Driving With Dixie – The Postlude

Dixie says goodbye to our blog and shares a few more thoughts with us.

As we reflect on the last 6 days, we’d just like to say “We made it all the way through the Montana Dinosaur Trail! It is do-able and fun!”

Our mileage was close to 1,500 miles across some amazingly varied terrain. I wish everyone could enjoy the state of Montana. It is beautiful! On our last day we drove from Glacier National Park to Yellowstone National Park and that alone was a treat.

Our budget for gas and motel came to about $800 and then our rented van will be about $500. It would have cost less if we would have had a large enough vehicle or camper because we wouldn’t have had the rental expense.

We took a lot of photos – too many to share in our blog. Here are a few that didn’t make our daily postings.

For some reason, we didn’t post any photos of the Rudyard Depot Museum located in the community of Rudyard.

Here’s one of the boys in front of a great display there.



Our last stop on the trail was at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman. This facility is the largest on the Montana Dinosaur Trail and has something for everyone.

As you can see from the photo, each day when the boys put on a tee shirt or cap, they’ll be doing some marketing for the trail.

Reflecting on this fun trip, it’s easy to realize that it could have been titled Travelin’ With a Couple of Movin’ Grandmas, or Groovin’ Grannies…you can come up with your own title for these special ladies!

Thanks for the memories Dixie.
