A Trip Down Montana’s Hwy 212

The 142nd anniversary (June 25-26,1876) of the Battle of the Little Big Horn took place recently. About three weeks ago, I saw the sign for the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument as we turned off the interstate to take U.S. Hwy 212 through the Crow Indian Reservation.
We had travelled this highway before. The rolling mountains are so beautiful. Other than a few additions (road, few buildings, cemetary) the National Park Service has left this land as it was.
Sadly, we didn’t have time to stop at the National Monument. If you are interested in more info, click here.
This is one of my favorite stretches of road to travel when the weather is nice. My photos do not do the beauty of this area justice. Nor the steep slope of this mountain.
The first time I went down this road, it was under construction at the bottom. I have to admit, it was a little disconcerting barreling down the hill in our home on wheels to come to a complete stop! Definitely need to take it easy now. They put in a round about at the bottom!
Thankfully, after that little adventure, it’s back to easy-peasy cruising and enjoying the natural landscape.
