A Rainy Day in Glacier

Not being the type to let a little rain get us down it was time for us to figure out a plan B for the day.

So...  we decided to take a little trip up the Murren Tram.

Glacier National Park has many Glacier Carved Lakes.   Here is the view of Lake MacDonald.
Unfortunately the rain is obscuring the mountain tops or you would see the snow capped peaks.



There is a great tram that you can take up the mountains to a remote village on the hillside.

This is the base of the tram looking up


Riding up the tram


The great town on the side of the mountain.



Kate did a bunch of shopping in the little shops


We rode the tram back down and now are back at the camper planning the nights festivities.
Looks like it's  going to be "Movie Night"

Tomorrow we move over to the East side of Glacier but the weather forecast for this whole area looks like rain for several more days...  Keep those fingers crossed.

Also

We have several "regulars" who post comments or send us emails just about every day, but a lot of you are kind of silent out there.   We'd love to hear from you.  (hint hint)
