From Lake Pend Oreille to Flathead Lake (Idaho to Montana)

August 30th ~ Drive from Lake Pend Oreille (Sandpoint, ID) to Flathead Lake (Polson, MT)

One of several rivers we passed over or by

~ This was just a repositioning day. Driving approximately 200 miles from Sandpoint, Idaho to Polson, Montana. 

We did not do any specific sightseeing, but the scenery along our drive was quite nice.

View for our lunch stop along the Clark Fork River

Not a bad spot to pull over for lunch. Sure is convenient having a full kitchen (even if small) in the RV.

Spotted a wildfire that appears to be rather new.

Tim spotted the smoke before I did

Seemed to be growing rapidly

Both beautiful scenery and heart wrenching destruction at the same time

Finally Flathead Lake came into view.

First look at Flathead Lake

Coming next: One of the best, strange museums we have ever visited.

GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful that Tim and I are just so darn comfortable with each other. Long days of driving with nothing in mind other than a destination could be tiring at best. But, we simply celebrate our time together, have rambling conversations, or enjoy quiet moments watching miles of natural beauty pass us by.

  1. I enjoyed looking at the photos even the wildfire scary as it must have been looked amazing.

    I spent some months in this area when I was a campground host at Farragut State Park. And by the way my maiden name is Joseph with roots in Texas. My father was from Dallas, my grandfather from Cleburne and my great-grandfather from Galveston.


    • Pat, I’ve always been curious about being a campground host. I’m thinking it would be quite a bit of work, but meeting people from all over would be interesting. I don’t think my husband has any family from Texas. His roots are mainly in Illinois.

    Wow, Joanne and Tim, so nice to connect. Thank you! I will enjoy your travels with you. Love the Twain quote!


  4. Not every couple is suited to what I call ‘Living in a tin can’. We travel on & off about 6 months of the year. Wandering about in countryside that most city folk would abhor having weird conversations like where a particular Country singer has their face piercings. Heaven to us hell to others. Travel safe.


  5. Great blog! my wife and I are also retired and enjoying our retirement lifestyle. I will look forward to your next post.
