Hot Springs

Located in Hot Springs, the Symes Hotel is a mecca for, well, folks who want a soak.  All kinds of folks.  Folks on motorcycles, old hippies, new hippies, you name it.  I really felt like we were in the Twilight Zone.  A trip to the past, maybe the 50's?  You go into the lobby, and it looks as though it hasn't changed since the days of Nixon.  Down the hall to the dressing room, bath "cubbies" are on either side, where you can take a private soak in a clawfoot tub.  There are 3 pools; warm, warmer, and really  hot.  We stuck with warm.  A nice way to spend an afternoon!

Baked Goods!

We made our first trip out to Polebridge Mercantile, to have one of their "pasties", a meat filled sandwich baked in  homemade heavenly bread.  And cookies....

Today we hiked the Danny On trail, up Big Mounain.  Beautiful day for a hike, and there were lots of  flowers to be seen.  We just got new phones, and the camera on these things is crazy good!

Dinner with the kids

Enjoyed dinner with Amber and Mark, at a new restaurant we hadn't known about.  Tamarack Brewing, in Lakeside.  A beautiful drive past Flathead Lake, and outside seating next to a lovely creek.  Sorry the pic is blurred, either me moving or I smudged my bad!

Beautiful day for a hike

 The weather has cooled down, enough for us to want to get out and hike a bit.  We kept it local, over at Whitefish Trail this time.

The overlook at Skyles Lake.  On June 6, a grizzly was sighted just below this overlook, sitting on a "kill".  We didn't see anything in the local paper, it was on Facebook.  Kind of close in for a grizzly, I thought.

 A new learning center pavilion has been built since last year, and is available to groups for many different uses.  The citizens of Whitefish are really dedicated to making their city a great place to visit and live.

Houston, we have a problem

Our trailer heater stopped working, and we kind of need it still in the mornings up here. Just to warm things up.  But Darrell was unable to remove the furnace, it was so buried under the stove, that we had to take the whole trailer in so they could fix it.  Just trying to save a few dollars, but no go.  Trailer and furnace were back the same day, fixed and ready to go.

Out and about

We did a 5 mile hike at Herron Park, and Luna paused to check out the flowers.
On Whitefish Lake, a bald eagle is looking for breakfast..

As we return..............

Happy to see Flathead Lake in the background, and Luna is happy to see any lake at all.....she frolics in Lake McDonald.

Along the way.......

 First stop was in Moab.  Some pretty views from our campground and an interesting promontory.
