Welcome to Reed Point, Montana.
Barely a stop in the railroad line,
Known for sheep.
Sheep seem to know where the best grass in town is.
We should come back for the annual running of the sheep in September.
It was snowing when we got here,
Enough to make a snowman and a snowball to throw at Mitch. (Vickie told me to do it.) My aim was off.
After the snowball fight, I walked around town to get some pictures before the snow melted.
Icicles hanging off the roof.
They may still need that woodpile awhile.
Keeping with the sheep theme..."Reed Point Welcomes Ewe."
Sign on the old Hotel.
Front of the Hotel.
The Livery is right next door. Drop your horse off there when staying at the Hotel.
And right next door to that is the Waterhole Saloon. Everything you need.
The Waterhole is quiet Saturday morning, but it was open last night. Want to see inside?
Some of us ate there. (And others quenched their thirst...no names)
A glance inside
This friendly dog was the official greeter.
The pizza was good.
Continuing our walk...
Fire danger is low today.
Still snowing in the hills.
These geese are probably wondering what happened to Spring.
Walking toward the Yellowstone River.
Bridge over the river.
The river is swift, probably from all the snowmelt.
A friendly local couple we met last night gave us directions to some scenic areas nearby where scenes from the movie, "Horse Whisperer" were filmed. Hopefully the weather will dry out enough for us to go touring there in a day or two.
