Down on the Farm.....

We spent the weekend in Green Valley with Tim's parents....Randi, Eli and Nick were there too!
On Saturday Tim and I went over to mow at my dad's farm (hence the sweaty hair)..... I'm getting use to the 1948 Allis Chalmers 'C' tractor. It's always good to go back to our roots!

After the beautiful scenery in Canada we headed to Glacier National Park in Montana! Banff was breath taking but Glacier is our favorite!

Lori caught this doe right on the side of the road....Tim and I were in the lead and totally missed her.(we could have reached out and touched her but with all there is to look at we were looking the other way)
Going to the Sun Highway!
By motorcycle.... the best way to see it!

As I took this pic of Lori and Jeff by the Weeping Wall (which was bawling this year)....

....Lori was taking this pic of Tim and I!

Loved the wild flowers!
Indian Paint Brush

Logan's Pass Wildlife!
Who minds a little road construction when you have views like this.........

Nature's Picture Frame!

Leaving Glacier.....the last views of the mountains!

End of the day.....end of the trip.....
just a few miles to go!!

We took a 3050 mile trip to Banff, BC, Canada and Glacier National Park, Montana with our dear friends Jeff and Lori!
What fun to travel with another couple who enjoy the same things we do! Especially that we could skip all the tourist traps. Just keep it simple for all of us!
The first part of our trip was to Canada! Sunday night(3rd night of our trip) in Calgary....time to celebrate Jeff's Birthday!!

Time to sign up for the '** Alive' class??!!! hehe
Monday a stop at Lake Louise in Banff, B.C.!

Canadian Rocky Mountain Majesty!

Spectacular views!!

While in Calgary we learned of a biker campground called Toad Rock near Nelson B.C.!
We weren't prepared for camping but were told they had other accommodations....

We got information and contacted Mary, the owner of Toad Rock! She was right there to great us when we rode up!

So we found out some of the 'other accommodations' were old buses.....

....and vans!!

We opted for the cabins Mary rescued from an old church camp. They had bunks and Tim and my cabin had a sleeper couch which turned out to be one of the most comfortable beds I slept on all week!!

And the main gathering spot was the Pavilion!

Great place to meet other bikers from all over!
We hope to go back to Toad Rock and spend more than one night there!

We really enjoyed Canada, the people and scenery were amazing!
