This past weekend we decided to visit family members in Spokane, Washington. We drove  through the Crowsnest Pass, stayed the night in Fernie BC, and then drove down next day to Spokane. 
Driving through the Rockies is always an amazing feat, even thought we did not have much time to spend sightseeing it was none the less a worthy experience. 
Susan ,Rob and the girls where the perfect hosts, we had Cod on Saturday, went out for lunch on Sunday after a trip through downtown Spokane , then had Robs marinated Beef for supper. While the lady's went shopping on Monday ,Rob and I took a trip to Spokane mountain on the way down we had lunch at, Irish pub and brew-house,just behind the Convention Center, I munched on a great Cuban style pork sandwich and Rob had the King Crab and Shrimp melt, awesome food and great beer, we had a few different ones but the Buttface Amber Ale was outstanding. We had Golden Chicken and Tiramisu for supper,needless to say we did not eat much.
We drove back on Tuesday through Montana Glacier National Park, a bit of a longer drive but well worth  it, the scenery is absolutely  amazing and the weather was great.......and then we get back to Winter......
