Day 10 McGregor Lake – Marion Montana

Travel Mileage Today 0
Total Miles 1458
Miles To Go 7863

Our first night here was interrupted at 2:00 AM by the tire pressure alarm sounding. One of the new tires pressure have decreased to 83 PSI. By morning the tire was down to 53 PSI. So it was back to the tire shop to investigate the cause of the leak. It turned out to be the valve extension tube on the inner rear tire. Luckily I had a spare extender that resolved the leak problem; that little problem took up the whole day.

Today we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful lake scenery even through the day is overcast and it just started to rain.

McGregor Lake is 1,504-acre freshwater lake in Kootenai National Forest, just 35 miles west of Kalispell, Montana, in the state's northwest corner. It is one of the deepest lakes around with an average depth of 106 feet and a maximum depth of 220 feet. The lake is spring fed and one of the clearest lakes that I have ever seen.

We will spend another three nights here and then continue our trek north.
