US93: NW Montana "Reveals"

A short drive on US93 today -- only 130 miles from Missoula to Whitefish, MT -- seemed like a series of scenic "reveals." First, about a half-hour northwest of Missoula, we were treated to the sight of lightly snow-dusted foothills. The sky was clear and the road was wet but otherwise excellent.

A half-hour further north, we got our first glimpse of majestic, snow-capped mountains ahead of us.

A half-hour after that, we topped a rise and saw beautiful Flathead Lake spread out before us.

Falthead Lake was worth a pit-stop to try and capture the view. The sky was pretty overcast and the lighting was flat, but you can probably tell it's a beautiful place.

Happy made the most of her time by reminding herself what snow is, romping around like a crazy dog and making a pit-stop of her own. Montana is already on the map of states she's peed in, but it never hurts to give it another go!

A half-hour later we approached Whitefish, MT, where we are in position to make a 60-mile run to the border tomorrow and cap off our US93 expedition... Stay tuned!
