Bike Across America 2010

Whitefish, Mt To Lake McDonald-Glacier National Park

July 1, 2010
39 miles

Most of the group went downtown in the early morning. Ed went back to Glacier Cyclery and bought a "Going to the Sun" jersey. The superstitious side of me made me not want to buy one as I did not know if I will make it tomorrow over the pass.

Later in the morning we rode the back roads out of Whitefish to avoid the traffic. Some of the county roads were peaceful with little traffic. It was a nice morning. Eventually we hooked with Hwy 2 heading east and the traffic picked up.

Early morning in Whitefish....

(Ed. note - Another nice read and more good photos here - Bob)

Bruce & Dana's Northern Tier Bicycle Tour

May 29, 2011 · 1:53 pm

Day 15-West Glacier to Essex+10

38.3 miles-dry day with rare sunshine-temps 40 to 50- moderate headwind this afternoon.
After blueberry pancake breakfast we started east on familiar highway 2. The old railroad lodge at West Glacier was worthy of a picture as were the scenery shots. We followed the middle fork of the Flathead river to Essex.

We learned about Essex from a couple during dinner on Amtrak so we stopped for a visit. The Issac Walton Inn was built in 1939 to house train crews needed to keep the tracks open during the Rocky Mountain winters. Lunch was split pea soup and a roll.

We called ahead to the Snow Slip Inn to inquire about a room so on we went for 10 miles. The road went up Goat Lick Hill which we are told is the steepest part of the climb to Marias pass. We are perhaps 10 miles short of the pass so are ideally positioned for that challenge tomorrow. With snow alongside the building we are very thankful the heat works well.....
