Trails - Camping

Left Butte and stopped at the Grant-Kohrs National Monument for a stamp. This is one of the oldest cattle ranches in the west. Kohrs ran cattle over 10 million acres of land. We thought the ranch would be about cattle but the monument was about the cowboys who worked the ranch and how they lived. 
This is the Cook at his Chuck Wagon, he explained how the cowboys were fed when they were away from the ranch and gave us Cowboy Coffee. It was good! He also had a hat band that was hitched horse hair. He told us where the Montana State Prison shop was so we had to go look at the hitchings. 
Spent too much time here and had to hustle to get to Spokane before dark.
Made it with plenty of time, start work tomorrow, again.
