Montana Hi-Line: Highway 2 Across MT & ND

From Sleeping Buffalo Hot Springs we traveled east on Hwy 2. After Hinsdale, MT look on left for dinosaur figure statues by Buck Samuelson.

Next is Glasgow where you can get gas, fast food, or shop at Albertsons. Glasgow and west on Hwy 2 is called the Montana Hi-Line. Glasgow begins gentle rolling hill country.

Wolf Point, MT has Exxon gas, McDonald’s, Carquest, and Homestead Inn. It gets hilly and lovely after Wolf Point. About that time the sun set so it was too dark to see. Really, though, I wouldn’t recommend driving at night.

The names of the waterways along this Highway were fun. For instance, there was Big Muddy Creek and Little Muddy Creek 🙂

Highway 2 gets bumpy after Culbertson.

This is about where we started listening to the radio. 101.1 out of Williston played an eclectic mix of music that I really enjoyed. within a couple hours I heard Kenny Chesney, Garbage, Pink Floyd, Bon Jovi, the Black Eyed Peas, R.E.M., Billy Joel, Collective Soul, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Eric Clapton, ZZ Top, and Gnarls Barkly. Crazy, right? I loved it!

We crossed the state line into South Dakota and Hwy 2 became a 4-lane highway with a large median. I still would refrain from driving at night due to poor visibility (It gets super dark).

Williston, ND is officially the city of the truck… I saw like 1 car. We stayed overnight, or in RV lingo we boondocked overnight, at the Williston Walmart. A security guard patrolled the parking lot all night, which was nice. We also boondocked overnight at the Walmart in Grand Forks, ND.
