Day 12- Seeley Lake to Glacier NP.

171 miles.

We made the trek down the dirt road and back onto Highway 83. It's a super fun, fast, and smooth road through the forest. The speed limit in Montana is 75 pretty much everywhere, except in towns. It makes for awesome riding.
We stopped in Bigfork for breakfast, gas, and bought some Flathead cherries.
We made it to the park early and found an awesome campsite at Sprague Creek. It's right on the shore of Lake McDonald, so the first thing we did was go for a swim/bath. It is a super deep lake formed by an ancient glacier, it's sand and rock bottomed and the water is super clear.
We then rode The Going to the Sun Road to the top of Logan Pass. It's amazing up there and we hiked up through snow and along glacial lakes. The views were amazing and we saw some mountain goats.
Back at the campground we made dinner and went for another swim. We met our neighbors, Kate and Hannah and we sat around their campfire talking and roasting marshmallows. Today was most excellent.

Hidden Lake, I think.

Bug Report.
The bugs were mellow today, a few on our way to the park. No in the park.
