Yesterday, we went after church, with some friends from church - The Millers, Tad, and the 2 Siblerud girls - to hike to Avalanche Lake in Glacier National Park. It is an easy, but lovely, little hike and great for the kids. The day was perfect and the trail was busy - no concern that we might run into bears; there was WWAYYYY too much activity for that on the trail. Well, and the amount of noise that we all made would have sent any bear within the next 20 miles skidaddling. We didn't need any more bear adventures this week...I"ll post about that soon (aren't you just dying to know?). We packed our coolers and had lunch in the park after the hike. What a day, what a beautiful place. I still cannot believe that we live here!
