We begin our trip again
with another cab to the airport,
another delay due to
another missing captain.
Delta assures us they have a pilot this time.
His eventual arrival is greeted with applause.
We are off.
It is a sunny summer afternoon in Helena.
We make the most of our too-little time here:
peek inside the Montana State Capitol,
take a history tour on a toy train,
walk through Last Chance Gulch, and
dine at Lucca’sbecause
it is good and it is
nearby and it is
open when everything else is closed
Helena’s historic heart is lovely and inviting, but
where are all the people?
