Golf course
We got up early this morning and golfed at the Anaconda Old Works Golf Course....what a beautiful course!! It was designed by Jack Nicklaus, built on top of contaminated waste from the old copper smelters. There was 1.3 million cubic yards of dirt moved onto the site and several of the original buildings remain. He used 14,000 cubic yards of the the " black slag" from the many slag piles around the area to complete the unique black sand/slag traps. It is one the the coolest golf course we have golfed, although I am not sure our scores reflect what a great time we had!!!
We finished up around 2 pm and headed 270 kms. to Big Timber Montana. We stayed at a cute little KOA campground that was attached to a waterpark. Paul saw the bench he wants to make !!! I'm not sure I want it in my yard.
