Touring Havre, MT

On Friday morning, we participated in the Havre underground tour called “Beneath the Streets.”  It is similar to the tour in Moose Jaw, SK. These were definitely cellar rooms, but the ones in SK are mostly tunnels. The largest room was the brothel. They had some beds set up, but not authentically because they spaced them further apart. On the walls above the beds are the original numbers where “transactions” occurred. There were curtains between the beds. Did the lack of privacy add ambience?
 Here are some more reputable businesses:

In the afternoon, we went to Fort Assiniboine.  Our guide was so passionate about local history. I was most fascinated by the Buffalo Soldiers.  They were an all black regiment. Also, there was close cooperation between this fort and the forts in Western Canada. 

We ended the day with this glorious sunset and rainbow. 


Hansen Family Campground near Havre, MT

On Friday, I was up early with Poppy. Hansen Family Campground is located between Havre and Chinook. They have a little menagerie on the grounds, but also there are neighbouring farms with animals too. These horses came to visit me and Poppy in the morning. 

The campground has an assortment of ducks, geese, chickens, peacocks, goats, donkeys. The barn that we are using for the dining hall also has a section for the critters to come in. Many of them sleep in inside stalls. Well, the little goats are most curious and most amusing. 


All of the sites are pull-through with full hook-ups, but unfortunately, they don’t have washrooms or a shower house yet.
