As you read in the last post we arrived Friday afternoon and as we were enjoying our evening patio time, it started to rain, so put out the awning as much as the tree would let us and we sat under the slide-out to keep out of the rain and still enjoyed a beautiful evening outside.
We drove up the Going to the Sun Road, but it was so overcast and raining that we didn't stop anywhere to take any more pictures, you really couldn't see any of the mountains. We just drove around the whole loop back to Columbia Falls, where it was a bit warmer and not raining. We did drive south a bit and found a winery where we did some tasting and purchased some wine. Then another winery was about 20 miles south of that and we purchased a couple wines there after tasting them. That was about our day, got back to the RV and went for a walk and relaxed for the evening.
Today the weather was better - at least no rain, but still overcast and real hazy. I think some of the haze must be coming from the wild fire that was in the park. We saw a portion of that on our drive yesterday and it is just devastating what fire does to the beautiful forests.
Finally stopped and took pictures. Here is a couple of pics of the waterfall across the valley originating from the glacier right above it (the white in the picture right above is the glacier).
At the summit, it was cloudy and all fogged in, so did not get to see any views from that viewpoint. The valley floor was at about 3500 elevation and we felt like we climbed much more than the 6646 ft..
But the temp sure indicated we were up high, it was a cold 48.9 wet degrees.
This is a pano shot looking at the valley were we came from and the river flowing through.
We head out tomorrow bright and early for a 500+ mile drive west. Will keep everyone updated on our adventures.
