    We use to publish a monthly newsletter but decided to step up and do a blog instead. Just like our newsletter we will update this "newsletter" about once a month.
    Each month we bring you news from our little town of Coupeville, WA and happenings around the island we live on.
    We hope you enjoy our blog and we'd encourage you to sign up for email notification since it doesn't update all that frequently.

Day 4 – Glacier Park Here We Come

Yesterday we woke to fog and which brought back memories of a previous trip to Glacier Park where we saw nothing above about fifty feet due to fog.

Fortunately it cleared up as we headed west. We’re always amazed with the vastness of Montana and it’s easy to see why they call it “Big Sky Country”.

We drove past Flathead Lake which is always impressive as it’s the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River, 191.5 square miles, wow!

We arrived in Hungry Horse a little early to check into the campground so decided to have lunch at the Elkhorn Grill. We had their Huckleberry Glazed Chicken Burger and fries which were very good.

After lunch we headed to Canyon RV Campground just outside of Hungry Horse. This is the entrance to the camp.

We have a nice little spot that has lots of trees to shade the sun and keep us cooler. It’s an older campground and a little run down but the people here are nice and it will work just fine for a base camp while visiting the surrounding area.

Today we are going to see Hungry Horse Dam and any other sites that we stumble upon. Wednesday and Thursday we plan to see Glacier Park as the weather is supposed to be nicer than today.
