The entire Going-to-the-Sun Rd opened on Tuesday. On Thursday we decided to do the entire drive to see the beautiful scenery for ourselves! We started on the West side up to Logan’s Pass which took about 1 1/5hrs, since there was a 30 minute wait due to construction.

It gives you a chance to get out of your car and gaze at your beautiful surroundings, these are photographs of what you get to […]

Here is a photo of a moose that we saw the other day, yesterday no one […]

Don’t worry, the girls will do their own multi-day trip once the sun is here to stay! According to a US Forest Service booklet called ‘The Salmon, a Wild and Scenic River’, “the Salmon River flows undammed for 425 miles, it is the longest free-flowing river in the lower 48 states […]
