Glacier National Park - Sunday, June 27th, 2010 - in car

We started out the day today walking across the street from the hotel and eating at a little restaurant called "Whistle Stop". I ordered French Toast thinking it would come with two pieces of french toast and that would be plenty as we were not biking today. Well the french toast here comes as almost a whole load of bread with apples, cinnamon, and cream cheese filling. WOW - very good but way too much - John also got to enjoy it. Actually we wouldn't have had to order anything else if we would have known the portion sizes.

Afterwards we went to the office at the Sears Motel and asked the gal where she would recommend we go. She suggested that we drive up north of St. Mary's to another part of Glacier National Park called "Many Glaciers". So we hopped in the car and headed north winding our way up the mountain with beautiful views in every directions. We came across a group of 10 or 12 horses that were running wild on the road and into the field. How our grandchildren would love to see that. We have also seen our share of deer but we still have not seen any moose or bear. We were so happy that we had the opportunity to go to "Many Glaciers" with a spectacular waterfall and beautiful lake surrounded by mountains. If you haven't been to Glacier I would recommend a visit here.

After leaving "Many Glaciers" we headed south and drove the "Road to the Sun" again and then headed back to our hotel. We ended up going to dinner at another restaurant just up the road from our hotel and then went to bed early as we are planning on biking to West Glacier tomorrow. Due to the traffic and warmer weather we are planning on getting up at 4:30 and heading to West Glacier by 5:00.

What a great summer we are having!

Life is good!
