MT – Day 29 – Kayaking at Foys Lake

2 photos in this post. What a gorgeous lake! Whilst there is no beach and quite a steep climb to get down, it’s worth it! Here are Sydnee and Daniel. Yes the water really is this color! Why? The minerals in the glacial run-off. This lake is also not muddy. Jessie tells me that this lake is the non-tourist area. It was not crowded like many of the other lakes in this area. That is an island that you... read more

MT – Day 27 – Climbing Twin Falls!

7 photos in this post. The day we drove to Logan Pass when we were camped by St. Mary on the east side, the rain was coming horizontally in sheets! It was miserable. Having done some more research and knowing how busy the parking is at Logan Pass, we deliberately left our visit there until later in the day actually arriving up there at 7pm. This time we were driving from West Glacier. Someone had warned... read more

MT – Day 23 – McDonald Falls, Glacier National Park

3 photos in this post. At first glance, McDonald Falls seems like a boring stop by the roadside as the viewpoint is quite a ways down from the falls and not that clear. Never fear, there is a way down! As we were looking at the falls, we realized that there were people on the opposite end (east) of the pull-in right on top of the falls. How to get there! The kids soon discovered an... read more
