Cut Bank, Shelby, Havre, Malta: Cities on The Hi-Line, Montana

Northern Montana has numerous interesting cities and towns that sprung up along the “Hi-Line” railroad line and US Highway 2. In between, there’s a lot of empty space, so I’ve edited that part out, leaving you with my Drivelapse around each of these towns, in this order:

East Glacier Park Village
Cut Bank
Galata (almost missed this one!)
Savoy (on a dirt-road detour that follows the railroad tracks)

US 2 continues east from Malta, but I had to turn south and head to Billings.

If you ‘d like to see the entire drive, including all the empty space in between towns, you can check out the slow version:

I made this trip in July 2017. Video shot with a Brinno TLC-200 Pro time-lapse camera mounted on my roof with a homemade magnetic case. I travel with two Brinno cameras – one facing forward, the other in reverse. Sometimes the reverse camera captures better video (fewer raindrops and bugs hit the rear-view lens).
