Yesterday we woke up to overcast skies and cool temperatures. We left Bear Canyon Campground about 8:45. As we traveled along we were amazed at the magnificent terrain of the Big Sky State. As we were approaching Butt, MT. and nearing the Continental Divide it began to rain. The rain was a mere drizzle and just as we were crossing the Continental Divide to our amazement we saw snowflakes mixed with the rain. To see snow falling in June was a real treat for us southerners. As were traveling along U.S. 93 we spotted a road named Detwiler Road so I just had to stop and take a picture. Near the end of our travel day, as we were driving along the east side of Flathead Lake, a small brown bear came up from the lake and ran across the road in front of us and scrambled up the side of the mountain. We traveled 338 miles and saw so much amazing scenery; arriving here about 5:30pm.
We are camping at Glacier Campground about a mile from the west entrance to Glacier National Park. After setting up and supper we went into Glacier Park to see if we could spot any wild animals at dusk; no animals were in sight. We got back to the camper late, thus the delay in posting our daily blog.
