It is true. We are still in Montana and finding out what it is like to stay in one place for a week. The front window of the RV caught a big rock and our insurance is terrific-will pay all by $100. However, it takes 5 days to get one sent to a repair shop-but, the insurance people find us the shop based on where we are. So we knew that we wanted to be close to Glacier and could quickly get back to Kalispell to have it put in.
This is our first long stay in one place since actually being on our own. So I am learning how to operate in a slower mode. Not so easy after these past 6 months of hustling. Also, I am used to being of service and I am having to redefine myself. Phone calls to girlfriends help, because we talk about this and my friends not only get me but expected this to happen.
The slower than planned travel time (we don’t like to drive more than 3 to 4 hours and often 2 hours is perfect) is also redefining our trip. We realize moving north this late is good. We have never been out of spring on this trip. Glacier’s Highway to the Sun only opened a week ago and so Banff and Lake Louise in Canada are also getting late summer if any. Wildflowers from spring are just opening as we move north and stay in the Rocky Mountains.
Russ thinks we will stay in the west and not move toward the east coast until spring. So possibly the Dakotas, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and winter in Tucson? I don’t know. Of course I love the west, so we will see. Glad we are not in the heat of the east!
Three days ago we took a shuttle up to Logan Pass on the Highway to the Sun and it was cloudy and cold. Pretty impressive how deep those glaciers can dig out a valley. Glad we did not drive ourselves, the drivers were all white knuckled and could not possibly view anything but the waterfalls coming down on the road!
Russ says he is having the time of his life. By the way I did not put in my picture at the snow, where I stole his jacket.
Pictures are mostly taken through shuttle windows, so hopefully I can pull up some decent ones.
