"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

After leaving West Yellowstone on Tuesday morning we made our way North and West.  We found a great little city park in Choteau, Montana.

There was even free entertainment just across the stream.  Small towns are the same everywhere.  Spring evenings are spent at the ball fields.

After Choteau, it was only a short drive to Glacier National Park, and St. Mary campground.

The skies were somewhat overcast, but the temperature was in the high 60’s.  We set up the trailer and the Clam for an extended stay.

That afternoon there was word of a couple of bears just up the road a few miles.  We drove up to see if we could locate them.  No luck, but did take a few pictures of the lake nearby.

Yesterday (Thursday) we thought we would take a drive down to Two Medicine campground.  Once there, and finding out that the snow was still being cleared, we just kept riding and looking.

And, riding we did.  All the way around Glacier NP.  Stopped in West Glacier for lunch, then headed on up to this little place.

We picked up some freshly baked goodies, the decided we hadn’t gone far enough, yet.  Bowman lake was only six more miles up the road.  We were regretting our decision as we made our way over a dusty, potholed road.  But the view was worth it once we arrived.  Take your pick, I like them all.

Once back home, it was time for supper.  Horst, this one’s for you, my friend.
