Jun 25, 2019 - Kalispel, MT.

We are here for 3 nights. We spent the first day driving through Glacier National Park. We drove the Road to the Sun up to the pass. It was awesome and very crowded. We could not find a parking spot at the visitors center, so we headed back down. Then we did a little shopping and had dinner. The following day we went and spent time with friends Steve and Mona, who summer here and in Sun Lakes in the winter. We went to a restaurant that was a dock on Flathead Lake. The lake is another reason we came up here, it is beautiful. The last day...

Another adventure

Jun 22, 2017 - Kalispell

Thurs., June 22nd – Our time in Kalispell was a “Catch-up”….Bruce’s oil change, the guys haircuts, and lots of shopping at Target, Ross, Costco and Walmart. We also managed to squeeze in strolling the downtowns of Big Fork, Kalispell, and Whitefish, all quaint little places filled with beautiful hanging baskets and potted flowers outside the many gift shops. We finished with a trip up to Whitefish Mt. where Steve, Carla, and Bruce took the long ride up the chair lift to the top of the mountain.

Jun 18, 2017 - Out of the wilderness

We then spent 3 more nights at Holland Lake....3 miles down a gravel/mud road. Boy that was tough in the Motorhome...10 miles per hour and every dish, piece of silverware, counter and cabinet clinking and creaking. It's a beautiful lake but in the rain and grey it didn't photograph well. It was cold enough to add some snow on the peaks surrounding our valley. Swan valley (hwy 83) has a chain of lakes for about 80 miles. Hwy 83 has road resurfacing for 26 miles. Long waits. We finally went in search of sunshine and found it in Kalispell....

Summer 2017

Jul 10, 2016 - Peace and Quiet by the River

Another one night stand, but at a really pretty park rather than a glorified parking lot. Kalispel, MT is a very pretty little town on Flathead Lake which is the largest natural lake in Montana. It is only about 40 miles from Glacier National Park so the mountains in the background are just beautiful. We only spent one night here as we had reservations just outside the park, but we were right on the river which flowed into the lake and out site had a gorgeous view.

Jun 22, 2016 - Going to the Sun Road

Going to the Sun Road is one of the more famous attractions at Glacier National Park. The early engineering marvel had just opened a few days before John and Tracy arrived. It takes the road department quite a while to remove the last of the snow in Logan Pass and at the visitor center. Being that Nancy and I were still staying at the RV park in Kalispell, we had internet connectivity. Thanks to that, we were able to use the weather apps and pick the best day to make the east to west run over the famous road. John and Tracy drove in from...

Jun 19, 2016 - Over to Kalispell, MT

Today we left early, having to go to the city dump before traveling. We decided to take a scenic route today, first north through Bonner's Ferry then south east past Troy and Libby down to the Kalispell Elks Lodge. The scenery was forest & mountain views following along the Yaak River. As we passed through Libby, there were several very large statues of Eagles around town. They claim to be the City of Eagles. On arrival at Kalispell Elks, there were plenty of spaces left. We were concerned because this is tourist season. We settled in and...

Aug 5, 2015 - Summer Crowds and Super Funds

Kalispell, Montana is the largest town near Glacier National Park. It is about 30 miles from Glacier's west gate and with a population of about 20,000, it has all the necessary “big box” stores for the area. We stayed at Spruce Park on the River in Kalispell and found it barely adequate for our needs...but after touring most of the RV parks in the surrounding area, they are all pretty much the same. This is a tourist area that has harsh winters. The RV parks are gravel (barely) sites and they pack you in tight to accommodate the short...

Jul 12, 2015 - Kalispell, Montana (30 minutes from Glacier National Park)

Hello from Kalispell, our second stop in our Montana adventure. After a short 112 mile drive from Missoula to Kalispell last Sunday, we settled into a nice, rural type campground here outside town. Definitely not a ‘resort’ but very comfortable for us and ‘safe’ feeling......which is what we like. Also a farm across the road, with cows and wheat growing so I’m feeling right at home. ha! This park has quite a few permanent residents (pretty common in some parks) a nice pond where the kiddos are having a blast, and a nice playground for them...

Jun 27, 2015 - It's Never This ...

It’s never this hot. It’s never this cold. It’s never this windy. It’s never this rainy. Throughout our travels, we’ve heard the above comments so many times we just roll our eyes and laugh. We are now in Kalispell, Montana and the saying here is “It’s never this hot.” For the next 5 days, temperatures are expected to be in the mid-90s and reach the 100 degree mark on Sunday. These temperatures are 20-25 degrees above normal. Yikes! We thought we left behind the hot weather when we left Walla Walla. The main difference between Walla Walla...

Jun 21, 2015 - Kalispell, MT

Sun, 21 Jun: A nice Summer Solstice drive... We figured we'd have plenty of daylite for today's drive. Summer Solstice is upon us and just shy of the 49th Parallel there is plenty of lite in the day. We awoke of our own accord a bit before six and enjoyed a few extra minutes snogging before getting up. We love these "get up when ready" days. By the time we got everything ready to go, relocate the coach to the dump site, dump the holding tanks and connect the car, and roll wheels it was around half past eight. We weren't in any big hurry,...

2015 Travels

Jun 5, 2015 - Kalispell, MT

June 5, 2015 The first photo is if the back of my rig from Sedlak's RV. On the road from Canada to the good ole' US of A! As were most of the roads in Canada, it was fairly smooth sailing most of the way. The ride to Calgary was just like from Vancouver to Banff. Beautiful! Snow capped mountains, the river alongside, and the ubiquitous, train tracks. About 50 miles into the ride the terrain changed to flat farmland stretching for miles. Still nice, but not the same. It didn't get bad until we got through US Customs. a TIGHT squeeze, that...
