My Summer Vacation, Part 5

The contents of this blog contain graphic pictures of grandeur and beauty. Mature audiences only!!!!!!!

What can I say!?! Glacier National Park was so incredible I don't even have the words to describe it. In fact, I don't think I will. I will let the pictures do the talking. Unfortunately, pictures cannot even honestly portray the absolute beauty of the land.

The first day there was spent with my parents and my little brother and his family. We had a great time exploring the west side of the park. The Road to the Sun was still closed due to heavy winter snows so we couldn't go all the way across. We were able to take a tram to the Avalanche area where we could then walk about 4 miles to where they were still plowing. We walked almost two miles of the road but had to get back because the last trams left the area at 5:00. I will say, it was enjoyable to leisurely walk the road and see the sights. I would imagine with the volume of traffic on that road, you would miss a lot of beautiful vistas.

Here are the pictures:

Looks a little chilly!!!

Free roadside showers!

Brenda decided it was better to observe than partake of the free shower.

Heidi, Grandfather, where are you?

These are just a few of the hundreds of pictures we took. Instead of going crazy and making this a gigantic blog, I will wait until tomorrow to post the second day of Glacier National Park.

  1. Those were some amazing photos. I know what you mean about photos not capturing the beauty 100%. On our RV roadtrip, within a year, I took 5,000 photos! Snap lots of them!
