Helena was a halfway point from Glacier to Yellowstone but it sure was a beautiful pitstop.
On our arrival day, we relaxed, I did some grocery shopping and worked on a sewing project. Oh yeah, there is a sewing machine on board now so watch out! Cloth napkins are heading your way this Christmas. Or a pajama set. Just kidding. Maybe.
On our second day, we started off at a dog park which was less than enjoyable but had gorgeous scenery. To our left was a local college and to our right were fields as far as the eye can see with mountains bordering them.
After our frolic in the dog park we went downtown for a stroll. We probably walked six blocks of it and running down the center of the blocks was a really pretty stream. Obviously human-made but cool nonetheless. We were there on a Saturday and it was fairly deserted which felt kind of odd. A few cute shops were open but it really didn't seem like the epicenter of tourism.
Our favorite part of Helena? Nighttime. When it finally got dark at 1AM, I mean 7:30PM, the sky was pitch black with millions of bright stars. It almost made me want to sleep outside. Almost.
