Road Trip Day 3: Bozeman, MT
Our stop for the night on day 3 of our 2010 Road Trip was Bozeman, MT. In the late afternoon, we could see dark clouds on the horizon and we followed the outskirts of a heavy thunderstorm eastward on the I-90. The timing couldn't have been better because when we arrived in Bozeman, the clouds parted and the sun came out. We stopped at the Walmart to pick up some food and supplies (including a disposable water filter for our Keystone Premier 31BHPR) and saw that the thunderstorm had left behind some flooded streets.
We stayed at Bear Canyon Campground just outside of town. We had pull-through site #4 with water, electricity, and sewer. No fire pit. The campground was pretty and the location convenient (just off the I-90) but the pull-through sites, while long, were very narrow. With a playground for the kids and an inviting pool (which we arrived too late to use), it was good for passing through on a one night stay but not for anything longer because the neighbors were too close for comfort. There was a picnic table at each site, but not much room for walking around or setting up anything else.
Montana truly is Big Sky Country and we were treated to a beautiful sunset that I'm sorry to say was hard to capture with a cell phone camera. I guess you really have to be there to experience it! It was the first of several memorable Montana sunsets during this trip.
