Rolling In

Jumped across Glacier National Park today with Jake ( @soren ) and had to start it off with a stop at one of our favorite places; the overlook to St. Mary Lake.

This was about 6am and the sun was to my back, just striking the forward trees. I was still in the shadow.

This is truly breath taking!!! Like a scene in a travel magazine!!! Another FAV!
July 24th, 2013  
Gorgeous! I can't wait to see this for myself next week. If you have any suggestions of must see places in GNP I would love to hear them.
July 25th, 2013  
@jenniferruge Thanks Jennifer! My first piece of advice; get there early. If you try to get through the park this time of year between 1030 and 1500, expect to be a little frustrated with delays and lack of parking. Must sees: Trail of Cedars and Avalanche Lake trail same parking place in the park. You don't have to hike all of the way to the lake, the first half-mile of trail is the most interesting bit. Logan pass; get out and hike the boardwalk up to the Hidden Lake overlook. You may see lots of sheep, goats, and furry critters; breath-taking views too. Highline Trail; I'd recommend hiking all of the way to Granite Park Chalet, but you don't have too. Brilliant views along the whole trail. The St. Mary Lake overlook (where this shot was taken), and close by there are trails to many fantastic waterfalls. Many Glacier; a little bit of an out-of-the-way drive but well worth it; plenty of great trailheads there and splendid views. And of course, The Palette Cafe in Columbia Falls :)
July 25th, 2013  
Thanks Aaron! Your suggestions have been added to the list of places to see. I am thankful we will be staying at different places in the park wich will allow us to start early each morning. We will have to check out the Palette cafe on our way in or out of the park. Thanks again for the suggestions! It is going to be a great holiday.
