Mon. Morn. 22 Aug, Day 1 of Great Falls PausePosted: August 23, 2011
Hi All. Sitting at a computer in the Great Falls Library. Man, it’s nice to use a real keyboard. Really enjoying all the comments to the blog…helps me keep my energy up. Thank you. The bike is at a shop right now getting lubed and tuned. I meet up with Bill DeLoach Wed., and Thurs. we start east for North Dakota together. Till then I’m taking a luxurious break at Malmstrom AFB here in G.F. Wish I’d noticed last night that it was on the edge of town. Still, slept well in a campground that had pretty good facilities. I’ll try to add some local pictures to this posting tonight. Gotta go see the falls and soak up some more history.
Lewis n Clark Interpretive center was very well done-learned a lot. Oh, the bike shop did a good job-shifting gears is much better and the chain’s clean. Now, if the motor will just keep up.
Hot n windy day today. Only 22 miles, GFalls is a big town. Pics are a life size reproduction of portaging around these Falls at the Interpretive Center and pic from the river’s edge, thru the willows. Right after that I saw two big magpies racing up the cliff. Magpies are big in MT too.
