|Butte and new memory card||High mountains in the south||Big Sheep Mountain||Vi kryssar Yellowstone River|
Butte, Montana 9 AM. BLUEMONDAY !! Accidentally
I wiped out my memory card in the camera with all pictures since Rapid City. Are
there limits to foolishness ?? I was trying to switch off the automatic blitz in
the camera-menu, had a black moment and pressed OK on the Format command. (As I
should not have told my clients what format c: means on a hard disk ) Well,
it’s too late to regret. Some of the pictures still reside on a MacIntosh in
Face slap number 2 this morning: The breakfast
menu I ordered was a ”wolf in
sheep’s wool”, a yeastball
spiced with some for my taste, very uneatable flavor,
overpoured with some kind of white sauce with small bits of meat.
The fried egg and the ”hashbrowns” went down without complaint.
Another expensive lesson, even if the food is quite cheap here (compared to Norway). That **** militant female bus driver ought to take some blame, agree
??? - Do not cry over
spilled milk !
From now I will have to concentrate on the good
sides of life. .. We are now passing the Continental Divide. To the southeast I
see high mountains. Else there are dry and sandy, trees here and there and some
ranches along the valley bottom. I must try to make some photos trough bus
window. (on my second memorycard), nice autumncolors so many places along my
Our driver looks like the spitting image of our
retired local Chief of schools. We
have passed Livingstone – I got no glimpse of Stanley….. Saw to the south into Yellowstone National Park.
Here are big flat stretches, here and there areas with artificial
irrigation. I have to remember to take a photo of the car number plates in this
Tuesday October 7. Spent the night at Big 5 Motel in Billings, 35$, good room
with TV, bath and bed. Local phone calls free of charge. Made contact with Mrs.
Sunwall. She felt sorry because her husband was not present in Billings. I
called Richard Melchert to tell I could not make a stopover in Golden valley.
He told me Wanda already had left for Fessenden.
– Had a good nights sleep, woke before 7 and took the bus for Bismarck
at 9.30 AM. I’m now sitting in Miles City – has just decided to bring the Mc
Donald napkin (very good advertising for the farmers!)
… Took a picture of Big Sheep Mountain, now we are crossing Yellowstone
River. The bus driver told me he was driving un till 8 PM. Maybe
they are changing in Bismarck (No,
he went on further) The landscape
is wide plains in between lower mountains. Small pieces of cultivated land –
irrigation and big amounts of dry hayballs. Nice autumcolours along the rivers.
