Another Day Trip

We decided to go down to the Huckleberry Patch in Coram last night and have a piece of pie.  Ohhhh,
I cannot begin to description the scrumptiousness of it.  It is a little piece of heaven.
This morning we got up late, had breakfast and headed to the east side of Glacier National Park to see how far we could get up the Going To The Sun Road in the other direction.  It isn't very far.  There is a lot of construction going on as the road looks to be taking a major beating from all the traffic that is on it daily.  After talking to one of the flaggers at the construction site it sounds like it maybe a couple of years before all the work is done and only if nothing more happens.  We spent the day working our way up as far as we could and enjoyed the overwhelming beauty of nature.  In fact, I would venture to say that what we saw would be very hard to duplicate with a camera but here is an attempt with some of the 335 pictures I took today.

The vastness of it all just can't be seen in the pictures.

As we drove up Highway 2 towards the east entrance we encountered an Elk cow alongside shoulder looking like she wanted to cross the highway.  We slowed down and Honey caught a glimpse and got really silly watching her as we passed.  For awhile Honey would look back to see if the Elk was still there or look forward to see if there was more.  Later in the day we encountered open range cattle on the road and she did the same thing.  This time she nearly climbed out the window on the passenger side in what appeared to be play because her tail was wagging violently.

We have had a great trip with Zach.  I don't think he was all that interested in the east side of Glacier Park until we got there and the he, like me, saw the vastness of the scenery that surrounded us.  I hope he has had a good trip.  He has been very helpful explaining all kinds of things.  He even got out and picked up some garnet to explain to us how it is made as we waited in the construction zone.  Pretty damned cool.

Hope all is well.  Thanks for stopping by.
