Barb's summer vacation at Whitefish Lake, Montana

From my sister's baby book

The cabin and the family car

who seemed to have a thing about including people's feet in the frame.

The route we took to get there.

On the way back, we drove through Glacier National Park, which is actually where the 1st photo in this series was taken.

My sister died of breast cancer in October 2008.  Rummaging through some family memoribilia this morning, I was surprised to find her baby book in my possession.  I guess that's what happens when you designate yourself the family historian.  While paging through it, I was able to clarify portions of the mid-1950s family timeline.  Dad didn't always make notations -- year, location -- on the slides.
