Glacier National Park, Montana

After 9 hours of drive from Seattle (passing through Idaho and entering Montana), we arrived at the big sky country to experience the wilderness @ Glacier National Park, Montana. With over 700 miles of trails, Glacier is a hiker's paradise for adventurous visitors seeking wilderness and solitude...and we surely did love every minute there.

One of the most amazing highlights of Glacier National Park is a drive on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Its a scenic drive that spans 50 miles through the park's wild interior, winding around mountainsides, waterfalls, rivers, wildlife, and the list goes on and on....! It took us about 7 hours to cover all vista points on this 50 miles road... and I believe that explains the stunning beauty of this part of the world.

Here are some pictures of key vista points that we stopped at. Happy viewing!!

The Drive

Logan Pass
