Day 17 Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Kennewick, Washington to West Glacier, Montana
Miles Traveled Today: 449.7
Total Miles: 5046.9

Obviously, if you look at the mileage, today was another long day on the road, trying to lay some miles down. We left Kenewick about 8:00 and headed up 395 to Spokane, where along the way, DeAnn's headlight failed. We stopped, bought a new one, replaced it, continued on to the other side of Spokane, and after stopping at Harley and Victory, Jeff decided to do the 500 mile oil change on the Victory himself. With that finished a little after noon, we headed over to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and up 95/2 to Bonner's Ferry. After a late lunch/early dinner, we proceeded on Highway 2, the same highway that runs all the way to Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, all the way to Kalispell and finally to West Glacier. Some great views along the way.

Along the way a few photos were taken, but at 70 it is tough to do. The last two are at the campsite, where we are waiting to explore what many call heaven on earth-Glacier National Park. Rumor has it that the Going to the Sun Road will finally open tomorrow. We hope so. It was to be one of the highlights of the trip.
