Montana

The last day of July I headed to Kalispell, Montana to join my daughter, her boyfriend and his parents for a vacation. I was super excited and looked forward to using my new full frame camera.

My flight was delayed resulting in my missing my connecting flight in Denver so I spent the night there and completed my journey to Kalispell the next morning.

After unpacking, we hiked the Avalanche Trail the afternoon I arrived.

The next day, Tuesday, we hiked Piegan Pass.

Surprisingly after 2 days of hiking only my feet were sore.

Wednesday it was 60 degrees and raining so we changed plans and toured the Conrad Mansion Museum.  Charles E. Conrad and his brother William established a shipping and freighting empire in Fort Benton, Montana Territory that eventually became the most important transportation center in Montana.  When Charles moved to Kalispell he had an impressive 13,000 square foot home built.

Thursday we drove around Flathead Lake admiring all the beauty. Then I headed back home.
