Another Day In The Rain

Sometime in the night it started raining and was still raining when we got up this morning.  In addition, it was quite chilly.  But, in spite of the chilly rain, we were out and off to spend our last day in Montana.

We began by heading out to Hungry Horse to the lake where Mike and Janna were camped.  We came to

the dam.  Wow, that structure is holding

back a lot of water.  If you made the entire loop around the lake you would travel about 120 miles.

We started across the dam to find a little

construction.  It didn’t hold us up at all, and soon we were turning into the campground where

where Mike and Janna are staying.  This campground is total dry camping, but the sites were really nice.  They have a beautiful view

of the lake from the back of their site.  And,

Mike is telling Mark that they will probably put the kayak in the water later.  As, well, there were a lot

of neat trails to explore.  While we all enjoyed the view, Little

Miss Emmi enjoyed chewing on this branch.  She ran and played up and down the trails and in and out of the bushes until

she was dripping wet.  Janna had

to get a towel to dry her off.  What a way to get a bath!

Once, we had Emmi taken care of, we all decided to drive back into town for lunch.  We chose

Packer’s Roost.  It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but, the food was delicious.  I had homemade chicken and dumplings and salad.  Ellie had chili and salad, while the rest had what they called a two napkin hamburger.  Most of all, we had a great time of fellowship with friends and, when we had overstayed our time at the table…we said, see you later to Mike and Janna.  And, we certainly will look forward to the next time we get to see them.  Don’t you guys wait too long to head South!!

We then made a stop

at one last souvenir shop where Ellie found a pair of earrings she couldn’t live without.  Then, I wanted to go to the meat market to replenish my supply of ground  buffalo meat, but no luck, they were all out!

By this time, we need to get back to the RV Park to see about the fur kids and think about getting things packed up as tomorrow is travel day.  We will be moving over to Coeur D’ Alene, Idaho for the next several days.  We are looking forward to getting to see Jenny, another one of our RV Dreamer friends.

As we say goodbye to Glacier National Park, we hope that you have enjoyed visiting here through us.  If you are ever in this area, I highly recommend North American RV Park.  We have had a great stay here.

See you tomorrow from Coeur D’ Alene.


  1. We are so jealous! We can't wait to get out there and see some of this great country. I looked up that RV park you were asking about on chat last night. Gilgal Oasis RV Park. It looks very nice. The photos look like a very nice park...and also summer freee continental breakfasts!! Also free DSL internet. WOW. Well have a great time and tell Jenny Hi from us when you see her.

  2. I think your pictures and blogs have convinced us we have to take that trip next summer! Great job.

    Looking forward to hearing what you think of Coeur D’ Alene. Another brother of mine has a business in ABQ (Environment Control) and their home offices are in Coeur D' Alene.
    That may be another stop one day so will be interested in seeing some more of your great pictures!
