    Logan Pass is closed during winter, on the park's web-site you can track the progress of the snow-clearing team. They proudly announced the re-opening of the pass showing a videoclip of the victorious team. Unfortunatley by the time we arrived two weeks later, the pass was closed again. Despite this setback, Glacier is still one of the greastest...

  • Mc Donald Creek

    We noticed that after a group on horseback passed us by near McDonald Falls, the path was cleared of anything the horses dropped during their promenade. I must say that this is really appreciated by us simple folks on foot!

  • Really good Mexican food in East...

    It was pouring rain and freezing, but this place was packed in a sleepy Montana town at 9 on a Thursday night. The inside had a nice ambiance but we sat out on the covered patio under a heat lamp, so it was tolerable, even pleasant, in the forty-degree weather (in August - although the next day way eighty degrees). Unfortunately we had to sit down...

    When biking downhill, try to stay under 50 MPH and be aware there is quite a drop once you fly over the stone guard rail.

    Bears!!! We saw one Grizzly and a black bear. A game warden come up one night and told us to let them know if we see a bear around our tents tonight. They were going to 'relocate' him if he came back.

East Glacier Park Favorites

    Ride your bike over the Going to the Sun Road! Start early - you have to make it to Logan's Pass (the top of the Continental Divide) by noon! Setting up camp just inside Canada and making a good old fashion Cajun chicken and sausage Gumbo.

    Hike! Walk all the terrific trails. The thing we liked best about this national park was the non-commercial nature. Everything was do-it-yourself. The scenery was amazing, especially for a Florida family. Bear warnings are posted everywhere, and bears are a real danger on all of the hiking trails. When we visited, our oldest son, Jimmy, was six...
