Glacier is a great tribute to America’s national park system. The trails, roads and campsites are beautifully architected to accentuate the beauty of the northern Rockies. 2 Nights in the park gave us time to explore the snow capped Logan Pass and enjoy a hike crossing the Continental Divide and the park from West to East.
Though a late storm had close the trail we planned to hike, it was fun playing in the snow on Logan Pass.
And the mountain goats know that they rule the mountains of Glacier. They have no fear of heights or tourists.
Day two’s hike across Swiftcurrent Pass brought sweeping views of the Western slopes of the park with lush forest’s, jagged peaks and fields of wildflowers reminiscent of the Swiss Alps.
Unabashed Hoary Marmots!
Endless stretches of glowing yellow Glacier Lillies.
Cresting the Continental Divide and looking east into a completely new landscape of rocky peaks and colorful valleys.
The blooming Bear Grass dominated the eastern slopes.
After good luck hitchhiking back across the park a few hours with AAA got us back into our car. It’s still unclear how the keys got locked inside 😉
