Wifi not the best but works most time. Got TV again! I am happy to watch things at night, especially news. Bikes work great but we both agree need new seats on the bikes before our butts hurt too much.
Bikes toward the park and found the Great Northern Hotel and the cafe in the railroad car. We had coffee and breakfast there- good homemade food. Pleasant people too. Went to Discovery Center across the street and learned more about the area.
Had dinner at Discovery Center – great Mexican food and drinks. Rode a little at night but tried to stay out of traffic.
AS soon as I can get a good Wifi – I will upload pictures and video to google drive.
Ride was not bad to West Glacier and the view is outstanding. We are staying at Moose Creek RV Park with is only about 2,5 miles from the gate to the park. Lots of room and near Lake Five. Great to bike and walk around.
It looks like things are warming up to the 60s or 70s this
week here. We are planning to move to
West Glacier and see the other side of the mountains. We plan to stay a few days or longer if we
find things to do there. The electric
bikes work great and there are more trials there to try the bikes with and
enjoy the area. It is also the more
touristy type of place. We may head to
Apgar (a state park) to stay for a little more peace and quiet. We will try to get one last dinner in before
leaving East Glacier Park.
Rented a car and we went to Two Medicine campsite today to
check out RV camping. Yea, we finally
got into Glacier Park- got our life passes and went to look around. Great views and wonderful sites. Looks like it will be fun, and we may try a
day or so. Then we started off to St
Mary’s site. The route 49 was very curvy
with sheer drop offs if you missed. I
got a bit sick on the road, but Berny did great driving. I held the camera with my sys shut so I hope
the pictures are ok. Just before the crossroads
of route 49 and route 89, we saw a little bear in the woods to the right. Little bear was to small and quick to get a
picture of it. We finally got to St
Mary’s on another curvy road. Took
pictures on the way too.
Once at the site 0 we walked into Glacier Park, again. It is spectacular on the view (see the
pictures and movies). The ranger station
had a bit of history to see and read.
Had lunch in the local restaurant and then headed back – not on the
windy road! We could get the RV up to
St Mary’s but would have to take route 89 in.
May try that another year. Made
it home and was exhausted. Did not do
much but it was fun.
Watched a group of young campers tent it out. No modesty and little on. How come the mosquitos do not attack them as much as me! Went bike riding into the village. Boy is it run down. But it is early in the season yet too.
Settled in and relaxing in East Glacier Park and the town has changed a little. The people are working on cleaning up the park we are at mowing, weed whacking, and getting the trash out. First the water went out – a pipe broke in the cabins and they had to shut the water off to fix it. That took most of the day before. Today, we moved the rig so the mower could get the site better and they were going to work on the electric poles. So we went on the generator most of the afternoon. Finally, we moved back as we wanted to eat.
Later – the maintenance person came and he and Berny
talked. Berny came back and said we were
moving to the other side as they electrician told them they had to rip up all
the wiring and conduit to fix things. So
we moved into the trees on the other side and set up again. Watching that guy with the Ditch Digger was
entertaining enough. We were not sure if
he was going to get ate by the thing, hit a power cable so we could practice
CPR, or just kill something. But he
worked till it got dark. This morning
the ditches are dug, wires are pulled, and the old box moved.
The entertainment continues. We have little internet so blogging is hard an upload of pics impossible till later.
