As colder weather has made it's presence known in Montana, I recall our summertime travels and remember how stunned I was to find this lake in Northwestern Montana. We will definitely be back to camp and swim, at this unbelievable and secretive lake. I'm tempted not to say it's name in fear that thousands of people will flock there! But you guys are trustworthy fellow travelers... This is Horseshoe Lake in the Thompson Chain of Lakes. See you there next summer! @travelwithreallymontana
Ackley Lake State Park is practically in the very center of beautiful Montana! We found it amongst golden farmland on this pretty day. This park is #58 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
I loved all the red pebbles at beautiful Salmon Lake State Park! Gnocchi and Pork Chop had to investigate the little rocks too. They were happy to get out of the car and cool off their feet! That makes this park #57 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown with our fun friends! And our furry friends! @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
Gorgeous Placid Lake State Park was just perfect on this summer day! I'm amazed that I've never stopped at this lake in all the times I've drivers so close! This one is #56 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
Another cool spot at Finley Point. The water was a fun blue-green shade at this part of the lake, and I SO wanted to just jump in with all my clothes on! Still #55 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
The little marina at Finley Point State Park seems like a small piece of Coeur D'Alene Lake Resort has been plucked from Idaho and dropped into Flathead Lake! What a beautiful view. Park #55 was a fun one to find on this hot day in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown with friends! @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
Oh Flathead Lake! How I love you! Yellow Bay State Park is one of the cute little spots that has stolen our hearts. Located on the eastern shore of Flathead among the lake's famous cherry orchards, this park is on point! It has a cute pebble swim beach, a boat dock, a small campground, a babbling brook, and flushing toilets! It's also #54 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
Wayfarers State Park is a favorite of mine! Whenever we travel over to Flathead Lake, we almost always end up running out onto the dock here for our first wide view of this massive lake! Located on the edge of the adorable town of Bigfork, Montana, this park is a perfect spot to launch a boat, try paddle boarding, or have a picnic. They also have a camping!! And this park is #53 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown with friends! @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
Often when we are out adventuring John has to slow down because I've stopped to admire little beauties like these pretty wildflowers. No matter how small, I love them all!! #exploremontana #exploremore #mtexploremore #montanamoment #wildflowers #wildflower #littleflowers #montanaphotographer #montanaphotography #justbreathe #flowerlove #travelwithreallymontana
Les Mason State Park was a great spot! Located on the east side of Whitefish lake, they also have rentals for stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, and pedal boats. AND we found their beach for dogs! And there was lots of happy canines and people loving the water on this gorgeous day. This is #52 in or #2017stateparkphotothrowdown @mtstateparks @mtstateparks
Right on the edge of beautiful Whitefish, Montana is the Whitefish State Park and it is a beautiful spot, with a great view of Big Mountain! I love that there are great opportunities to rent and use stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, and pedal boats. And this park is #51 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
We had a lovely stop at our 50th State Park that we've explored this year! Can you believe we made it to FIFTY PARKS so far?! Logan State Park on the Middle Thompson Lake is perfect for fishing, swimming, and camping. Pork Chop loved walking in the cool water and Gnocchi had to investigate the crawfish trap full of squirmy little crawdads. This park makes #50 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
Lone Pine State Park has some amazing views of the Flathead Valley! You can see Big Mountain, Glacier National Park, Jewel Basin, and even to Flathead Lake if it's a clear enough day. After taking in the views, I felt the need to jump for joy beside what I decided is the "Lone Pine" the park is named after. And this is #49 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
That little island past me in Flathead lake is called Goose Island. I love that in the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, this little island seems to float steadily and is not overwhelmed by the lake's vastness. There are times when I feel so tiny and insignificant in this overwhelmingly huge world. But I also know I was made with a purpose, a uniqueness that no other person on this globe has, and I know I am deeply loved by the creator of this enormous world. 🌎 @travelwithreallymontana
West Shore State Park on Flathead Lake was so pretty! I love sweet Montana evening skies like this! This spot looked perfect for a summer or fall weekend. This is also #48 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks #bigskypic
This was such an absolutely gorgeous evening at Lake Mary Ronan State Park! Interestingly enough, it was 15 degrees cooler at this little lake that it was at Flathead Lake! And it is only 7 miles west of Flathead. This is a fishing and camping haven! And it's #47 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown with our friends. @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
I love this bay at Big Arm State Park! Every time we've visited here it is late afternoon or evening, and the water of Flathead Lake looks so beautiful!! Still #46 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown @travelwithreallymontana @mtstateparks
Big Arm State Park. Need I say more? Just kidding, but this beautiful bay on the western shore of Flathead Lake is awesome, It's also #46 in our #2017stateparkphotothrowdown
