Backroads ~ A Family Reunion

We had a terrific and fun week at Montana's Glacier National Park.    We had a family reunion and we all participated in an active travel vacation through 'Backroads'.  The 'Backroads' staff put up and took down our tents.  They cooked and did the dishes for us.  They were superb guides.  They cheered us on!!  They played games with us and were positive, knowledgeable, personable and energetic all the while.  They really did their best to accommodate us!



We traveled cross country by train to get there.



In the park we toured by boat.



We hiked.



We biked.



The kids went horseback riding.



We participated in skits.



Some went whitewater rafting.


We played games.



We ate


and ate.




We socialized.


We never got our fill of the magestic scenery.












Some slept in tee pees.


We all slept in tents.


We saw moose.


We saw bear.


We saw elk and


...mountain goat.



After our goodbys...we boarded a plane back home and brought back with us priceless memories.  Thank you Craig and Lori for making this trip happen!!
