Basin(2)

Looking For Art?

I stopped in to the Basin Trading Post in Stanford, Montana the other day. It’s a great coffee and cinnamon roll stop (yes, I travel with my tummy in mind) and I was ready for some java and breakfast.

Breakfast Worth Driving For

Last week I was lucky to have breakfast at Eddie’s Corner, literally a corner at the junction of US Hwy 191 and 87. We had stayed in Lewistown and planned to do some touring in the area. Eddie’s Corner was a perfect stop, just about 15 or 20 minutes from Lewistown. Eddie’s Corner has been […]

I’ve been to the Railroad Museum several times and I had never heard about the model train folks. Well, it was my lucky day because three […]

Touring Chinook’s Blaine County Museum

The other day I visited Chinook’s Blaine County Museum. I’ve been there many times and each time I find something else that gets on to my “favorites” list. We began with the impressive multi-media presentation titled “40 Miles From Freedom”, a flash back in history to a time when the US Cavalry had an effort […]

Pheasant Hunting In Montana

OK, I’m going to do some whining right off the bat here! I had envisioned a crisp fall day, bright sunshine and basically a great day out of the office in search of some wily pheasants. The first thing I did was look out the window and that “slight chance” of precipitation that the weatherman predicted had […]
