Both our guides from yesterday recommended we see the Museum of the Rockies so we had the hotel shuttles take us. Montana is apparently a great place to find fossils and the majority of the museum is fossils and bones that has been collected in this area including the largest t-rex skull in the world.
It is quite an interesting section and I spent way more time reading plaques than usual. There were also displays on early settlers to the area and native Americans. I believe the warner Brothers display was a traveling one but it was also pretty neat to see how these early cartoons were made.
Our guide Kevin had informed us that there was a good café right near the museum called Sola. It was a bit pricy but one of the farm to table restaurants so very tasty. From there we walked about one mile to check out some of the stores in the downtown area.
This was capped by beers in the White Dog Brewery. I was surprised to see an actual white dog running around and I thought the dog tag labels for the different beers were a nice touch. The Best Western hotel shuttle picked us up to get home and we spent the rest of the evening enjoying the hotel amenities like the hot tub and buy one get one free drinks.
