We departed Glacier National Park at 11:45 a.m. Our plan is to spend the night at a Walmart in Missoula, Montana. Our planned route will be south on US-89 to west on US-2 to south on US-93 into Missoula.
While traveling south on US-93 we took a slight detour on MT-212 to visit the National Bison Range near Ravalli, Montana. This area is home to a herd of approximately 500 bison. Visitors drive a mountainous 19-mile one way route on a gravel road to view the bison as well as other wildlife. Driving on this road is a thrill in itself! Our speed never exceeded 10 mph, for fear we would shake our poor van apart. However, it was well worth the visit.
We finally arrived at the Walmart in Missoula at 10:00 p.m. This is just a marvelous town to visit. During my working career I made occasional sales trips to Missoula and always enjoyed my visits there.
