We left Coeur D’Alene at 830 this morning…we only had just over 200 miles to get to our next stop..
we had debated if we should travel via Sandpoint or the I-90…the I-90 won out..
It was an easy drive for me..all I have to do is sit in the passenger seat..take a few photos and look at the map every now and then..
Bart helped me with some of the navigation duties..
never mind the fact that the map is upside down?
the highest elevation today was Lookout pass..only a mere 4860 feet..
And then we were in Montana..Big Sky Country..
..one more state added to our map…
We stopped in the town of St Regis..wonder if it was named for Regis Philbin?..no Kathy Lee Gifford or Kelly Ripa sightings?..Hey, Regis?..where are you?
we made a couple of purchases and carried on…
The Clark Fork River..
..and another body of water is added to the ‘Flying Walenda’s’ List..
..a little spot on the side of the river..just for our boy..it was called ‘Para-dice’!
..then it was time for some wind…two hands on the wheel for about sixty miles..
..lots of rolling hills and gusty side winds..
and then there it was…..down the hill…Flathead Lake..
almost at our destination..one more stop at a view point overlooking Flathead Lake..
and we chatted with a group of motorcycle riders..they were from just outside Salem, Oregon and were heading towards Whitefish, Montana..
..another 30 miles to go..
..for a week we will call this park “home'”..our spot is on the shore of Flathead River.. G2..
..this is the view from our chairs…
..the river is running very fast, so much to the dismay of Tucker he won’t be dipping his paws in this part of the Flathead River..
There is lots of boat and other floating devices..this is just a small sampling from the first hour or so..
.we are so glad to be here..a beautiful spot..perfection in the making…
..I do believe we are going to enjoy our week..
Stay tuned more to come..
