Waterton Glacier, Canada

 We made it to Waterton Glacier ...Beautiful !!

Here I am in front of the Price of Wales Hotel in Waterton.

  June 15, 2015 .. We left USA Glacier.. headed for the Canadian Border. We arrived at the Border and answered all questions correctly, he left us through. We continued along the roads following signs to Waterton. We arrived at the Visitor's center and gathered all the info about the area. We found the park downtown and signed in for full hookups..$38.00 Canadian. We used the credit card and found out it was only $31.00 US Funds.    We set up quickly and went for a drive around the area  We stopped at the Prince of Wales Hotel to walk through the lobby and check out the grounds. We will see more tomorrow. We are having a hard time downloading the blog so we will catch up when we can.
  God Bless Airstreamhobo and Mom

Glacier National Park, MT. June 14th,2015

 What a sight!! Snow on the Mountains and it's 50* out...Brr
 We made it ...
The rivers and lakes are Beautiful ..

 June 14,2015   We drove about 100 miles today and arrived at Glacier Park. The campground is open at St. Marys, very few RV's are here. Too early in the season I guess. Only $11.50/nite with no hookups. Bad News the road is closed 1/2 mile north of the camp so we cannot drive on the Road to the Sun till June 19th. We will be gone by then. But we do drive up to Many Gacier for the day to see the old Hotel ...More later ... God Bless ...AirstreamHobo & Mom

Driving West on a lonely Road

 Stopped for gas and saw this school for Cowboys & Cowgirls....
See... Just a long road ..set the cruise and just steer ...

 June 13th,2015 we drive for 325 miles to Valier,MT. and find a city park for only $20/nite with electric. Again this park is on a lake and people love to fish and boat.   More Later ... God Bless AirstreamHobo & Mom

Fort Peck , MT. Army Corp of Engineers

 Beautiful nature walk around the campground
 Wide Spacious sites..only $10/nite with electric
Fort Peck Dam & Lake Park

  June 6, 2015 ... We leave Roosevelt NP and head north thru North Dakota to Rt 2 west into Montana covering 180 miles today. We passed alot of Gas Fields along the way. We saw lots of camper camps set up for the workers that are here. Big trucks hauling everything you can think of. Lots of new highway construction too.
    We find an Army Corp of Engineers park called Fort Peck Dam & Lake, one of the Largest earthen dams ever made. The campsites are very spacious and most campers have boats with them. We even saw fifth wheels towing the boats behind them ....very long rig ? Cost was $10/nite we got the last space since it is Friday. Everyone boats and fishes around here.
    We drive up to the breast of the dam and see the Big Lake created by the Dam. Tomorrow we  go into the Museum/ Nature Building for the history of the Dam.
    We don't have a strong enough WiFi to down load pictures yet. But we will later I hope. God Bless...AirstreamHobo & Mom

June 11, 2015, We leave the Playgound Campground...no more episodes..Whew .  We continue north on Rt 85. We stop at this little store in the middle of nowhere. It is a one person operation. There was a campgound in the rear filled with campers and horse trailers. We talked to the people inside that were on a Trail Ride for Organ Transplants as a public awareness. Riding 20 miles each day.
   Mom and I ordered a BLT sandwich with coffee and ice tea. I also put some gas in the truck buying $30.00 worth. This was the highest fuel so far $3.06/gal. Most of the time we have paying about $2.69/gal.
    We continue North on Rt 85 into North Dakota... We stop at Roosevelt National Park at the north unit.. Cost is $7.00/nite .. no Hookups.
We are a short distance from the river, walking about 50 feet to the river. What a view !!!
 This place reminded me of the Badlands...Beautiful Scenery
These rocks overshadow the Airstream ....
