MapQuest, in its infinite wisdom, told us to take I-90 east to Seattle. The phrase “east to Seattle” somehow didn’t seem quite right to us, and we stopped at a semi-abandoned cafe and rock shop in the middle of nowhere Montana. This dog came out and befriended us. Behind the shop was a house, and inside the house was a kindly old lady with a road atlas. She ran the shop until a local resident turned her in for having styrofoam in the ceiling. The cafe is shut down for now, but she and her husband make a living selling homemade lamps around the area and on eBay. By the way, the correct way to Seattle is I-90 _west_.
