Up through Montana

We arrived in Whitefish, Montana in time to visit the Art Festival in the park there. We didn't want to wait around for 5 hours for the fireworks on the lake, so we drove on and found a place to camp in the forest.
The next morning we found a nice waterfall--Martin Falls.

The forest had many of these trees, which I hadn't seen in Utah. Haven't identified it yet. Thinking it may be some kind of cedar.

There was much "bear moss" on the trees. It is a combination of algae and lichens (or something like that) and will not survive in polluted air.

That night camping and the following morning were the most peaceful of the whole trip. Loved it. We're good at sleeping in the car, huh?
