July 12th and 13th ~ Bozeman, Montana
After the thrill of the Beartooth Highway, it was time to head our rig toward Glacier. But with a couple of stops built in along the way. I grabbed our AAA travel book, and looked to see what the “Gem” sites were for Montana, and was pleased to find one in Bozeman, which was a perfect overnight spot for us.
Departing from Red Lodge, the drive took us through some lush farm and grazing land.
The Siebel Dinosaur Complex houses one of the largest collection of dinosaur relics in the world, including a full size T. Rex skeleton.
We also watched several movies in Taylor Planetarium which shed light on the universe, black holes, gravity and more.
A regional history section highlighted both the Native American culture and early settlers.
Another very interesting section was on CROCS. I had no idea how enormous the salt-water crocs could get.
We got a recommendation from a lady (college student) at the museum for a place for dinner and she suggested Taco Montes. They have an unusual variety of tacos, including the Thai and Bobcat which we found delicious and very reasonably priced.
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful for the incredibly well done displays that connected the dots between dinosaurs and birds.
