Glacier National Park

Our trip started  from Highway #2 (Canada side)  to Highway #89 across the U.S. border but instead of taking a route via Browning, we thought of taking a shortcut via Highway #49 along twisties and narrow roads up the mountains occasionally above cliffs and snowdrifts. This shortcut brought us to the Eastern Glacier Entrance. Certainly this route did not disappoint us. The scenery was just beyond intense. Something different.

Glacier National Park is the center of one of the largest and most intact ecosystems in North America. We wanted to take the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road but unfortunately was still closed because of snow. This could have been a worthwhile drive up the mountains over the Continental Divide at 7000 feet above sea level. We will definitely come back here again for that visit.

On this trip we visited Flathead Lake, considered to be the largest natural freshwater lake in the contiguous United States. It took us over 2 hours to go around the lake. We also made Kalispell our base camp which pretty much was so convenient for dining and accomodations. We also visited the next door city of Columbia Falls (why did they call this city after a falls anyways when there is really NO falls at all?). However, there is Hungry Horse reservoir close by -- and that was worth a trip too.

We also took the time to drive over an hour to the Western Glacier Entrance and drove up to Lake MacDonald towards Going-to-the-Sun Road until we hit the road closure. Even though we were not able to go all the way up the mountains, that by itself was worth it!
