You never know what you will see when you happen to look down!

As we were walking across a bridge over McDonald Creek today in Glacier National Park, we saw a most usual sight. A bride laying in the water! I only took this one photo of her and I hope she didn’t care.

A day, in our life, spent in Glacier!

“I have no words to adequately describe the raw beauty of Glacier National Park. 

Nor, do I have the words to express, the feeling of pure joy, while I stand in this beauty.”

 

These photos were taken this afternoon, in Glacier National Park, driving to the Fish Creek area.

These photos were taken yesterday on our way to Logan Pass, in Glacier National Park. The day was cloudy and last night we had a thunderstorm pass over.

Going-to-the-Sun road. It is a pretty scary road to travel! We went as far as Logan Pass.

~Glacier National Park, Day One~

 

We are staying in a RV park two miles from the entrance of Glacier National park. Today, after we arrived and got situated in our site, we decided to take a drive. We stopped at Five Lake and then drove into Glacier National Park. It was a pretty day and we enjoyed our short foray into Glacier and can’t wait to truly begin exploring this beautiful park tomorrow.

This is a beautiful Visitor Center built and hosted by Alberta, Canada. We stopped here to pick-up some information about traveling into Canada. Perhaps in the fall of 2015!

Traveling along Going-to-the-Sun Road

Lake McDonald is the largest lake in Glacier National Park. Lake McDonald is approximately 10 miles (16 km) long, and over a mile (1.6 km) wide and 472 feet (130 m) deep, filling a valley formed by a combination of erosion and glacial activity. Lake McDonald lies at an elevation of 3,153 feet (960 m) and is on the west side of the Continental Divide. The Going-to-the-Sun Roadparallels the lake along its southern shoreline. The surface area of the lake is 6,823 acres (27.6 km²). [Information taken from the web]
