Summary

Drove 670 miles in 11 hours and 45 minutes.

Highlights

After our tent was up, we drove back towards St Mary Falls above ...

I really want to see these bears...but from a safe distance and in the right circumstance. We turned around and took the Ptarmigan Falls Trail instead. A great choice. Hiking up to ...

... trains went past the hotel while we were eating dinner. Also, our hotel room faces the tracks.

Mary's Version:

US 2 has really been a beautiful drive. Well maintained, even to the point that they were widening it, actually making the road go uphill, where it hadn't done so previously. I should have taken a picture of it, it's hard to describe in writing.

We were glad to be at the hotel. Pictures of it and the surrounding area to come ...
