In September we drove the van up to the Mountainview Hideaway, loaded up with boxes but my Dad had also gotten us a generator and a log splitter which we needed to get up there. We were joined by our best friends here in Texas, Randy and Lynette. We were eager to share our home with such special people, near and dear to our hearts. The leaves on the Aspens as well as the needles of the Larch were beginning to turn golden for their annual Autumn ritual which is spectacular to observe!

We drove up to Logan Pass where Dave and Randy took a short jaunt up the Hidden Lake Trail for some overviews of the area.

Naturally, we stopped at "The Huckleberry Patch" on our way back!

Our neighbors had invited all of us to come over for their last cookout for the season and we were more than happy to take them up on their offer and enjoy some tasty elk burgers!

There were nice breakfasts to start our day, both at home and Montana Coffee Traders...

On our way to the Many Glacier area, coming back over Logan Pass, the clouds were making for some really interesting photo ops:

We stopped at the Wild Goose Island turnout, which is a favorite spot for photographs.

We had lunch at the Many Glacier Hotel's Ptarmigan Dining Room before riding the boat across Swiftcurrent Lake.

Besides the gorgeous Aspen trees, we saw bears!

Randy helped Dave assemble the second of the two new rocking chairs we had delivered.

Lynette and I are only 3 days apart and we celebrated turning 55 by going to dinner at The Lodge At Whitefish Lake.

You know you're best friends when you unknowingly get one other the same exact card!!

Wonderful memories made with special friends...
