We are back to the land of cell phone signals and wifi connections' , so can start updating the thread again. We've got lots of photos and this will take several sessions.
After a day of this we traveled from Yellowstone to Glacier National Parks. Gee, they looked so close on a map.
Got sandwiches and such in West Glacier, entered the park, and this is where we had lunch on Lake McDonald:
Had our rock skipping contest. Tim won.
Celebrating his win.
Going to The Sun Road.
Unfortunately this is as far as we got. For those knowing Glacier, Going To The Sun Road was closed at the Avalanche rest area, due to snow removal ahead. Again, this is mid-June, and we heard that last year it took till July. We understand that the road did open last Friday for the 2012 season. W felt a bit robbed, as we both were looking forward to it. The up side is that we now have a reason to return.
So we left Glacier and headed up 93(?) through the. town of Eureka, MT, to the Canadian border, eh. Zero traffic. Took off our helmets, sat and pleasantly chatted with the Canadian Customs agent with nobody else behind us or around. Truly a pleasant experience. Meanwhile, over our left shoulder was the US entry and it looked like a top secret entrance for some sci fi movie, with all the barricades and bright yellow paint. Those nasty Canookians better not try to invade the U.S. here! ;)
More to come, as we've now gotten to the Icefields Parkway, Jasper, Hyder in Alaska, and are drying out in Smithers, BC, working our way toward Seattle.
