For our family vacation this year we decided on a Rocky Mountain road trip. We left our Springville home--with its own impressive Rocky Mountain backdrop-- at 6:35 AM. We had a long day ahead of us having to collapse our plans for the first two days into one so that Joel could go to soccer tryouts on Friday night.
Marie's great and great-great Tueller grandfathers were Swiss immigrants who did the brick work on the beautiful Paris Idaho LDS Tabernacle.
Once upon a time I nearly sumitted Mt Teewinot with Bill, Bob, and Tom, but then a storm rolled in and we headed down. Bill taught me how to self arrest while climbing up and down the center snow field. Climbing down, the snow gave way and I started sliding but this rookie was able to roll over and dig in my ice pick and "self arrest" into a grateful stop.
Spent the night in Bozeman
In Choteau Montana at the only gas station, my concerted efforts to wash a lot of bugs off my windshield caused me to forgot to remove the gas nozzle from my car before pulling out. It is a set $80 fee to have some one come and fix it.
We stayed the night in Browning at Glacier Peaks Hotel and Casino. Browning is the center of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. A photo in the lobby of our Blackfeet tribe owned hotel shows Blackfeet enjoying Glacier--part of their ancestral lands.
