We left the KOA at 9 am sharp, went over to the Havoline Oil and Lube, and got right in. The lady manager assisted in getting me pulled in, oversaw the oil change, told me that they had indeed left a message and agreed to the $39 charge, and within 20 minutes I was pulling out. Marcia drove the HHR, and followed me over to a Walmart where I picked up some extra oil, Dot 3 (she said my breaks were not full, nor at the add level, so I thought I should have some just in case), two gallons of windshield wiper fluid, and some gas additive (I use Lucas, and also started using some denatured alcohol).
I can only show a few pictures, but the drive to Trout Creek from Missoula was just a wonderful drive, especially after we got on Montana Highway 200, which travels through the entire state, and this short portion we are on is just a wonderful, scenic drive.
Much of the route follows the Flathead River, and then it enters into the Clark Fork River named after the Lewis and Clark group, and starts near Butt and enters into the Columbia River past Sandpoint Idaho.
Give a gal a camera, water, and mountains and what do you get? 185 pictures, that’s what. As you can see, one certainly can’t blame her…
