A full day of doing nothing. It was nice.
We looked at some gear in Kalispell, grabbed a coffee at a local shop, and then picnicked on Flathead Lake and simply laid around in the sunshine. We did accomplish something today. We started planning next year.
Logan Pass is supposed to open tomorrow and I am thrilled! The location is at the top of Glacier National Park and two hikes I’d planned a year ago are now back in action; Hidden Lake, and the Highline Trail. This is the perfect way to end the trip; a hike into alpine country to overlook a beautiful lake known for its grizzly population, and a hike that is considered one of the most beautiful in the entire country.
Today also brought to the forefront that the end is neigh. Work e-mails for my wife and I have already started and the real world is trying to intrude on our vacation.
