Nuestro Encuentro en U.S. (Parte 1, Excursiones y Paseos)

Golden Gate Bridge

Rober: One of the outings we couldn’t pass up in San Francisco was the well-known Golden Gate Bridge. After having breakfast in the Castro, in a quiet café, full of plants, we made a quick visit to the Painted Ladies, then headed towards the bridge. The original idea was to rent bikes and ride over, but in the end we decided to walk, and without a doubt, it was a great choice. It takes about 45 minutes and the views are nice! On the opposite side of the bridge, we went to Sausalito, where we ate fish and chips before getting on the ferry to SF, which passes right by the Alcatraz prison.

Jessica: San Francisco es una ciudad pequeña, comparado con otras grandes ciudades, y por eso se puede ver mucho caminando. Fuimos a algunos de mis lugares favoritos, Thorough Bread and Pastry, Stable Cafe, Dolores Park, y Community Thrift. Me encanta caminar por San Francisco, porque cuando subes las cuestas siempre encuentras nuevas vistas. Por otro lado, si buscas una vista impresionante, sin lugar a dudas cruzar el puente Golden Gate a pie es la manera perfecta de disfrutar de la silueta de la ciudad.

Glacier National Park (1): Lake McDonald

Rober: In Missoula, on sunday morning, we packed our backpacks and put Jessica’s parents’ canoe over the Jeep, We were leaving to Glacier National Park. John, Jessie’s dad told me it was his favourite place in the world, and now I know why. We had brunch on the way, in Dixon, and arrived at Lake McDonald, where we dropped the canoe in the lake and started to paddle to a small beach where we swam. After that we drove to the wood cabin where we spent the night. The next morning we drove to Many Glacier and hiked in a light rain to Redrock Falls, a stroll I think I’ll never forget.

Redrock Falls

Jessica: Como Diana y Rober solo iban estar una semana en Missoula, dudaba un poco si hacer un viaje por carretera durante tres días era una buena idea, pero Glacier tiene tantos paisajes espectaculares que no debes perderte la oportunidad de visitar algunos de ellos. Habíamos hablado de acampar, pero al final decidimos alquilar cabañas, y me alegro porque hizo más frío de lo habitual. Las cabañas se pueden alquilar al servicio de conservación del bosque, y son muy básicas. Tienes que llevar tus sábanas, comida, y platos, y no hay agua. Pero tienen lo más importante–la calefacción. Llegamos a la cabina por la noche y cuando nos despertamos, parecía una estación diferente. Había llovido y las hojas en los árboles estaban amarillas.

Glacier National Park (2): Holland Lake

Rober: The day before we had also visited Logan Pass Visitors Center, where we hoped to be able to spot some bears or wild animals, but the day was rainy, windy, and foggy, we couldn’t see much. Still, it was worth it. The next day, we were at Lake Holland. We hiked to the waterfall with the same name as the lake, and the views were breathtaking. We had a picnic by the lake and decided to take another ride in canoe, but with a novelty, Jacob rented a paddle board! It was my first time paddle boarding and it was awesome!

Jessica: Solíamos ir de camping a Holland Lake. Es un lago hermoso en la zona de Seeley Swan, donde hay más que cuarenta lagos pequeños. El lago más al sur, está a una hora de Missoula, así que esta es la región a la que solemos ir para una noche de acampada o para pasar el día. Después de un día nublado y frío en Glacier, nos alegró ver el sol. No se puede decir que fuera un día perfecto para bañarnos, pero lo hicimos de todos modos.

Hiking the “M” Trail

Rober: As you can imagine, I already knew a number of places in Missoula thanks to the blog. One of them was the “M,” which Jessica wrote a post about some time ago. It was Friday and one of our last days in Missoula. We woke up, had a coffee on the way, and headed to the “M.” I went ahead, and I met Diana and Jessica at the top. The views of Missoula from there are great and we could see all the place we had visited during our stay there; Clark Fork River, Orchard Homes, Caras Park, Jessica and Jacob’s house, the city center, the church… no doubt a fascinating hike at the end of our trip.
