Four-wheelers and Fun in the Sun!

This past weekend we traveled down to Helena to visit my dad and step-mom. Saturday we played around on the ATV-my dad's new toy, and Sunday we went boating on Holter Lake through the Gates of the Mountains. If you have never taken the 45 minute drive from Great Falls to experience this natural beauty, than you have missed out! They have a tour boat that is a very reasonable price (if you don't have a father that lives in Helena and will give you a personal tour!) and also goes into detail about various rock formations, indian paintings, and a tribute to the smoke jumpers of the fatal Mann Gulch fire. I have been on the tour boat for the past three summers with visiting family and have enjoyed it every time! If you are in the area and are looking for "Montana" stuff to do, add this to your list right below Glacier National Park! It is a lot closer and can be done on a day trip, though I would recommend staying in Helena, for it is also a treasure trove of history and entertainment! Here are some more photos of us, for more check out the links on the sidebar! =o)
