Where I stayed
The next day we avoided Calgary and headed southeast to the U.S. border across the backroads of Alberta. At one point we saw a sign that said no services or residences for 138 Kms or about 80 to 85 miles. You really should see this countryside. The road stretches for miles with nothing in sight but an occassional cow. We crossed the border into the U.S. at the Wild Horse crossing. We asked the border guard whether he lived at the crossing but he said home was about an hour's drive from the post
Our next stop was Havre, a small town in northern Montana. When we arrived the police detoured us through the train yard and we were stopped at a train crossing for about 15 minutes. We learned later that a 12 year old boy had been killed by a grain truck and that was why all traffic was being detoured. Havre looked like a pretty tough little town at first glance.
The RV park was okay but nothing to write home about. RV park residents could use the indoor pool at the Best Western hotel and the small poker machine casino attached but we decided not to. I prefer other types of slot machines to the poker only type.
We ordered a pizza from Pizza Hut, talked with our Rv neighbors from Wisconsin then made an early night of it. Tomorrow we go to Medora, N.D.
