The Western Front

We continued heading east. Took Rt 2 that hugs the southern edge of Glacier NP and when we emerged on the other side there was a lot of prairie ahead. 

This area is know as the Western Front. Where the prairie meets the mountains. 
This is also Indian territory.
They have their version of Expresso places.
We stopped for a couple of hours at Browning at the casino as Bob had 35 mph winds. They were tail winds but then we were turning off and they would become side winds.

It was early evening when we arrived at Choteau (show-toe) and the campground at the city park. $8 a night.

Our neighbors were biking the country on their bikes. They are Gary & Jeannie from Anchorage.

We walked to the other end of town to the museum and toured it.

 Around the corner from us was the courthouse.

We took a ride up into the mountains. Teton Canyon was beautiful.

Our return took us thru ranch lands that really show the "Front"
In the evening we attend a talk about the Maytez Indians who were great fiddler's. Metiz are indians with French/Scottish heritage from the era of the Hudson Bay fur trappers. They intermarried and spoke a French/Scottish dialect. He played music of the various eras.
