Thursday morning dawned with a clear blue nearly cloudless sky. The mountains glistened with the white snow that capped their peaks. It was a glorious day to take the camera to see if some of the local beauty could be recorded. It was, however, well below zero (real temperature, not the wind chill stuff). Undaunted by the cold (I’m a native after all), we set out and the photos will appear below the magic squiggly thing.

The  Lake:

Flathead Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Great Lakes. We stopped at Wayfarers State Park and walked down to the beach. The broken ice looked liked broken panes of glass. Fog lifted from the water which was much warmer than the air.

Food Porn:

It was cold and so we ventured into the nearby village of Bigfork to find warmth. We forced ourselves to go into a warm, comfortable little restaurant where we encountered warm food.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
