Missoula - University of Montana

(Missoula, MT) Hi 73 Lo 55 -- It rained off and on most of the day. Jim found a highly rated local Greek restaurant on Yelp, so we went there and had gyros for lunch and did a driving tour of downtown Missoula. (Click on the pictures to enlarge them.)

Missoula is home to the University of Montana. We checked out the small but pretty campus, including the football stadium home of the Montana Grizzlies.

We're not sure what this building was, but it had a pretty clock tower peeking above the trees.

There’s a large hill behind the school. We saw moving figures that we at first thought were animals, but it was people walking and running on a trail.

Shortly after we got back home a quick storm came through. Nothing severe, but after our dry summer traveling through the southwest and west, we’re now getting back to the rainy parts of the country. I'm sure we'll be dodging lots of weather on the way to Florida. We’re hoping to get some sightseeing done in between rain showers.

I finished another afghan. I used the C2C (corner to corner) stitch, which makes it so much easier and faster to do an afghan. Can you tell I like bright colors?

You've had a great summer and only one more state to fill in if I'm looking at your map correctly :-).
