The peaches are in season and soooo good. I picked up a flat peaches and headed east.
The AC is intermittently blowing a circuit breaker, probably a short. Repair facility in Missoula first appointment was two weeks out. No good because I have to been in Newcastle, WY on the 8th. I have an appointment in Billings, MT for the 7th. I hope it is a easy fix.
Stopped at Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park. Though not as spectacular as the cave videos I showed my students, they were interesting. It is a two hour tour, one hour in the cave. The cave is vertical. You hike to the top and then descend down through it.
Trail up to entrance from the distant visitors center. Below is the return trail
Looking down on the campground (45.82278, -111.85635) where I spent the night. Lewis and Clark camped here in 1805. Ever since I entered the Lolo Pass in Idaho I have been traveling the same country they did over 200 years ago.
Bat calcited in the rock that died thirty years ago
The calcite is beautiful when polished smooth.
I am in Bozeman and headed for the Museum of the Rockies.
