Big Hole National Battlefield

On our way out of town, we stopped to put gas in the Lazy Daze ($2.989/gallon) and do some grocery shopping at the Albertsons.

We drove south on CR-569 to SR-43, which was under reconstruction, and, of course, our rig got absolutely filthy! We found a campsite at Mill Creek Campground in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, unhooked, and drove back to Big Hole National Battlefield, where, on August 9, 1877, Colonel John Gibbons and 163 men of the 7th Infantry and 34 Bitterroot Volunteers attacked a Nez Perce camp of 800 men, women, and children.

Miles driven: 79.6
GPS coordinates: N45 39.136 / W113 46.839
