Some where between Philipsburg and Billings we hit a small bump in the road called Hardin, MT. 

In late 1875, Sioux and Cheyenne Indians left their reservations, outraged over the continued intrusions of whites into their sacred lands in the Black Hills. They gathered in Montana with the great warrior Sitting Bull to fight for their lands. The following spring, two victories over the US Cavalry emboldened them to fight on in the summer of 1876.

We didn’t participate in the re-enactment of the battle, but did get lots of photos and spent time wandering around the monument.  And then we stand over Custer’s grave at the Battle of Little Bighorn…they came out of the East…

In Billings the night before we’d had a good run and finally existed the smoke.  While sitting around the pool we participated in a broad range of “refreshments”! 

Much thanks go out to Nanci8r and Hal for hauling the cooler and along with it some cool drinks at that end of long day.
