When crossing the Plains, you don’t have to seek out trails to go for a hike. Just pull over anywhere and start walking away from the road, towards the horizon. On my way east, I stopped along highway 200 to let the dogs run through the tall grass and watch a storm swirl above the plains. Under that big Montana sky, the only weather more photogenic than blue skies is storm clouds.
A walk everyday is the second Rule of the Roadtrip. For the rest, check out my post Roadtripping Rules!
