Trip Update

Wednesday we traveled from Helena to Kalispell (both in Montana). Most of the trip was on roads with one lane for each direction and all the good stuff was on the other side. We knew we’d be returning and the good stuff would be on the side we were travelling (speed limit 70mph 115 kmh). Yesterday (Thurs) we went on our tour of Glacier National Park. It’s going to take a lot of time to organize and present all the photos so I’ll report when we get back home. Today we retraced our steps somewhat and went from Kalispell to Idaho Falls, Idaho. The scenery was great and the deciduous trees were just starting to turn. There’s a week to go in August (equivalent of February in the Southern Hemisphere) and the trees are starting to turn? That’s the north country.

There were a lot of lakes and the scenery is something you could see in the Adirondacks of New York State, Lake Tahoe, or Switzerland. There are equivalent places in the Southern Hemisphere, I’m sure, and NZ comes to mind. Here’s the best:

  5. I’ve heard a number of comments lately that leaves are turning early this year. Leaves turning now is pretty unusual, even in the mountains up north. I’ve enjoyed Glacier National Park too; glad you got to visit there! I expect some pretty pics from there!

    Have a terrific day. 🙂
