I, Zeb the Duck, and my fellow Colorado Traveling Ducks, Soapy Smith Duck, and Eider Duck, loved our road trip. We loved visiting Alaska. We appreciated the beauty and friendly people in Canada. But it is always good to get back home. While not near Colorado yet, we entered the United States and are now in the state of Montana.
Entering Montana just east of Glacier National Park, we are in the Blackfeet Nation.
Such a beautiful area. This was late May so the snow covered mountains greeted us. We appreciated these metal sculptures.
This, Chief Mountain, is 9080 feet ( 2768 meters) above sea level.
While we were admiring Chief Mountain, a Montana State Patrol car pulled over to talk to us. Yes, mom was a little nervous. Why do humans get nervous when police cars stop to talk to them? He was so nice. He just wanted to tell us to take the first right turn ahead and we would see great scenery and better views of Chief Mountain. We took the advice of the officer. He was right. This is Chief Mountain.
Continuing, we soon entered Glacier National Park.
Driving on the road, the mountains were beautiful with a sunbeam shining through the clouds and trees and steam from the road rising to meet us.
Isn’t the world a beautiful place? Driving and admiring the mountains, we entered Waterton Glacier International Peace Park. Glacier National Park is in the USA and Waterton National Park is in Canada.
Our countries have good relations so the two parks are the International Peace Park. These snowy mountains fascinate us.
This is late May and the weather is getting warmer. As the mountain snow melts, we begin to see small streams and small rapids.
Now we have arrived at another customs station.
We do not want to return to Canada tonight, so we turn around and admire more scenery.
Chief Mountain is a great backdrop for this lake. But we also encountered these horses grazing.
This gray horse is grazing close to the road.
He seems more interested in the grass than he is in us. Hey humans, it is getting late and we have not seen any motels that are open. Many will open this weekend. Monday is Memorial Day, the official beginning of summer traveling season. Driving further we can’t resist one more photo of the Rocky Mountains.
Ok, now to get serious and look for a motel. We spend the night in Browning, Montana. Next time we will show you more of Montana, during the day.
