Canyon Ferry Lake, MT High 82 Low 53 Windy and Stormy
Before leaving Billings we were able to have dinner with our good friend Carol and stopped to visit with my Uncle Bob and Aunt Mary. He’s looking mighty sharp for being 90. Mary is my Mom’s youngest sister.
We left Billings on Thursday morning and arrived at the Silos KOA on Canyon Ferry Lake about 1:30. We got set up and then we went to Helena (about 25 miles) to get Jim’s boat. It was sitting at my brother-in-laws.
This is not a typical KOA. This is a fishing campground. Seems that a lot of folks leave their rigs here and come down on the week-end with boats and ATVs. There are several permanent sites and most are in good shape. Also, the overnight traffic is heavy.
We’ve seen some children this week-end but it is a quiet campground during the week. We have a view of the lake from our site. The RV’s you see in this picture are parked over in the BLM campground which is just across the road from us. The air was a little hazy because of the fire over by Hamilton, MT.
We are enjoying just relaxing and letting our bodies recover from all the work we did on the house. Jim went out fishing a little while on Friday and caught one small fish. But he wasn’t out very long. Week-ends are definitely for week-end warriors and we stay out of their way.
Still have our fingers crossed that the house will close on the 19th.
