All the animals in Glacier are super friendly! These crazy mountain goats were scaling rock cliffs right in front of us! We also saw a big horned sheep in the parking lot while we pulled in. I swear it was looking right at us! I’m just happy it wasn’t a bear staring me down.
One of my favorite things we did was drive through the park and stop at all the scenic look outs. You can see anything from waterfalls, to snow peaks and canyons, along with this crazy good view that looks like it belongs in Switzerland! We couldn’t help but sing “THE HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH THE SOUND OF MUSICCCC” while driving through the park.
THESE FLOWERS! I have never seen anything like them in my life. I couldn’t decide if they looked like something from a Dr. Seuss book, and an edible flower from Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. This crazy trail was along side of the lake in Many Glacier. We hiked this trail at around 8pm to go fish for a while. On our way back it was almost dark and we saw a baby moose head into the lake for a night time bath. It was so majestical. The baby swam all the way across the lake dunking its head under the water, then emerging from the water like a woman from a Neutrogena commercial. Proud moment for Gavin capturing this deer looking straight at the camera!Canoeing at McDonald Lake. I will never get over how blue the water is here.😍
More proof of the bluest water in the world! I call it blue gatorade water. I really had to refrain from sticking my head in the water and taking a drink. I’m sure this is what the fountain of youth looks like! This waterfall is on the Avalanche hike which is the most popular hike in the park. It starts out on a wooden board walk for about a half mile and then heads up a dirt trail through the thick forest for another 2 miles.The top of the Avalanche hike! We waited very last minute to start this hike and were the only people heading up while everyone started down. We knew it was going to get dark soon so we booked it up the trail. When we were about 5 minutes from the lake we ran into a HUGE bear scat in the middle of the trail. So obviously we panicked a little bit. We ran to the lake, took a could pictures, and started to actually RUN down the trail. After about 5 minutes of heading down it was completely pitch black. We finished the hike with our phone flashlights while blasting music and trying to forget about how many bear attacks happen in Glacier. Don’t worry, we survived!!
