Don and Gayle Diltz have returned from a trip of 4968 miles. They went through 11 states and had good weather. Don and Gayle stopped in McCall, Idaho where Gayle rode a horse. They saw European Fallow Deer at a farm and cruised the lake. Going to Montana through Lolo Pass there was a big forest fire and Missoula, Montana was smoky. In Butte they saw the big copper pit and attended a dinner. They went to Billings and toured the Little Big Horn and drove through a field with markers and docents telling the information of the dead. Gayle said they learned a lot of history. Going through North Dakota saw lots of crops. In South Dakota they went through the Badlands, saw Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse. In Deadwood they stumbled on a car show, made Don’s day! In Minnesota they stopped at Pipestone where there were Indian artifacts on display. The Indians made pipes out of the stone in the area and now the quarry is a sacred site. Don and Gayle went to Pioneer Village in Minden, Nebraska, where Harold Warp collected artifacts for the future children to know about pioneer life. On the way home they stopped at their daughter’s home in Utah. In Reno the smoke was so bad they stopped at Boomtown where it was a little better. It was quite a trip! Gayle recommends all the places they went.
