How I Spent my Summer Vacation
With the lingering drama of the pandemic and most travel out of the question I was not anticipating much fun this summer.
My daughter had other ideas. About to celebrate a milestone birthday, she decided a trip to a lake cabin would be a special treat – and right she was!
My youngest son and I were invited to meet the fam at Flathead Lake in Montana. Hubby had to work and Mom spent a few quality days with my sister in St. George. Tim and I made a pact not to discuss anything political and we had a great drive.
The journey from our northern Utah home took us through Idaho, Falls that is. First stop THE BEES KNEES, a quaint little pub started by 2 sisters who wanted to serve “fancy food.” Oh my goodness. If you are anywhere near Idaho Falls you must make a beeline there.
We started our culinary adventure with a bacon-crusted baked Brie topped with a raspberry coulis, blackberries, strawberries, crushed honey comb, a Balsamic reduction and other delicacies. This would have been perfect all by itself but we persisted and were amply rewarded. Try it! https://www.beeskneespub.com/
I had never visited Yellowstone National Park, so that was our next stop. I am now a permanent fan of the US National Parks, it was an outstanding place; an unforgettable mixture of science and nature.
Next stop Flathead Lake.
The sunset over the lake was amazing every day. There was always something new to admire.
We spent a lot of time in the pristine, clear water.
We hiked at Glacier National Park in Montana, another national treasure.
More cookouts and a celebration of the birthday girl.
There’s nothing like a week at the lake to clear your head and heal your heart. Until next time!
