July 19-25, 2017
After spending about 5 hours pitched outside a Toyota dealership in Helena, Montana, we finally hit the road to our next destination, Glacier National Park. We arrived at Two Medicine campground, on the east side of the park, around 10 pm and it was still light out - I love the north west, it keeps reminding me of home! We had previously arranged to meet our friends (Uncle) Kyle and Adriane at Two Medicine where they had graciously snagged us a campground spot next to theirs. Kyle and Adriane were at the end of their 6 week cross country tour so it was awesome to not only spend time with them but, to hear about their adventures. It was actually also great to have a catch up with good friends and other people to talk to besides each other! As much as we love each other, we miss our families and our friends so much and being on the road has its challenges - all in a good way.
After we said our goodbyes to awesome friends and came to terms with the fact that we only had each other for company from here on out, we headed to the west side of the park to do some more exploring. Here we spent some more time relaxing, because what else is this lifestyle for!!! We also drove the Going-To-The-Sun Road, which was amazing although pretty scary. I decided to give David a break from driving and offered to drive this road since we did not have the trailer with us, well, never have I been so scared of driving a huge pick up truck up the side of the mountain. I thought driving small, windy roads in Scotland had me well prepared for anything but NO, I was a nervous wreck, so much so that David had to take over and of course made it look like a walk in the park! The next day we biked around the park and spent an evening watching the sunset at Lake McDonald, what an awesome way to end our time at Glacier National Park, another park already on my list for return! Next stop Spokane, Washington.
