Last week we got a lot of work done, which meant a little bit less sightseeing than usual. It had to happen sometime, right?
We did manage to make it to Seattle for just a few hours (most of them spent sitting in traffic for a Seahawks game that we didn't know was going on). We checked out the Space Needle, then went to dinner with an old friend of Mike's.
On Friday, we started booking it towards Glacier National Park. We drove for two days, but managed to stop at a few overlooks along the way. The photo above was taken at North Cascades National Park - definitely something we want to return to.
Our current campsite is in the Flathead National Forest outside Glacier National Park. It has some incredible views, but also huge swaths of burned trees. It turns out that an unattended campfire in this area spread to a huge blaze that burned 10% of the national park in 2003. Be sure to put out those campfires, folks!
Our current site is wide open, meaning that we're getting some excellent solar power during the day.
For the next two weeks we'll be exploring Glacier National Park. We just barely scratched the surface this morning with a trip to the Apgar visitor center and a trip to Lake McDonald.
