Kalispell, MT

Friday night we went over to the Huckleberry Festival in Whitefish. It was a small music and art festival.  I bought glass fingernail files – very interesting concept and some cards.  If your birthday is coming up, expect a card from the Huckleberry Art Festival. 
We walked through the craft fair in 95 degree weather. We came up here to get out of the heat !! We later heard on the news that it was 104 in Ogden. Good grief, we are all burning up.

Saturday we toured the Kalispell area.  “Kalispell is about an hour’s drive from the Canadian border and a half-hour from the rugged grandeur of Glacier National Park.  Fifteen minutes south is Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi.  The area’s economy is diverse, entrepreneur-oriented and reflects the region’s growth.  At more than 5,0000 square miles, Flathead County’s 90,000 rsidents have plenty of elbow room.  More than 80 percent of the county’s three million acres is protected by national parks, federal and state forests and private timber reserves.”

Later we drove up to Big Mountain ski resort.  We took the scenic lift up to the top.  What a spectacular view !  The highest elevation is 6,817 feet.  That’s amazing to me.  Snowbird is around 10,000 feet.

Seems like we are on top of the world

Monday we are heading to Banff, Canada.
