We left Lake Pend Orielle today and headed towards Montana. Shortly after crossing the border from Idaho into Montana and just before we reached Libby, we stopped at Kootenai Falls. We took a short hike to the falls and another short hike to a suspension bridge over the Kootenai River. On the way to the falls there is an elevated bridge over the railroad tracks and the stairs were expanded metal with anti-slip cleats. The dogs did not like going on these stairs and Nancy didn’t like the fact that you could see below the stairs as you climbed. The falls were beautiful and worth braving the stairs.
When we got to the suspension bridge Rex and Camille were the only ones brave enough to walk over it. Nancy and Cody stayed behind and watched.
We stopped in Kalispell and got some much needed groceries and supplies. We drove towards Glacier National Park and stopped at Mountain Meadow RV Park outside of Hungry Horse, MT. We are going to spend a couple of days looking around Glacier National Park. It has been over 15 years since we have been in this part of Montana and we really loved Glacier National Park.
