OH. EM. GEE. Glacier National Park is amazingly beautiful. I’m extremely glad I decided to stop here before heading to Yellowstone. It was a pretty brutal drive getting here, though. We drove almost the entire day, only stopping for gas, and we still didn’t get to the visitor center until around 7pm. Of course, the visitor center is closed by that time, so we just headed out on the main road across the park to check things out. We spent the next three hours being awestruck by the views, and that was rushing it. I can’t even explain how intense it is to drive through the park and just experience the magic of the nature here. Almost the entire drive across Montana was filled with fields of nothing (some people might call it “hay”), then as if out of nowhere, mountains broke the skyline and we were tossed into a wonderful world of curving roads, trees a plenty, mountains, snow, waterfalls, rivers… it’s just amazing. It’s around 50 miles to drive across the entire park.
We’re camping out near the West end of the park tonight. Gonna do some hiking tomorrow and probably the next day.
