Yesterday morning Anna fixed a big breakfast for us before we headed for Columbia Falls. Callie & Sadie had a last play before we left. We really enjoyed our visit with Aunt Anna & she wrote off names & addresses & phone #s of her family & other Kruse relatives for us to look up when we're in their areas.
It took just a couple of hours to drive from Ronan to Columbia Falls. We drove beside Flathead Lake for most of the drive - it's a huge natural lake. The Columbia Falls RV Park is very nice with gravel roads & spaces but grass dividers between the spaces - the people here are very helpful - & it's a PA park so our stay is 1/2 price. They gave us a map of Glacier Nat'l Park when we checked in (that's obviously the big draw here) & showed us what parts are open at this time. The Going-to-the-Sun Road is being plowed from both ends but isn't open yet - & the snow they've been having this week isn't helping. But we'll look forward to seeing whatever we can see.
When we packed up yesterday morning, David noticed that there was water in the storage tank beside the water heater. Uh oh! He dried the carpet & wall with a fan yesterday afternoon & then checked it again this morning after we showered - not good news. So we drove into Kalispell & bought a new water heater & got it installed this afternoon. We would have rather spent that money on fun stuff on our trip, but we're glad it happened while we were still in the States.
