Marysville, MT High 89 Low 45
(After spending most of the week at the rig while Jim fished, we got me out of the house by going to a ghost town.)
Marysville is a semi-ghost town about 25 miles from Helena.

Too bad this one wasn’t open.
Above Marysville about two miles is a ski area.
These pictures of Marysville were taken coming back down from the ski area.
The girls and Jim got some exercise.
And for our friend Diana, a rusty car.
