Getting Back and Getting Ready to Move On

We have been away for about a week attending the wedding of two very good friends. It was a lovely weekend with lots of home cooked food, great people (including many pies!) and contra dancing. We also got to have a brief visit with my son Mark, who is building a yurt.

Now that we're back home, it's time to wrap up our stay here in the Flathead Valley of Montana. Boy have we loved it. Something that will make it a little easier to leave is the smoke in the atmosphere from fires in nearby valleys for the past two weeks. The crisp clean air and terrific clarity of the views is much reduced. But the weather has still been perfect. Cool at night, with warm dry days.

This campground has also been wonderful. If you're ever traveling through here, I'd recommend Eagle Nest RV Resort with no reservations. I'm not sure what makes it a "resort" but it does have a nice pool.

We'll spend the weekend getting ourselves and our vehicles ready for the drive, with a few paddles in the lake to break up the work. On Monday we head south to Dillon, MT for an overnight. Then on to Bear Lake in southwest Idaho for about a week. Then a couple of weeks in northern Utah. We will end up just outside of Zion National Park for a month.  Should be getting some interesting photos along the way.
