our boats. They now have a wonderful home in Thompson Falls and if not for Shelle’s directions, we would have missed one of the most beautiful drives in Montana. She told us which roads to follow get to there – we would never have chosen that route – local knowledge. We had a fun evening with them catching up and found a great little RV park, Birdland Bay – that so far is one of our favorites.

|This river was just a short walk from our campground in Thompson Falls. What an early morning view!|
|Kirby, Shelle and Rod - so much fun reconnecting with them!|

Next stop was Livingston, MT where we got new plates for the RV and the truck and visited with Kirby’s cousin and her husband – Melani and Jim. We were in a horrible RV park so left quickly the next day and are currently in Three Forks at a lovely park. We need more of Livingston so will return there at the end of this week. It is such a cute little town that I need to explore a little more.

Since we have been here at Three Forks we have visited Helena, the state capitol, Missouri Headwaters State Park, Lewis and Clark Caverns, and Virginia City.
