The state park is about 20 miles southeast of Bozeman, and I want to visit a museum there, but it is also very beautiful here. The campground is located in a valley with mountains on both sides and slightly out of the main tourist traffic areas.
I arrived in a terrible wind and rain storm yesterday afternoon, but managed to get set up OK and fill my water tank. Got soaked, but that is not unusual. Once I am inside, I am very cozy and comfortable.
Anyway, today I drove up the mountain to see the caverns themselves. The road is supposed to have a 9% grade but I didn't think it was too bad.
Good thing I set my parking brake!
Nice thing about the half-mile hike back to the visitor center was the view of the mountains and this beautiful little valley in the distance.
In spite of my bruises and lumps, and being exhausted from this cave tour, this is a beautiful place, so I will be back again.
