Glacier National Park

The sun that we had been enjoying disappeared when we got up to Glacier National Park. Gray skies, wind and rain were the order for the day. We drove out to Many Glaciers area and did see our first bear of the trip. 


Saturday we drove the Going to the Sun Road from our campground in the east and went west. Currently, we are in a restaurant in West Glacier having lunch and waiting for the sky to hopefully clear for better vistas on the drive back over. (Note- the skies never cleared Saturday) . Sunday we revisited the Going to the Sun Road. The skies were blue and the scenery beautiful….if you like edges! 

This road is very narrow, no guard rails and extremely curvey…..in fact we had to take off out trailer mirrors and fold in the rear view mirrors so as not to scrape the sides of the mountain as we passed.  Not my cup of tea…. Gets me longing for the flatlands of Kansas! 

Saturday evening we saw three bear, two we being watched closely by park rangers with rifles as they were in the near vicinity of a campground. The other best was just minding his own business in a nearby field. 

On Sunday’s trip on the Going to the Sun Road we saw our first big horned sheep resting on the side of a mountain.
