Trekkers at Aspen Grove Campground with Bonnie Rusk, Flathead National Forest

Aspen Grove Campgrounds

Today was a day to move camp from the KOA West Glacier to Aspen Grove. Aspen Grove is a national forest, whereas Glacier is a national park. The differences are vast, probably the most notable is that mining, grazing, and tree cutting can be done in a national forest. After the move, we spent the day relaxing in the sun. I set up a hammock to sleep in tonight, which will be a change from my regular tent. Hopefully the temperature won’t drop too much tonight.

After dinner we lit a campfire and discussed pertinent public land issues, which was very interesting. Dave Mensing, the organizer of this entire trek, was present and taught us a lot. Finally we sat in a clearing and star gazed. The Perseus comet is closing in to the earth tonight, and we saw many shooting stars. What a relaxing day.
