We stopped by the Little Bighorn Battlefield Monument between Sheridan, WY and Billings, MT. I was last here in the early 1990’s and since then they have built a native american memorial site which has many quotes from the defenders who fought in that battle. The first time I was here was in winter and the crowds were very thin. I might have been the only one there that day. This time I went in early July, about a week after the June 25th date of the battle, and it’s much warmer, and there are many more people! Schools out!
The balance of the day was spend following the Yellowstone river toward the west. The river valley is green this time of year and the pastures are dotted with cows and horses.
