A few weeks ago we went to Miles City and on the way home I wanted to take a little detour and show the kids this really cool bridge spanning the Yellowstone.
It’s a one lane bridge. It’s very old and starting to show wear. It is VERY loud as you drive over it…. sounds like a train.
So we took the kids across the bridge and some (Savanna) were scared and some (Scott and Em) remembered that we went across it once before. There is a fishing access just across the bridge, but with the recent flooding it was inaccessible. We turned around and heard a strange sound….. flat tire! Out in the middle of nowhere!
I took the twins for a walk up to the bridge while Troy and the big kids set to work on the tire.
We saw pretty wild flowers.
The road had recently been graded and it must have kicked up this railroad spike, which we then ran over!
After helping us out he went on about his business. We later found that we had all the right pieces, we just didn’t know where to look for them! Turns out that the handle for lowering the the spare tire is located ….. under the hood!
