Whitefish ski resort

Yesterday, Saturday, we packed some lunches and headed north about 30 miles to Whitefish Ski Resort.  It's alot like Highlands' of the South.  Very swanky ski resort.  But, in the summer you can ride the ski lift to the top and hike all over.  It is breathtaking.  You can see the Canadian Rockies on one side, Glacier National Park on one side, and the Flathead Valley (where we are).  We ate lunch at the top and just wandered around.  We had big plans to do the "wildflower hike" which is a 3 mile hike.  But the boys were already tired and the first 1/2 mile was straight down hill, so we thought about it and decided that the 1/2 mile straight up hill was going to be ulgy at the end of the day.  So we just hung out and enjoyed the views.
There was a lady there with a big newfoundland lab and Peter saw it and freaked out yelling, "get that gorilla face dog away from me!" it was pretty funny.
