Welcome to this edition of News for the Week—a look at boomer travel ideas, news and deals.
Last Sunday, Alan and I packed up the car, grabbed our Montana Road and Recreation Atlas, and headed out for a two-night getaway to Grey Cliffs Ranch near Three Forks (our fourth visit). It was perfect timing for two baby boomers experiencing cabin fever.
Grey Cliff’s chef, Rory Kain, spoiled us with outstanding meals. Mother Nature continued the spoiling with bright, sunny days. Our road trip route included the Big Hole Valley, the ghost towns of Nevada and Virginia Cities, and the ranching community of Ennis.
On the way home, we took a scenic detour from Anaconda to Phillipsburg and back to the interstate at Drummond. What an awesome boomer getaway!
