Rainy Days in East Glacier
Day 18 – June 18, 2014
East Glacier – East Glacier – 0 miles (total miles 882)
Weather rainy(pouring) and cold – 30 – 40 degrees
We spent a second day in East Glacier, it just was too cold and rainy to bike. If the temperature was warmer with rain or colder temperature and no rain but with the two together it is just not good to be out on the bicycle. We were concerned about being able to stay warm.
Had a fun day exploring East Glacier, went to the post office, grocery store, Grand Lodge and cleaned and checked over the bicycle to get ready to go tomorrow. Had lunch at the Grand Lodge today because it was raining to hard to walk the 1/2 mile back to the Hostel. I got the Huckleberry Bread Pudding for dessert which was very good – a couple from Harpers Ferry that we were talking to yesterday in the Laundromat said we needed to try it – they were right – delicious!!
The Grand Lodge is beautiful and even with the rainy weather you got a great view of the mountains. It was amazing to see the amount of snow added to the mountains in this storm, they also have some additional roads closed in the park due to the recent storm. The Logan pass is still not open and I am sure the recent storm will push it back even further.
Plans are to head out to Cut Bank (about 48 miles away) or if the weather is good and we are feeling good we will head to Shelby which is another 22 miles down the road. We need to get cruising and make up some miles due to our second day off the bike.
More to come!!
