Hyundai Genesis 3.8 (US)

Having wrapped up a tour of Yellowstone National Park, now I am resuming my trek north. This photo was taken during a quick rest stop just north of Helena, Montana; as it turns out, this is my final stop before the Canadian border.

 

The rest of my drive for the day puts me out into the prairies, past Great Falls to Sweetgrass, which is the border crossing. The Canadian portion of the drive would remain in the open prairies, taking me past Lethbridge and Fort MacLeod into Calgary, before bringing me into Canmore in the mountains for the night.

 

This being the day after a gun massacre in Colorado had killed 12 teens at a cinema, Canadian authorities were stopping every foreigner at the border for a secondary inspection (looking for contraband weapons, criminal records, etc), and that added up to a 3-hour detention/delay for every American that day. I would not get to Canmore until 2 the next morning.
