Montana Road Trip 2010, Part Twenty-Eight

One thing I keep forgetting to mention about Montana is that before we go I need to buy stock in lip balm. Because I use it like crazy when we’re there. I never realized how much drier it is there.  Not a bad thing, just different.  I always have lip balm with me, and in the Rocky Mountains I used it copiously;; my lips always felt chapped. I’m sure if we lived there my body would get used to it, but the difference between there and here was very noticeable.

One thing I wish I’d known then, when we were traveling along I-90, or maybe hurtling along would be a better description…because the speed limit was 75 mph…is that there was a frontage road that we could have driven on instead.

Frontage Road before Bearmouth

Montana Road Trip 2010, Part Twenty-Six

This time.  Definitely heading makai.  Toward the ocean. Of course, I could also say we’re heading mauka, since we’re also heading towards mountains, but that’s ‘way too confusing.  So makai it is.

Homestake Pass.

Homestake Pass is a mountain pass in the Rocky Mountains of Montana. It sits on the Continental Divide on the border between Jefferson County and Silver Bow County, six miles south-southeast of Butte in Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest at an elevation of 6,329 feet.

By now, we were very familiar with it.  Just think…on the Bozeman side of the pass, water runs one way, and on the Butte side of it, water runs makai.  During this trip and our previous one to Montana, we’d cross back and forth over the Continental Divide time after time in a fraction of the time it took early pioneers to cross it.  It was actually pretty cool to think that we were on the backbone of the US.
