What to do, what to do?

After waiting over night for the geyser to go in to service :-).  We started on up the road to Lava Hot  Springs, just a hop skip and a jump into the hot soaking pools. It was a neat little resort type town with old time flavor. We enjoyed the sights but neither of us wanted to soak in the hot pools.

Historic Hotels in Downtown

It was time to do what we least like to do, get on the Infernal-State 15 and head North. We sure didn't want to go South that would puts us right Back at the Sticks and Bricks House. I called the guys at the Shooting  club  at Rexberg to get directions to the club. I had already made up my mind if they didn't call back before I got to Terreton,ID that I would just blow the shoot off.  I was enjoying being a tourist more all the time. I did not know what a traveler was yet. We had a bite of lunch at Lava hot springs and hit the road. I was hoping that the guys from the club didn't call back

21/2 hour later we cross the Continental Divide for the 5th time at the Montana State line.

We drove about 15 miles to Lima, MT and called it a day. As soon as we pulled in we liked this little town. The first thing we heard was a bunch of kids having fun. They were on the school grounds playing basket ball and just hanging out. No adults around supervising. We talked about how different it was in California where they have a Guard on the grounds and no one is allowed in after hours except staff. The kids played until dark and then it was silent. 
 The Bank had gone out of business and was a residence/store combination

 We had a really peaceful night and and enjoyed our leisurely chat with Juan Valdez before we went out to explore the town.As you can see in the pictures below  that didnt take to long and the traffic was not bad at all.
Some folks came by to chat, they said they dont get a lot of visitors here other than to the gas station. They tried to get us to stay and set up shop in Lima and as much as Jeanie and I liked the little town we were not ready to settle down and for sure not in the winter in Montana.

The Bar on the graveled main street  was doing good, maybe the bank should have sold booze :-))).

 What to do ,what to do. We were only 2 hours away from the location of our next shoot which didn't start for 4 days. shall we set here in this nice  quite little town or go to gun club and hope it is a nice and quite until the shoot starts.

About that time the Guys from Rexburg, ID called and said their shoot had been canceled.I didn't have to tell them I wasn't going to be there after all.

Well heck, lets ramble on up the Infernal - State15 to Infernal-State 90 West to Montana State highway 1 to Anaconda and the Anaconda gun club.
 About 1 1/2 hours up the road guess what we found , yep number 6 crossing of the continental Divide since we started our trip in march.

We had a great view at the Anaconda gun club and it was quite as a mouse. When a vehicle turned on the gravel road you could hear them coming 1/2 mile away. These people fed us good, it was some really good home cooking.

Tomorrow: Heading to the Loggers Jamboree.

I plan to have a great day, I hope you will join me
