Scenic Sunday...Glacier National Park in Montana

Glacier National Park is a beautiful park. The mountains, waterfalls and the famous Going to the Sun road is just amazing.






The road can be scary at times, I had to let my hubby do some of the driving. I usually drive on our all our vacations and road trips, but there were times I couldn't look over the side. There were times a waterfall went under the road.




The views from this Going to the sun road is stunning. We split the park up into two parts staying first at the Lake McDonald and the other was on the opposite side of the park.





We took some hikes that led to waterfalls such as this one. Notice the water coming out of a hole near the middle, it looks neat.




We covered most of this park even the part of the park going into Waterton, Canada.


The wildlife viewing in this park was great too we saw mountain goats, black bears, and moose.

  1. What a beautiful landscape !! We crossed Montana in 1971 when we went to the Yellowstone park, coming from Madison/Wisconsin where my aunt and uncle lived.
