Billings, MT

On the way to Billings we drove US-89 from the northwestern entrance of Yellowstone to Billings MT.  We passed to the west of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, which contains the largest single expanse of land above 10,000 feet in elevation in the USA.  The entire winderness is a watershed for the Yellowstone River, the longest undammed river left in the USA.  It flows over 670 miles from its sources in Yellowstone National Park and is the lifeblood of about one third of Montana .  It joins the Missouri River, which also flows out of Montana, in northern North Dakota.

We are spending two days at the Billings KOA.  We normally don’t stay at RV Parks that begin with a "K"!!  However, this KOA was the first KOA in America, and it is a nice park, having been kept up to date. 

It rained most of the time we were here so we didn’t do much exploring.  We caught up on our Costco and OfficeMax shopping.  We discovered the HuHot Mongolian Grill where we stopped for a late lunch.  The Mongolian Grill had a variety of great sauces premixed, unlike our favorite in Roseville CA where you make your own by ladling a variety of ingredients onto your meat and veggies, before handing it to the grill master.  HuHot was excellent however, and the grill master, Drew, was really entertaining with this spatula flipping and grill "fire". See some addtional photos of Drew in operation.  HuHot is just off exit 446 on I-90 in Billings MT.
