Lots of farmland here in Big Sky Country!

We've now crossed into Montana. I Thought this sign looked a little weird because it says the highway

it interesting that the local government contributed $0.0 Million!
Lots of farm equipment!

there been in years) for telephone poles along the right-of-way!

Farm houses, you'll see lots of them along this route!
