Road trip No. 1

Flush with free time due to unemployment, Lisa and I decided to take advantage of our freedom and visit our friend Jenna in Western Montana. Four hours of beautiful driving from Spokane is the town of Polson, on the southern tip of Flathead Lake. And, wonderfully, an hour and a half north of there is Glacier National Park.

Lisa and I left about noon Tuesday, timed so we could hang with Jenna on her day off Wednesday. That part of the country has breathtaking landscape, though the towns themselves are a little questionable.

So, a day trip to Glacier took up our Wednesday. I won’t talk much about it, so take a look at the slideshow below. But we did go on a three-hour hike up to Avalanche Lake, at the shores of which we found thin ice because it’s been a while since the sun hit there.

We got back to Polson near the end of dusk, enjoying the sunset as we drove along Flathead Lake. That evening, the three of us drank white wine and made caramel apples (well, we melted caramel and dipped apple slices in it).

We decided to head back to Spokane on Thursday so we could start planning the rest of, well, our lives. Which brings me to another post, which I will post somewhat soon. (No promises on how soon, considering my recent blogging diligence.)
