The End of Two Perfect Days

CCT"These past two days have been perfect," El said as we relaxed in the cockpit of Halcyon with a sundowner. We were in the campground at Two Medicine Lakes, as beautiful a campground in the mountain terrane as you could wish. We started yesterday with a bear."

CCT"Then we were able to make the difficult launch into Saint Mary Lake and were rewarded with one of the most amazing mountain spectacles we have yet seen on the boat - a beautifully still day of tranquility and refelections."

CCT"In the afternoon, we had an easy border crossing into Canada and a marvelous cruise through one of Canada's most beautiful natural parks - and the storm slipped by to the south of us, so we had no problem with either wind or rain."

CCT"Then a fine campsite, under clear skies, in Waterton for the night."

CCT"It was an easy crossing back into the US today, and then your marvelous suggestion of heading to Many Glacier Lodge for midday meal - what a memory trip to share from your childhood - and a great meal."

CCT"And here we are, tucked into the bear bushes in a beautiful campground. Sure can't beat these past two days for a perfect 'vacation.' Where to for tomorrow?" Her grin spread across her face.


CCT"Who knows, but for now let's take a stroll down to the lakeshore to see the sunset - maybe there'll be a moose."
