We woke up to a sunny but chilly and windy day in Spokane. We walked to Riverfront Park where Spokane River divides into a waterfall in several stages. After some photos we walked towards downtown and visited Macy’s for some shopping. I bought a brand shirt and a pair of shoes. It’s crazy how much money they add to imported clothes and shoes in Sweden. I paid about 300 SEK here in the US for the shirt and shoes… back home in Sweden I would have to pay about 1200 SEK for the very same shirt and shoes. We also visited a book store and next door they had a small store with arcade games, card games, puzzles among other things. I was looking around and found different games with “Family Guy”, you know the cartoon TV series . If I had had more space left in my suitcase I probably would have bought some of the games.
We kept on driving along I-90-East and drove through northern Idaho. High up in the Bitterroot Range it started to snow (again). But pretty soon we drove into Montana and the snowing stopped when we got down from the mountains again. When we got closer to Missoula we could finally see Rocky Mountains far away. The time zone changed when we crossed the border into Montana and suddenly we had to hurry up finding a place to stay for the night due to the 1-hour loss. We drove by several villages with signs that said “No Services” which is great so you don’t have to make an unnecessarily stop. Thumbs up! Finally in Deer Lodge we found a staying for the night, beautifully situated and surrounded by Rocky Mountains.
