"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Lost Johnny Point CG

Nope, I don’t know who Johnny was, or how he got lost, but he managed to have a really nice campground named after himself.  We pulled into it on Tuesday morning and again got lucky.  Snagging the premier site with a great view of the Hungry Horse Reservoir.

We had to wait a couple of hours before moving in though. The host asked if we minded waiting as the site had been promised to a group for a picnic.  When she explained who was using it for their noon meal, we gladly agreed to wait.

First Descents was doing one of their outdoor adventure experiences for Cancer patients and survivors.  This is a program which allows participants to experience the outdoors free of charge.  What an awesome thing for someone to do.  Check them out on the web at http://firstdescents.org/.

As we watched they were just going through the safety rules, but it wasn’t long before they had them in the lake.

After lunch, and before they departed for the day, they were all doing Eskimo rolls and other fancy kayak moves.

Speaking of the lake, it is beautiful.  Surrounded by green forest all around.

Sally especially likes it as there are lots of sticks everywhere along the shore.

there’s nothing like a good stick to chew, in her opinion.

A beautiful place to spend a few days loafing; and if you look closely, you can see who has the recliner.
