July 4th…..Happy 4th of July

We moved the coach again to an overflow area and now actually have the best spot in the park.  We are now dry camping without any hookups.

We went on a boat ride in Mary Lake early this morning and met the Chief of the Black Feet Indians for this region. He was an Army vet and The Chief (Chairman) and Doug struck up a conversation at a bridge we were hiking on.  At his invitation, we went to his house in the afternoon and met several of this 18 siblings. The family has a lovely summer home on the banks of the St. Mary river just north of where we have been staying. He is a very interesting man working hard with his Tribal Council to address the many challenges faced be the Native American Nations. He and Doug talked about healthcare, land rights, old treaties, and even the Washington Redskins name controversy. We made another new friend!

  1. Hello travelers,
    Don’t know how I missed all of these great pictures and stories until now, but have had a wonderful time looking and reading, and still have more to enjoy. You both look so happy and relaxed that it makes my heart sing. Miss seeing you but LOVE the fun and adventures you are so sweet to share.

    1. Thanks for following. We have been without cell service and without wifi. WE HAVE BEEN OFF the GRID and survived! It does explain this late response. We are fine and now have wifi communications.
      Doug
