Huge wind turbines dot the hillsides

Glacier Meadow RV Park, near East Glacier, MT.

We pulled out of White Sulphur Springs and headed north and northwest to Great Falls and on to Glacier Meadow RV Park, just south of Glacier National Park. In Great Falls we crossed the Missouri river and it was out of its banks and muddy (of course).

I always thought of Montana as prairie land, sand and sagebrush. As we headed north, we drove through lush farm land. Lots of hay, some grain and a little corn. I was surprised. We also passed through one place where there were dozens of wind turbines, I mean huge jobbies! As through Wyoming, there were a lot of antelope grazing on the prairies and hay fields.

As we neared Glacier RV Park on Highway 2, we crossed the continental divide at Marias Pass, elevation 5220 ft. The highway runs through a beautiful valley with the busy railroad tracks that the Amtrak uses. The weather, as it has been for the last week, is cool and rainy. All the creeks and rivers in the area are running full to overflowing. We will be here for several days and hope that we will get a couple of nice days to enjoy the park.

Come along with us as we explore one of the most beautiful areas of our great country.
