Day 5 Avalanche Creek Campground, Glacier NP to Columbia Falls RV Park
8/8/14 Friday 39 miles
A is for Avalanche Creek Campsite! I forgot to take a picture before we broke camp and packed up our stuffs. Thanks Kerry! The riding to West Glacier was mostly downhill and most of the traffic was incoming; which was awesome!
This here was some fine riding! After some four-lane highway shoulder riding on Rt. 2, we turned onto dirt roads near Five Lake. There was some gated double and single track involved. Old roads. Confusing, but very entertaining. It all worked out. That’s why it’s called adventure travel!
We stopped here for a smoothie, iced coffee and the interwebs. The staff was friendly and the food was cold and delicious. Most of our time in Glacier was out of cel reception so it was nice to catch up and let everyone know we survived seeing no grizzlies.
Our host at Columbia Falls RV Park leading us to our $25 site with awesome amenities! The showers were great and the bathrooms super roomy. There were free interwebs in the park! And we had just bought a rotisserie chicken and giant salad to share! The only issue was the yellow jackets. They were really into the chicken fat. I killed a few with my fork. That’s survival skills!
We decided to get matching bike tats to celebrate riding the Going to the Sun Road! We did it! Kerry has really only ridden in South Florida and the high point of Key West is 14 feet. Yet she’s quickly learning how to shift and climb and seems to be eating hills for breakfast!
Tomorrow we plan to be camped waterfront! Follow along at:
