Written by btwood2 on 12 Oct, 2007

Last Chance Gulch is where it all began, the heart of old Helena. For it was here that four guys known locally as the Four Georgians, though there's some speculation that there may have been more than four, and that not all of them…Read More

Reeder's Alley

Written by btwood2 on 08 Oct, 2007

We spent the better part of an afternoon nosing around historic Reeder's Alley, at the south end of Last Chance Gulch. At first glance, it doesn't look like much. A conglomeration of mismatched buildings - some log cabins, some wooden, and quite a few…Read More

The Falls of Great Falls

Written by btwood2 on 18 Jun, 2007

It was the waterfalls that took Meriwether Lewis’s breath away in the summer of 1805. "I saw the spray arise above the plain like a column of smoke… It soon began to make a roaring too tremendous to be mistaken for any cause other than…Read More

Day in East Glacier Park, the Town

Written by btwood2 on 20 Feb, 2007

We probably wouldn’t have returned to the town of East Glacier Park if it hadn’t been for forgetting to pick up our mail as we were driving through on our way up. Since we’re full time RVers, we notify our mail delivery service whenever we…Read More

Going-to-the-Sun-Road – West Glacier to Logan Pass

Written by btwood2 on 28 Jan, 2007

The 52-mile long Going-to-the-Sun Road bisecting Glacier Park is rightfully famous. Brainchild of park superintendent William Logan, serious construction on this road between west and east Glacier began in 1921.

Polebridge

Written by btwood2 on 28 Jan, 2007

Just getting to Polebridge is an adventure. There are two ways to get there from West Glacier: the Outside North Fork Road, or the Inside North Fork Road. They roughly parallel one another, on either side of the North Fork of the Flathead River, which…Read More

Glacier National Park - Our Thoughts

Written by creekland on 21 Oct, 2006

There are mountains, and then there are mountains. While all of them have their own beauty and character and should be seen, those in Glacier are simply awe-inspiring. To date, we haven't seen any that are like them (though, admittedly, we still have…Read More

We stayed at the Meadow Lake Resort–NeNastako Village in Columbia Falls, Montana from December 28, 2004 to January 2, 2005. We lucked into getting this resort over the Christmas holidays, by way of booking at the last minute and booking by points per night, not…Read More
