Day Two On the Road to Butte, Montana


Arrived Helena last evening at 6:00 pm. Ate a tasting meal of chicken stew that had been cooking in the slow cooker all day, and then we found the Walmart to settle into for a quiet, comfortable sleep. There were several Albertans parked there along with us.
Sunday morning, up before the birds at 5:30 and on the road by 6:00 am.  We were almost to Boulder when the low air light and signal came on so pulled into the Exxon and Jim checked for leaks, etc and of course found one. Managed to do a temporary fix on it so we were able to travel to Butte where we will have more options for repairs, help etc.
On the road just past Boulder!  Sun is shining on the red stone.

In Butte, driving around to find a Auto Zone so Jim could buy tool that he needed, we found ourselves in Old Historic Butte. Very interesting old city.  By the appearance of the old buildings it must have been very prosperous in the Day. 
Lots of interesting places. Too bad the weather is rainy and windy, would have been fun to walk around and check some of the businesses etc. 
Old mining equipment all around the old city.

Looking down into the city in the valley.

           Another view as we drive down into the Main Street. 
It is now pouring rain and we are parked beside a 4B's Restaurant and Lucky Lil's Casino.
Jim has finally managed to get the air leak stopped and I believe we will carry on down the road even though it is raining and we were hoping to be through here buy now. Going to post this now.
Later..........when I have Wifi again.
