Glacier National Park has long been on my list of places to go. With a wedding around the corner at Bigfork, spending the day at Glacier was a no brainer. Unfortunately for us, time was not on our side so I’ll have to hold off on backcountry exploration another time.
We decided to spend the day exploring Going to the Sun Road, a VERY popular portion of the park that takes you up the top of Logan’s Pass (6,647 feet) and through beautiful valleys and lakes. If you drive straight through it’s only 2 hours, but we stretched it out to about 5 or 6…(I wasn’t really looking at the clock).
This van was too cool so I had to take a photo with it.
We took our time stopping along the way and taking a mini hike from the Logan Pass Visitor Center to Hidden Lake Overlook (3.7 miles roundtrip). We saw many mountain goats!
Hidden Lake Overlook was beautiful for the minimal effort.
