USA 8 July: Roberts, MT - Hardin, MT

We all slept soundly at our campsite last night after the run up to Beartooth Pass the previous day. Our sleep was even sounder as the babbling brook adjacent to our tents soothed us. We woke up refreshed to a bright sunny morning.

Not for the first time on this run the sky was a deep, vast blue and the sun shone all day. Although we didn’t have any ceremonies today, in Billings we had two regional television interviews and a newspaper interview.

The Billings Gazette interviewed the women’s team and they were filmed running their miles from Red Lodge.

The men’s team were filmed and interviewed by KULR8 and KTVQ in Billings. As soon as we did the first interview we ran down two blocks and the second TV station were there waiting for us. It was wonderful to get so much media coverage in Montana.

Like the vastness of the sky the people of Montana have big hearts and they all so what to know about the run. With the media coverage more people of Montana will know about the World Harmony Run. I’m sure we can expect more people approaching the runners tomorrow.

Just outside Billings we met two young boys, Josh and Jared riding their bikes. They took great delight in holding the torch.

This area of Montana is much different from the time since we entered the state. There are less trees here and in some areas, no trees at all. The landscape is flatter as we are approaching the Prairies and the horizon just seems to go on and on.

Our campsite, 7th Ranch RV camp just outside Garryowen this evening is in beautiful surroundings in Custer County, and yes we are close to the famous battlefield of Little Big Horn.

The landscape here has a sense of timelessness and serenity. We are totally in awe here as we sit down and just soak in the atmosphere. Tomorrow promises to be another tremendous day in Montana. The weather forecast for tomorrow is hot!

A beautiful sunset to bring us into a peaceful slumber.
