While in Kalispell, we went up to the Whitefish Mountain Resort. It's a ski resort in the winter, but in the summer they have all kinds of activities. Eight WINs went ziplining. I thought I should stay back and be the official photographer. (Actually, I have been ziplining before - you can see the video of it here.)
Here's Karen and Nancy on the practice line.
Instead of doing the zipline, I went on the alpine slide.
I managed to take a video of most of it.
Whitefish is on the Burlington Northern train route and has a lovely station.
We made one more trip to Glacier, this time to see the Lake McDonald area. A lot of the national parks have really unique, historic lodges, and this was no exception.
The lodge is 100 years old, but has been renovated. The lobby is 3 stories high and decorated with hanging lanterns.
They even have mountain goats here too!
And guess what else they have on Lake McDonald - a boat ride! Sign me up!
In case you aren't counting, this is my 4th park boat ride... Or maybe the 5th, since the Many Glacier trip involves 2 boats.
And then on a totally unrelated subject, we saw this sign at Lone Pine State Park, outside of town. I just thought it was cute...
