We left Calgary on Sunday to drive down to Barra de Navidad. We have rented a house there for 6 months starting November 1. It was a busy few weeks getting ready to leave so we decided to just drive to Great Falls, Montana the first day. We had a windy drive down but enjoyed the countryside.
The next day we stopped at The Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. This is where a significant battle occurred between the Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians and the United States Army. On June 25th 1876 the Indians routed the army in the major battle. This site has markers showing where each soldier and Indian fell. It was quite moving to see the markers, especially where Custer’s last stand was.
We are driving through Wyoming next.
