Big Mountain

We stayed in Whitefish two nights, at the very pleasant Hidden Moose Lodge.  It was nice not to have a long drive and to have a little more time to relax.  My idea of relaxing, at least in the morning, was to go up to Big Mountain and try out the zip lines.  Michele was even willing to give it a try.  Unfortunately, I exceed the engineers' size limits by a few pounds and disqualified us. They tried to make me feel better by explaining that this is a common problem for tall guys.  Tall guys who spend two weeks sitting in a car, driving from one road food hot spot to another!

We rode on the alpine slide and then we took the chairlift to the top of the mountain, which was pleasant, but the views were awfully hazy now that the smoke from the big Missoula fire has moved into the valley.

The two alpine slide photos are not mine, but were taken by the resort:  Artie Regan, Mountain Life Photography
