In school Friday true to form we spent some time doing little projects for Br. Dale. Things like: cleaning up rooms, helping prep snack, taking out trash and the such. The boys also continued to serve as readers for the last two NWEA Map tests. The DLSBS students had started forming a bond as is the case and were lamenting the boys leaving. After a good day of work the CBC boys said their goodbyes and we headed back to Glacier Park for a 3rd visit.
This time we journeyed north to the Many Glacier area. This area is usually a good place to see wildlife, but is also very scenic area nestled into a mountain valley. On our way in we ran into a heard of Big Horned Sheep that were blocking the roadway. We needed some assistance from the ranger to get through. While near the Many Glacier Hotel we enjoyed Swiftcurrent Lake and the nearby falls.
When we were leaving a couple helped us spot some Mountain goats way up on the hillside. The main highlight though was seeing a young Male Moose on our way out. This is a pretty rare sighting so close to the road.
After Many Glacier we headed south to Two Medicine Grill for dinner. In my five previous visits I had never seen it so crowded. The boys enjoyed Huckleberry shakes, Buffalo Burgers and a trip to the trading post.
We also witnessed a high speed chase involving 5 police cars right through East Glacier.
Upon arriving back at the bunkhouse it was packing time and the boys worked hard to clean th bunkhouse and pack their gear. We departed the Mission at about 2:30 am and arrived safely in Great Falls for our 6:00 am flight.
Next stop St. Louis (with a detour to Minneapolis) See you soon.
