East Glacier National Park

Glacier is one of those parks where you need to pack extra socks because it's going to knock the ones you are wearing right off. A "must do" is the Going-to-the-Sun Road (I rode it on a motorcycle in 2001). This engineering marvel spans 50 miles through the park's wild interior, winding around mountainsides and treating visitors to some of the best sights in northwest Montana. Unfortunately, it is not yet completely open (click here to get the current road status) so I took U.S. 2 to East Glacier to see the Glacier Park Lodge, Two Medicine, Many Glacier, and the eastern portion of the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

Lodge interior - those logs are huge

As soon as the weather permits, I will tour West Glacier.
