So we did get to the meat market, Thielen Meats, and did stock the freezer pretty well.

As we drove we saw acres and acres of almost blindingly bright yellow-green fields. We weren't sure what it was, so doing a bit of research we found they were Canola fields. Now we thought Canola was a made up term developed by Canada called Canadian Oil, to disguise the actual oil which was rape seed. Turns out the Canadians actually developed an entirely new plant called Canola and it is grown all over the northern tier of the US as well as in Canada.

but the picture just can't do it justice

We got into Montana and spent a couple nights outside a small town of Havre, and it was the first the topography provided a little relief, it had been flat for some time.
