We hated leaving Glacier Nat'l Park.  I’d never been there before and it is definitely a place I want to return to.  We have to be in Minnesota by June 20 for my uncle’s 50th anniversary/ family reunion so we made a monumental effort to see all of Glacier in 2 days!  On our 2nd day we drove along Hwy 2 then back into the park at Two Medicine Lake. Wow!  Would love to camp right on the lake forever.  Hopefully the pictures Nels is posting do it some justice.  Took a short hike to Falling Eagle Falls where a Blackfeet Indian Healer made her Vision Quests.  I feel as though I too am on a Vision Quest as I have given up my office/ private practice and my house has been sold, now going through inspections.  What my future holds is unknown at this time but Nels and I are happy traveling across the country in our tiny campervan. 

The idea with a Roadtrek 170 is to spend all of your time outdoors as it is cramped being inside.  But somehow we have managed to bring the rain with us from Nevada and have not had a single day without rain.  I am now mountain acclimated and carry rain gear everywhere.  In between the gusts and downpours the sky changes minute to minute.  I have never been so in love with clouds!  The Big Sky has captured my heart.  We rolled down the mountains into lower mountain ranges including Bear Paws, then onto the plains.  We are still on Hwy 2 which is a two lane long straight line which goes right into the sky.  You can put the car on auto pilot till you hit the teensy weensy towns which I learned the hard way are serious about enforcing the speed limit.  Fortunately I was stopped by a friendly sheriff.  We chatted a while and then he gave me a smile and sent us on our way. Seriously it is hard to go from 70 mph tp 55 to 45 then 30 mph in the course of one minute as you roll through the one cowboy bar town and they know this which is how they collect revenue from speeding tickets.  Well God bless America, we found an RV park with a Laundromat so after one week on the road I now have clean clothes and plan to take a long hot shower as soon as I finish writing this.  It is really fun to hear from everyone so please keep in touch!  Love and Happiness, Randi
