Glacier National Park

A Rainy Day in Glacier National Park

          This is the last post from my trip to the U.S. and Canadian Rockies.  My previous posts were from Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Banff, Waterton Lakes, and Kootenay National Parks.  They are linked, if you want to check them out.  Glacier is the park that we had the worst luck with.  The weather was just pretty bad.  It was chilly, rainy, and foggy.  There were very few breaks in the rain that allowed me to even get out of the car and take photos. Of course, we stopped at all of the pull-offs to look out but I didn’t want to get my camera wet so I didn’t always get photos.  I didn’t get that many pictures and didn’t get any of myself there. That’s the bad thing about doing a road trip with so much jammed in.  If there is bad weather or you have an issue there isn’t really time to stay longer.  I wish we could have just had one more day to spend at Glacier.  We could have extended the trip one day because we didn’t have to work immediately when getting home but we also had the dogs and wouldn’t be able to hike anyway.  We decided just to go back to Glacier National Park someday.  Despite the rain and fog, we still had a good time.  Living in L.A. I don’t get a lot of interesting weather and honestly, I miss it.  

          Glacier was beautiful, despite the fog. We could still see a lot of the park.  We drove the Going to the Sun Road from the East entrance to the South-West.  My favorite thing about this park is how blue the rivers and lakes are.  They aren’t as blue as Banff but they were still incredibly blue.  That was the common theme with this trip.  I can’t wait to return to Glacier someday and do some hiking.  I also want to go back to the Canadian Rockies so that I can visit Jasper, Glacier in Canada, and Banff again.  I want to go back to Banff so that I can canoe/kayak in one of the lakes.
