Glacier national Park, MT P1
I took This big trip before I painted the exterior, so the bus looks more like it should be in a parking lot, not a national park, but that doesn't suppress the feeling I get every time I enter a National Park. I can thank my Oma for the travel bug.
Once in the park, I went to find my reservation and stayed at Apgar Campground on the West Glacier, was a great little site.
The air clarity was not optimal as the Canadian fires ran full speed during this time making visibility not as good but that's beyond my control so no stress there, just taking in the beauty and time on the road.
Nightfall came on the first day as I was acclimating to the area. I decided to make a fire, cook some dogs, and crack open a few brews.
Post dinner, I sat by the fire and got into my new book, Death in Glacier National Park, the perfect read when hiking in grizzly country.
The next day, clarity increased due to the overnight and early morning storm. , I made my way over to Grinnell Glacier, as this was the hike I wanted to cross off my list. I also wanted to hike, Going to the sun, but this was closed due to the snow, so another time. Also of note, the Going to the Sun drive is only open to vehicles under 21', so I missed the cut-off by 4', sad.
As I returned to East Glacier, I was looking for places to pull over and snap some photos. The following set are some of the places I stopped along East Glacier.
This concludes Part One of Glacier National Park and the first 24 hours there. In the next post, I will continue the Skoolie adventure in East Glacier, including my drive and hike up to Grinnell Glacier and the amazing KOA right outside the park with just insane views.
