Lynn and I returned to the Lake Place on Friday.  It's quite a bit cooler here now than last time.  I appreciate the quiet, as those of you who know me know.

We've taken a few walks so far and driven over to Missoula to snoop around a bit.

There are vestiges of snow on the shady sides of the buildings up here.  It looks like the last storm deposited about 10-12 inches of the pale moisture.

Today, we plan to wash windows.  It was my idea, actually.  We found a formula for streak-free window washing not requiring drying the glass.  We'll report on how well it works.

This AM, when I arose about 6:30, the fog lay peacefully about the bay and on up into the Pintlars. Another sign of the peace up here.  We plan to stay until Tuesday and then return to the other house, in Helena.

I haven't edited the pics yet, but will do so and let you know.  Lots of birds and views of interesting stuff abounds here. Verbage too...

On Sunday morning the bay was covered with fog which extended high up into the towering mountains of the Pintlars.  Only after the sun had risen for some time, did it dissipate.  Quiet again.

After Lynn had been had been up for awhile we tried our new formula for streak-free window washing.  It failed.  Need I say more?  We hand washed a few prominent ones and let it go at that.  

We took a hike over to Rainbow Bay, about three and a quarter miles.  The shores were covered with hopeful fishermen, but none bragged of any success.  A bit of rain started to fall, so Lynn took off ahead of me to avoid getting wet.  It really didn't amount to much after all, but took care of the dust.

Shortly after we arrived back at the house, it really rained hard with Donner and Blitzen, if you know what I mean.  Now, in the evening, the light is perfect.  The water is calm and all is quiet.  Photos are posted at

It's great to come down where you want to be. The montage of fog and mountain is great. Even your description is poetic and peaceful.
