A big thank you to the Big Sky Motel in Roundup for hosting the men's team.

We are also very grateful to the Autumn's Inn in Roundup for a restful stay.

Sarankhuu from Mongolia enjoys the early morning run.

Our coordinator for Montana, Moni from Seattle, finishes his final run before leaving the Peace Run Team. We are so grateful to him for giving us an amazing Montana experience!

He took us to many Boys & Girls Clubs, nice cafes and organized meetings with local runners. Moni also found the most beautiful camp ground near Martinsdale where a green hill underneath a blue sky looks just like Mr. Bill Gate's photo for his Windows XP.

We arrive in Ingomar, population:14, the only place to sleep in 100 miles and home town of the famous Jersey Lilly Bar & Eatery. In the beginning of the 20th century this ghost town was the world's biggest exporter of sheep wool, sending some 2 million pounds of wool per year on trains throughout the country.

The local mail man has to get up at 1 am in Billings to drive to Ingomar to deliver letters and parcels.

Inside the Jersey Lilly; built in 1914 as the local bank. In the basement there are still the old vaults.

This is June and Boots, the owners of The Jersey Lilly. They arranged for the Peace Run Team to sleep at the local community center. Thanks a bunch!
