A great time in Great Falls!

Late Tuesday afternoon the pack rolled into Great Falls accompanied by very heavy rain which thankfully let up by the time we hit the busier center of town. It was great to be greeted by both 4 and 2 legged friends. Oh, everyone here is so friendly! The 2 legged pack members visited all evening and I got to meet St. Bernard "Bogey" who I egged into romping and playing. That was exhilarating!

On Wednesday the pack headed to a local bike shop and found out that indeed all the trails in the area would be too wet and mucky to ride, so off for a hike we went.

There is a fantastic system of trails near the Missouri
Black Eagle dam and reservoir
River here, from paved to dirt hiking paths and also newly built single track. We hiked on both paved and dirt hiking paths and checked out many interpretive trail signs along the way.

Intricate metal sculptures-beautiful!...

On an overlook were artsy sculptures of Captains Lewis and Clark along with Sacagewea. I wasn't sure if they were real or what!

...but scary.

When at an overlook, we spotted some folks having some high-water fun:

Next adventure destination: Butte, the Copper Country of Montana.
