~Flathead Lake, Montana~

The gorgeous state of Montana!

A lot has happened since I posted last; hopefully I will catch up and post a few photos of the places we have been since leaving Nehalem Bay State Park.

When we left Nehalem Bay State Park we drove to Astoria, Oregon. We stayed at Fort Stevens State Park for four nights. While there we enjoyed the historical aspects of this city, the beautiful, hiking trails in Fort Stevens and a few brews!

Leaving Astoria, we left the cool breezes of the Oregon Coast behind. We stayed a few nights in Coeur d”Alene, Idaho and fell in love with this beautiful city. While there we celebrated our 39 wedding anniversary!

We have spent the past three nights in Polson, Montana and have enjoyed the towns of Polson and Lake Side, Flathead Lake, the Mission Mountain Range and the numerous wildlife refuges in the area. It has been hazy here, because of forest fires in the surrounding states.

    1. Hi Judy, we saw several species of birds: Lazuli Buntings, Magpies, Morning Doves, Eastern Kingbird (lots of them), Cedar Waxwings, Northern Harrier, Rough-legged Hawk, Barn Swallows, Red-winged Blackbirds, Trumpeter Swans. It was a fun drive!

  1. Wow! Having driven home last Sept through MT, I would gladly return for a vacation to see this part of MT you captured. Beautiful, and peaceful!
    Hugs to you and =<3 on your continuing journey.

    1. Anne Marie, I know you would have loved seeing this area! Montana is beautiful and the people are friendly! Idaho is the same, beautiful with friendly people!
