Great Falls to Helena. First stop today was at Ulm Pishkun. Meriwether Lewis wrote of how the Indians would lure the buffalo to the edge of a cliff and stampede them over - risky business for the young lad used as bait. ok

Some of our ladies pose in front of a tepee in the exhibit area. this interpretive center does a good job of explaining Montana Indian culture. the buffalo jumps were used before the horse and gun came.

Near the Gates of the Mountains Recreation area we saw the Sleeping Giant. We then took a wonderful scenic boat ride through the wilderness described by Lewis on July 19, 1805. He remarked that the walls were so high and steep it looked like rocks could fall on them.

At the Capitol we attended the Supreme Court. Would you want to argue a case before these judges.

The front lawn of the capitol has this wonderful floral display.
