First Aired Tuesday, November 01, 2005

Stop by a Tea Shop in Anaconda, Gebo, and the Cowboy Bar & Museum.

Along the Missouri River south of Great Falls we meet a woman who gathers fiber from her family farm animals to make an intriguing variety of products. We stop by a Tea Shop in Anaconda for some cookies and Earl Grey. A naturalist guides us to see some of Montana's diverse butterfly population. We visit all that remains of the town of Gebo: the cemetery, which is being researched and preserved by a woman from Fromberg. And we cool our heels at the Cowboy Bar & Museum in Fromberg - the ideal place for a cold beer and a warm recollection.

Bud Cheff, who guided us through the Ninepipe Museum near Pablo, died June 27, 2011. He was 96.
