    Congratulations! I hope you have a fantastic time. I'm quite jealous.

    Don't forget a detour up to Copper Harbor in the UP of Michigan.

    A lot of great places to visit on your route.
    May I suggest a Friday or Saturday night in Whitefish, MT.
    Some nice little nightclubs/bars with great live music.
    Inexpensive lodging in, and around town. Also, not a bad 'base town' for a Glacier Park visit.

    I've listed a few other places below.

    Marc


    A little north of Highway 2, The North Cascades Highway.
    Sort of WA State's version of Glacier Park, Mont:

    Newhalem, WA and Ross lake at the West side of the North Cascades Hwy:

    Buy, beg or borrow a copy of "Ghosts in the Wilderness " by Tony & Eva Worobiec a collection of photographs mostly based along Route 2 in Montana and N Dakota.

    Congratulations on your retirement Whitey.

    You must give me a call when in Rochester (or before you leave). And don't forget to visit GEH! PM me for phone # and to talk.

    While in MT, don't forget to visit the Formulary.

    In Bagley, MN, you'll want to take a right at the light and go 3 blocks north to get a picture of the Cease Funeral Home sign. It's too bad Jiffy Balling in Shevlin is out of business. You gotta get a shot of the Big Fish bar in Bena. They've moved into a modern building right next door, but the big Northern Pike is still right alongside the road. The door is in his mouth. For even more touristy schlock there's the Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox statue in Bemidji. Duluth harbor could keep you busy for days - the lift bridge, channel and lighthouses change dramatically with the weather. The Mackinac bridge to the U.P. is pretty spectacular.

    My only contact with Route 2 is the area that would be a mere day trip for you, Maine, New Hampshire* and Vermont**. But I certainly wish you a great trip, it sounds like a fantastic way to celebrate retirement.


    * We enjoyed Littleton - neat restored 1795 mill and thriving downtown, including decorated pianos parked on the sidewalks!
    ** There's lots of interesting stuff outside of Burlington along the Lake Champlain shores.
