Highline Trail in Glacier Park

Here's a picture I took of the highline trail in Glacier Park.  Sort of having Glacier on my mind lately.  I recently bought a bear bell for my pack and have some pepper spray.  Queenie has a bell also.  Thankfully we haven't had any encounters with bears in Glacier.  Both of us have seen them from the car or a distance a few times, but the last time I saw a bear from the trail was years ago.  That's not to say they aren't around..  A guy just shot and released a bear in the park last weekend.

It's so pretty up there though.  We made lots of noise and there were lots of people on the trail when we did the loop last time.  We won't be as far back in for a while now but bears are always on my mind in Glacier.

Westinghouse roaster oven

I scored this vintage Westinghouse roaster oven at a thrift for $15.  It will match the retro kitchen  in the Gochenour cabin nicely.  It works great!  I almost didn't buy it and I walked away from it once.  But I took a second look and thought,. I gotta have that!  It's just way too cool and the price was right.

The knob lights up red when it's on, and the whole grey pan and rack lift out for cleaning.  There's also a window in the lid to look down and see what's going on inside.  First thing I'm going to do is roast a chicken in it on the 4th of July weekend.  A nice addition to the Gochenour collection!
