Travel Mileage Today 153
Total Miles 1458
Miles To Go 7863

This morning we topped off the propane tank at Bretz RV, $.99 per gallon and departed for Kalispell Montana. Kalispell is only 123 miles and about mid way is Flathead Lake.

Flathead Lake is located in the Flathead Valley of Montana in the shadow of Glacier National Park and Big Mountain ski resort. Two rivers, the Flathead and Swan rivers supply clean fresh water to Flathead Lake year-round. Created by Ice Age glaciers, Flathead Lake is almost thirty miles long and fifteen miles across at it's widest point. Flathead Lake is the largest natural lake in western U.S. with a 160 mile shoreline and water covers nearly two-hundred square miles of Montana. The lake 300 feet deep.

We arrived at Kalispell at 11:30 AM. We have lunch and did some shopping while the tires were installed.

Next it was a short hop to McGregor Lake where we will spend 5 days with fellow Alfa owners Don and Karen.
