Driving through Montana we came upon a beautiful sculpture of two Blackfeet Warriors. The artwork was a creative and innovative design and the subject stirred feelings of respect for the Native American nation that once was. Many activities on this adventure have constantly reminded me of what the White Man did to the Native American population. The books I’ve been reading to familiarize myself to the areas I’m traveling have all had some incredibly violent episode of what happened as we settled this country. Most notably are the events in the books about Lewis & Clark, Alaska and “The Trail of Tears”. What is it in human nature that gives us permission to kill? I don’t get it. Anyway, from the car I thoroughly enjoyed the landscape of Big Sky Montana. We spent the night at a really neat hotel with an indoor atrium filled with waterfalls and animals of the region. Too many stuffed animals… but this is the west.
