Our Great Alaskan Road Trip: Glacier National Park

We arrived at St Mary’s, Glacier NP to find that the magnificent Going To The Sun Road was closed at the campground. We had purposely chosen the east side and St Mary’s cg so we could drive the Going to the Sun road and perhaps re- hike some of the trails we had taken with Shannon back in the 80’s.Unless we drove an hour to the west side of the park, it was inaccessible. There was construction going on, so later this year the road will be open. Just not while we were visiting!

We have camped at Two Medicine cg four times in the past 30 years, it is a very special place for us. Excellent views of the lake and mountains, quiet campground without any amenities, and lots of hiking! We spent one of our days there and had the good fortune of seeing a Big Horn Sheep swim part of the lake to cross right in front of us.

We also drove up to Many Glacier and enjoyed time hiking, scanning the cliffs, and picnicking.image
