MT – Day 36 – Tim’s Fish and Chips, Creston, BC

Here’s the picture you have all been waiting for when we visited Tim’s Fish and Chips: This is just ONE plate of Cod and Chips. (Halibut is available but more expensive.) The three piece is actually SIX pieces with unlimited chips. The five of us ate THREE plates – 18 pieces of fish and the chips. We did not need to ask for anymore chips. Whilst not cheap (approx. $25 Canadian per plate)... read more

MT – Day 36 – Fort Steele, BC

11 photos in this post. Wanting the children to have experience crossing the border and spending a different currency, earlier this week we headed north into British Columbia, Canada.

It was not long before they were in the water although not in quite such a dramatic way as Michael and Daniel. It didn’t make any... read more

MT – Day 27 – Two Medicine 9 Mile Hike!

8 photos in this post. Michael had been missing out on all our hikes due to working SO on Saturday we all headed over to Two Medicine which is on the eastern side of Glacier, just a few miles up from the east entrance. You drive past Lower Two Medicine Lake and then park by Two Medicine Lake. (Upper Two Medicine Lake is much farther on.) There is no Visitor’s Center here due to it being much less... read more
