We drove two days and stayed overnight in Great Falls. Hilariously, we chose the Extended Stay hotel thinking we could make dinner and not have to worry about trying to survive on “dew of a single ginko leaf and the energy of the universe”. We did not pay enough attention to the kitchenette and presumed there was a small oven. Nope. We made frozen pizza in a pan, MacGuyver-Style!
On Friday, we drove a few hours and was able to set up camp at Saint Mary’s Campground. Then we headed out for some hiking. We planned to hike only a few miles, but it felt soooooo good that we ended up hiking over 7 miles. On the trail we saw a white-tailed deer, mama and baby moose, and reports of a momma Grizzly bear with two cubs. We didn’t take a closer look.
