Road Trip – Day 7 – Glacier National Park – Kalispell, MT

Today was a trip through Glacier National Park along Going-to-the-Sun Road. One of the first sights was a brown bear having breakfast along the roadside. He/she (we don’t know which) was close enough that we could hear the munching sounds.

All along the route we saw awe inspiring sights, mountain peaks, snow, rivers, waterfalls, even some of the few remaining glaciers–will they have to change the name when the last glacier melts?

There was so much to experience that I’ll need to write a separate blog entry and include more pictures. But for now–just a sampling.

Here I am leaning against a Western Red Cedar. I have resided both of the houses I’ve owned (so far) using cedar shingles from Western Red Cedars such as this.

Finally at the end of a long day, we got to our home for the night. This was a wonderful loft above a barn in Kalispell, MT. We found it on Airbnb. The farm had free-range chickens roaming around the yard. Meredith and Seth, our hosts, provided us with fresh eggs (gathered that day), turnips (picked an hour earlier) and some other farm fresh greens our of their garden.

The farm was midway between Columbia Falls and Kalispell on the western side of the park.
