From the bloggers at On the Road of Retirement.
We packed up our stuff in Livingston Montana and hit the road west again for about 2.5 hours (126 miles). It was a little windy on the drive today but with all the beautiful mountain scenery it went by pretty fast. We pulled into the Lewis and Clark Fairgrounds and asked about camping. We paid for two nights ($20 per night) and drove around back to the RV park.
Man what a cool site we discovered here! This is the best campground we have ever stayed at in a fairgrounds. There is electricity only (including some 50 amp service) and nothing else… no frills. However, this campground is laid out more like a state park with beautiful scenery all around. We set up and simply relaxed to admire the view of Mount Helena.
We made a plan to hike that mountain before leaving but first things first. We wanted first to tour the state capitol. I don’t know when we decided to start visiting state capitols but I sure wish we had started it from the beginning of our travels. They are such interesting state treasures with history, art and wonderful architecture….. all for free to visit.
