Wednesday in Hungry Horse, Montana

We made it!! Left home about 7am Wednesday morning with cooler weather temperatures and cooler engine temps. We did unhook the Explorer in Cardwell to go up over the Butte pass not taking any chances until Mike has a chance to clean the radiator.

I like this motorhome traveling--I got up and made us peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as we traveled along--it is an extremely comfortable way to travel.

When we stopped at the Clearwater Junction rest stop for ice cream floats from our own refrigerator, Emmi met a beautiful schnauzer named Fritz. He was his owner's fifth schnauzer.

We arrived at Hungry Horse Reservoir Lost Johnny Campground just a little after 4pm and found the perfect site right on the lake. By this time our clear morning skies had given way to rain.

With the motorhome parked and set up, we jumped back in the Explorer and headed into Coram where our friends Jim, Ellie, Mark and Dortha were camped. Of course Emmi went along, Jim and Ellie have two schnauzers. Emmi was the star attraction getting so many photos taken she felt like a movie star. Our friends also presented her with a rhinestone studded collar and a stuffed duck so Emmi really felt like a star. We enjoyed a delicious fajita dinner with these friends--a wonderful evening. Mr. BoJangles and Jasmine were not impressed with the little rug rat that invaded their motorhome.

It rained during the night and was still raining when we got up on Thursday morning. Michael worked on a few little things that were problems and the rest of the morning we enjoyed our coffee and reading.
Close to lunch time, our friends arrived to check out the lake and our campground and to take more photos of Emmi who put on quiet the show. After visiting for a while
we were all hungry and headed into Hungry Horse for lunch at the Packers Roost Bar and Grill for delicious hamburgers--Dortha and Ellie were good and had soup and salad. After lunch we said our goodbyes, these friends are headed to Cour d' Alene, ID and the Pacific northwest tomorrow. We will see them down the road somewhere we are sure.
