Medora, ND Straight west on I-94 to billings, MT, with a stop at Pompey's Pillar, where Clark carved his signature into a large sandstone formation on July 25, 1806, as he was returning down the Yellowstone River. Here's a shot at our lunch stop above the Yellowstone River. ok


It was rather a rainy day, so I enhanced the photo of Pompey's Pillar, where many of our group took the 200+ step walk to the top of the rock. along the way is the signature of Wm. Clark, encased in plastic and guarded by electronic cross beams. It is perhaps the most protected grafitti in the world.

 

 

 

 

At Billings we had a birthday party for Meriwether Lewis's 231st birthday. Marilynn led us in singing Happy birthday and Connie provided the balloons.
