June 21, 2012 – The weather breaks and we do Glacier again

posted in: Oregon | 0

Since you grew up here, Mike B. You owe it to Winter to take her to Glacier, it is a pretty park due to its mountain lakes, peaks and waterfalls. Without some serious hiking there really is only one road of interest, “The Road To the Sun” also known as Logan Pass. This our second trip over the pass. The rest of the roads in the park require a passport to get through as most of them enter Canada. We think July is the best time of the year to see this park, but the high water in June is fun to watch. Don’t take your lady to the “Cheap Sleep Hotel” in Whitefish! From my observation, it is no way to impress her. Take her to the Best Western Lodge, she is less likely to hit you with something.

How would you liked to have been the guy who repelled off the cliff to put the stones in place for these arches. Hope they paid him well!

We made it to the top, but the sun is not here! What a rip! The clouds are neat though.

Only 6,000 feet! We were at 9,000 on Sunday, but only had half the snow! Whats the deal? Does 300 miles in latitude make that much difference?

Man, i wish I had his job. He gets to start avalanches by scooping the snow off the road, and dumping it on the people over the cliff. Switch backs are awesome – So Cool!!!

Bet they did not know they would be stuck on the side of cliffs when they joined the Masons.. I think it would be safe to have joined a monestary

   So that is Glacier National Park. If this post did not make you you want to come to Montana, you probably have something wrong with you, and should be kept home for your own safety.   Have a good evening and a Good Night!! – Off to Washington in the morning. See you there!
