Our base is Jordan, Montana and we stay at Fellman's motel; air-conditioning, clean beds and hot showers. Jordan is the county seat for Garfield County and while very small has all the amenities needed; an excellent health center, grocery store, auto service, ice cream stand and very quiet nights. Additional activities include experiencing ranch life on large working cattle ranches, hiking, rock collecting, nature photography, championship fishing on Fort Peck Lake, astronomy, field geology and relaxing. Jordan is just a day away from a wonderful western United States vacation plan.
