Back From Billings

Sorry for the extended radio silence...

Went to Billings, MT Monday and Tuesday on business, getting back Tuesday night. I know know why Montana is called Big Sky Country.

Billings is pretty, in a wide open kind of way. There's no dramatic mountains in the background, but the city sits in the valley of the Yellowstone River, which has carved some pretty impressive cliffs around the city. The airport sits on a plateau above the city, while the entire city fits down in the valley below. The view from the Billings airport is accordingly impressive.

Billings is also the easten end of the Montana Rail Link, so I was able to score some pictures of America's coolest regional railroad. Mainly switchers, though; no road power.

Trip report with pictures to follow...
