For the morning we had the best lazy time of the entire trip. We just stayed in our PJ's and bummed around all morning. I did about a day and a half of blogging. This was needed since I was way behind. It takes so long to upload the pictures and I have so many I want to put on. I hope to catch-up today and start loading some videos. I was not feeling so great this morning so I did sleep until around 9:00. Pooh did a load of clothes and started to make a list of food items we had in the RV for the Canadian customs tomorrow. While uploading pics I made pasta with most of our onions - we cannot take any into Canada - mushrooms, and pepperoni.  I cooked it for several hours to give it a better taste. Poor Pooh almost went nuts just before it was done since she was so hungry. After lunch we went on our light excursion to East Glacier. For the second time on this trip Pooh was going to drive. If you remember, the last time she drove she ran over a big stump. This time she had to go over several mountain ranges.    We stopped off in town to check out a souvenir shop.  I bought a couple of small things but I have my eye on a tee shirt, though it is very expensive. Pooh continued driving for several miles until it got a little dicey with twists and turns and no guard rails to protect you against a 2,000 foot drop off the face of the mountain. So we pulled over and I took over the driving.  By the time I took over driving I was more than OK. To me, the mountain roads were a lot of fun. Our destination was the Two Medicine area of the park. The main crazy mountain road was called "Looking Glass Road" which is the same name as a cool episode of Lost - yes I know I missed the season finale. At Two Medicine road, we took it to the end where there was a nice little log cabin store that was built over 75 years ago. Pooh got a cool long sleeve shirt, which she put right one since she thought it was cold outside. We then drove to the trailhead for Appistoki Falls. It was a .6 mile uphill stroll. The falls was just average for this part of the country (way above average if you compare it to Georgia falls). The cool part was that much of the creek below would go under the snow that still covered the area. After these falls we checked out Running Eagle Falls which had a short flat trail. The cool part about these falls is that there was another falls hiding just behind the main one. After this, we drove back over the crazy mountain roads back to the RV where I tried to fix the bike racks on top of the truck (the first two days of hard winds had made the bikes tilt). For the rest of the late evening we called a few people (since this is the last day in the US for a few weeks) and attempted to catch up with the blogging.
