Back from our ten day journey


Aug. 12 outside our cabin site in West Yellowstone. Ted is in the center, I'm to his left and our niece, Liza, the one with the hat, happened to be visiting the park at the same time. What a nice surprise it was to meet up with her.

 
Ominous warning signs to what was a very peaceful hike to Avalanche Lake in Glacier National Park on Aug. 16, 2012.  It was a beautiful 4 mile roundtrip hike.  We were told to talk a lot on the trail and clap our hands loudly when coming around a bend in the trail.  Bears don't like to be surprised.  With mountain lions, you're pretty much out of luck. If they want you, they want you, but most stay away from humans.

 Avalanche Lake at the end of the trail.  Well worth the hike.
