Day 63 - August 5, 2013 - Butte, MT to Missoula, MT

All driving today.  Along the way, we stopped at the Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site and took a tour of the old house and explored the grounds a bit.  It was a big cattle ranch around the turn of the century, and was a pretty neat history lesson.

The rest of the ride was pretty uneventful, Missoula is a neat college town, and we grabbed lunch there then found a hotel for the evening.  My mom and I checked out the casino - it was just a handful of video slot/poker/keno machines in a room.  Nothing like Vegas, of course.

We also tracked down a sporting goods store and picked up some 45 degree mummy sleeping bags for the chilly nights we figure we have ahead of us.  Hoping they keep us warm!

We stumbled across the Adventure Cycling headquarters...good thing they were closed, or Mel probably would have told them a thing or two about some of the roads their maps have taken us on!
