Comfy room Trail Mix Montana Style

Sweet friends

The road trip after landing in Billings was a sugar-fueled 120 miles. Apparently we all have vacation mode that means lots of Diet Coke and Red Vines. Thankfully, our little room in Gardiner is as amazing as you can imagine, overlooking the Yellowstone River. Kayakers just went by and I am pretty sure the three pair of sandals I brought weren’t the best idea.

Snow. In May. Who knew? That said, today was the 13th day with temperatures higher than 100 in Phoenix and I’m currently wearing a coat. Life in Montana — giddyup.

    What gorgeous pictures – I visited my aunt & uncle in MT years ago, and I’ve been wanting to make a return visit ever since. It’s in the 40’s at night here, so I can imagine in MT it’s a little brisk!! Hope you all have a great time!
