Leaving Wyoming to gorgeous Montana and lots of history (July 2022)

From Cody, WY we went to Custer, Montana. If you don’t take it with you, you won’t have it – not much in Custer but this was just a stopover for us on the way to Glacier. We stayed at The Fort @ 49. Full hookup RV sites (in a field) and the Fort @ 49 restaurant. Would definitely recommend eating there but make a reservation! People drive from hours away for the great food. Bonus, we had friends that detoured to us for a night’s stay and dinner at the restaurant – best part of being on the road is meeting new friends. We had some beautiful sunsets and the night sky is vivid with very little light pollution. We were able to see multiple Star Link satellites being launched – very cool!

Garland’s favorite place to be in the afternoon – especially smoking meat!

Always great food at the Fort @ 49

Our next stop was Fort Benton, MT. Very cool town – it is the oldest continuously occupied settlement in Montana and at one time their main street was considered the “Bloodiest block in the West” with gunslingers walking the street. Poker was played with six-guns atop the tables and females from the brothels were as tough as the men. A lot of history at their waterfront, including the first bridge in Montana to cross the Missouri river and the story of Shep’s vigil – dog stories always get us. We would also recommend eating at Wake Cup for breakfast or brunch!
