What a day I have had!  We took a tour through Glacier National Park, up to the highest levels  where there is a paved road.  The taller mountains still towered  high above us.  I saw two glaciers (my second bucket list item on this trip – the train west being the other), many waterfalls, lots of wildflowers, and even a new animal.  It was a most enjoyable day.

Glacier National Park was formed in 1910 as the 10th national park.  It runs along the Canadian border, and is a hiker’s paradise with over 700 miles of trails.  But it also is accessible to those of us no longer that fit, on the Going To The Sun highway, that runs through the highest part of the park.  There is one spectacular view after another, and there were many other people and cars there enjoying it with us
