Billings

We're on the road again! (Can't you just hear Willie Nelson singing in the background?) After sharing "so longs" with many of our friends at Red Rock, we headed north on US-20 toward Montana.

We weren't sure how the highways would be on this last day of the holiday weekend. But, we were blessed with beautiful weather, absolutely no road construction and not much traffic at all. With almost nobody on the roads, we kept our eyes on the beautiful Gallatin River, which was a popular spot for fishermen and brave float trippers today.


A quick 250-miles after leaving Island Park, we arrived at the KOA in Billings, Montana. This is the company's first campground, which opened in 1961. This nearly 50-year-old park is the company's flagship and is showing no signs of age. It's a beautiful spot on the edge of Billings and the shore of the Yellowstone River.

After an afternoon of stocking up on much-needed supplies here in Billings, we're looking forward to kicking back and relaxing in the world's oldest KOA. Tomorrow, we're planning a "close encounter" of some kind.
