2013 Western Road Trip Day 15, June 13th

Even though we said that we were sleeping in this morning, we were on the road to Flat Head Lake, MT by 9:30 am.  Because this was just a travel day with no scheduled side trips, we made several impromptu stops.

The first of these stops was  Coere d’Alene, ID. We drove down to the lake and snapped several photos.

Our next stop was a an old mining town named Kellogg, ID. In addition to a couple of old buildings, it offered us an opportunity to photograph some unique Americana.

A little further down I-90 was the town of  Wallace, ID where we took some photos of more Americana and had a chat with a local character.

We left I-90 and headed toward Flat Head Lake. It seemed to take forever but we finally found a lunch place to have a picnic.

We reached our destination, Flathead Lake and drove around the east shore to our destination Marina Kay Resort.

Flathead Lake is 20 or more miles long and is surrounded by mountains

Marina Kay is situated on a creek off of the lake and has beautiful vistas. We checked in around around 4 pm and just relaxed.

Later we had dinner here and lost a few bucks in the “literal” one arm bandits.

Tomorrow, we’re off to Glacier National Park.
