East Glacier Park

We went to the East Side of Glacier, to St. Mary, Montana. It was a delightful trip. We had to go around the park, because the Road to the Sun road was too difficult for a 5th wheel to be pulled. (Not and still have Glenn and Laurence's hearts still beating properly.) It actually is restricted to a 21' total length.
Just inside the park from St. Mary.

This is the KOA Campground we stayed in. I wouldn't recommend the KOA,
but the view is totally AWESOME!!

The day we were up at the Visitor's Center on Logan Pass was the first day the Road to the Sun was open for the season.
They told us that this is the latest opening they have ever had.

We met this guy at the Logan Pass Visitor's Center.
It is the first time I have ever gotten a picture of a
Big Horn Sheep, and only the 2nd time I've ever seen one in the wild.

Billy Goat's Gruff??? A mountain goat we saw along the side of the road...

Sunrift Gorge

Swift water below Sunrift Gorge

Just below Sunrift Gorge, it is so beautiful there.
I started to hike down stream a bit when some people stopped me and told me not to go on down unless I had pepper spray for bears as they had just encountered one on the trail. I decided I didn't need pictures that bad.

Can you believe he still puts up with me???
Sidney and Laurence

Those two amigos once again.....

There were so many waterfalls, you couldn't even begin to count!
I think partially it is due to the heavy snowpack and now all the run-off.
But it surely made for BEAUTIFUL SCENERY!!

  2. I'm game Glenda!! I can't imagine how much fun we could have the 2nd time around!! LET'S DO IT!!
