Our month here in Kalispell Montana is nearly up and it seems to have flown by although I am starting to get a bit antsy to get back on the road. It probably hasn’t helped that the last several days have been chilly with intermittent rain showers. I have never liked temperatures in the 30’s and after a few mornings of it, I have had enough!
I have begun to map out our fall and winter plans and thankfully it seems to be coming together. Before talking about them I want to mention today’s photos. These are all photos taken of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park.It is definitely one of the gems of the park. This beautiful natural lake puts its many moods on display depending on the given weather each day. We just love this lake and decided we would share some of its beauty in this blog about our future plans.
We will leave Kalispell on Monday and head over to Libby, Montana for a day or two to take in its sights. From there we will overnight at a casino in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Next we will move down to Couer d’Alene Idaho for a few days followed by a five day stay at a COE park south of Pasco Washington on Lake Umatilla. Then we will wander along the Columbia River until we stop in one of our favorite big cities, Portland Oregon, for a week.
Moving from Portland there are no reservations so we will simply figure out a way to get from there to our next reservation on November 4th for a month-long stay in San Diego at Mission Bay RV Park. After San Diego we head east and will spend a week in Gold Canyon Arizona on December 19th and then a month at Mesa Regal in Mesa Arizona.
After our month at Mesa Regal we are planning something different as we’ll head across the border to Mexico to spend 10 days at Puerto Penasco with friends Steve and Mona Lisa along with a few of their friends. Hopefully we will hear soon about these February reservations so we can begin in earnest to plan around that.
Additionally, in the middle of all this we will fly into Raleigh, North Carolina to attend our daughter Katie’s graduation ceremony. She will have completed her Doctorate in Physical Therapy by then and we don’t want to miss seeing her walk the stage. During those 4-5 days we will be leaving our motorhome at a Freightliner Dealer to have it serviced.
Well those are our fairly solid plans including some locked in reservations mixed with ambiguity, my kind of fall and winter travel…
