Day 3 – Our Trip to Calgary

This has been a delightful day.

We are now in Mountain Time.

DSC_2075This driver had a challenge ahead of him. He was on the construction crew and had to do a u-turn.

DSC_2080This was our first time ever to be in North Dakota.

DSC_2082It is nice to drive with the sun on our back.

DSC_2089Now we’re truckin’!

…and I thought it was challenging to take pictures at 65 miles an hour.

DSC_2108These two hills in the middle of a flat and rolling hill landscape made me smile. I just imagined God putting them there like I would make a pile of sand by letting it run through my hands.

DSC_2118This probably looks disgusting to you, but it doesn’t take many hours for the windshield to look like this. Cerwin cleaned the windows before we started today, and at 9 a.m. when we stopped for breakfast. This is what the window looked like shortly after noon.

It becomes challenging to take pictures.

Geese in Flight went up in 2001, next to the Gladstone exit — and it is claimed to be the World’s Largest Outdoor Sculpture.

DSC_2131We saw several yellow fields in one area, but have not discovered what it is.

DSC_2135We saw a few oil wells.

DSC_2150We saw by the map that this was ahead of us, but were not prepared for its beauty.

DSC_2167Montana – the last state for the day.

DSC_2170If I remember correctly, this is called Yellowstone River.

Our stopping place for tonight is Glendive, Montana. We’re in a small truck stop with a very busy restaurant. And I have Internet in the truck. 🙂

While we were enjoying supper (Cerwin a chopped steak meal and me a BLT), a young driver pulled his chair up to our table and asked if we were with the chapel. Thus began an hour-long talk about the Lord. He had never heard of TFC, so I showed him a PowerPoint presentation that I keep on my computer. After praying with him (in a very noisy restaurant), I gave him a copy of TFC’s Highway News and Cerwin showed him inside the chapel. It was refreshing to meet someone who is committed to following Christ.

  1. I love trucking along with you and Cerwin — what a neat trip to see the landscape from your perspective! Something I’ve always thought would be fun to do ….
