Glacier National Park 9-06-11


After many years of hearing about The Going to the Sun Road we finally made it to Glacier N.P.  The scenery is awesome and is one of the highest points in the northern Rockies.

If you don’t like heights it could get a little hairy at some of the spots along the road and road construction can slow down the trip for a couple of hours, but we were in no hurry.

DSC00420The Lake McDonald Lodge is a wonderful old hunting lodge, with all the old lodgepole pine  timbers and huge fireplace.


The old Jammers were fun to see, in fact we met a gentleman looking over one  of the vehicles and he was  reliving the days when he drove them for the park back in 1956 when he was 20yrs. old!  He had some great stories to tell about those days.
