Rating: TV-G

The Golden Triangle in North Central Montana, Ostrich Ranch, Hi-Line Theater, Trains

Host William Marcus takes us to the Golden Triangle in north central Montana. We see Dana Boussard's stained glass windows in Choteau and then visit an ostrich ranch in Hingham, the Hi-Line Theatre in Rudyard, and Carl Mehmke's Steam Engine Museum near Great Falls. Then we tour a pet cemetery near Great Falls and take a gander at Priest Butte near Choteau. Finally, we tour the Lewis and Clark Caverns near Cardwell.

The Hi-Line Theatre in Rudyard has been remodeled – the original marquee is back in place. Carl Mehmke was inducted into the steam engine hall of fame; he died in March 2009. The pet cemetery near Great Falls continues to grow.
