This trip has been somewhat in the works for the past few summers but it just never came together. What started out as a trip to Yellowstone National Park, turned in to a trip to Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Parks in 3 weeks.
I’m currently in Whitefish, Montana staying with an Ice-friend, Julie, not far from the west entrance to Glacier NP. She has been a fantastic tour guide! And it’s a perk that she actually IS a local tour guide in addition to working in Antarctica. So far I’ve hiked, kayaked on a lazy river, berry-picked, made dilly beans, went to the symphony, and toured the park. I’ve had some down time too which was much-needed, but here’s a quick summary in pictures of the more interesting parts of my trip so far…..
Lonnie, my other Ice-friend, looking for wildlife on our hike in Many Glacier.
A little smokey but still beautiful
I feel like there should be a fly fisherman or a grizzly there in the foreground.
Hiking the Highline Trail.
Bear grass looking like Q-tips in a field.
Hello hoary marmot
Highline trail – the cliffy part.
I think there are some goats in there somewhere.
