During the summer and fall of 2018 the Pacific Northwest was literally on fire. My partner and I had hoped to head to Glacier Park and on to Canada but alas, it was not meant to be. This past September (2019) was a totally different story. We finished up at my family reunion in northern Idaho on the beautiful St. Joseph river over Labor Day weekend and headed straight for Montana and beyond. Rain was never far off but we enjoyed some spectacular scenery just the same.
Montana is the birthplace of my mother. As a child, I spent many a summer swimming in Flathead Lake with cousins and riding ponies around their family farms. It is a magical place and deserves its nickname, "Big Sky Country." We learned a few things on this trip... number one, you must reserve campsites well ahead in Glacier Park and in most popular parks in Canada. Our lack of planning made our trip a bit challenging but we still had a ball! Enjoy the slide shows by viewing this blog in your browser. Here are some of our favourite shots from the Montana part of our trip.
This spring, spending our time trying to be physically distant but also working hard to maintain our social connections, we have to look forward to all the adventures to come. At least that is what I remind myself when I am feeling deflated. I hope you enjoyed this little photoblog through our eyes. Please check out some of my past blog posts if you are feeling even more daring. You can experience multiple countries, amazing food, and even some sailing.
While we wait out this pandemic let's be kind to each other. Peace.
