We spent a wonderful day at the gorgeous Glacier National Park. Our first stop was at the visitor center to get the kids each a National Park passport (It will be a great keepsake and record of our travels). We then walked down to Lake McDonald. It is hard to describe the beauty of this lake surrounded by snow covered mountains. It is an amazing sight.
We then drove up the Sun Road. We were only able to travel about 14 of the 52 miles, because much of the road was still closed off from snow and debris left from winter weather, but it was an impressively beautiful ride.
That took us to the Trail of the Cedars. It was a lovely stroll over wooden boardwalks through woods along the Avalanche Creek. It rained off and on throughout the day, so this shorter trail was perfect.
We also spent a little time down at McDonald Creek. The clear rushing waters and colorful stones are just amazing.
It was raining quite consistently by the time we got back to Lake McDonald, so we had a picnic lunch in the truck. That wasn’t exactly the plan, but we parked looking out over the lake and made the best of it. We finished our day with large pieces of huckleberry pie from the Huckleberry Patch. Yum!
