Glacier Vacation

We are back from a road-trip vacation to Montana and had a fantastic time! Besides lots of time in the car, we went to 13 national park areas, hiked over 30 miles, tried lots of great craft beers, and saw tons of beautiful sites and animals.
Our ultimate destination was Glacier National Park on the Montana/Alberta, Canada border and it did not disappoint. Since we went to Big Bend at the Texas/Mexico border over winter break, I wanted to go to the northern border next (too bad it's 29 hours from our house!). There was plenty to see along the way - we stopped at Yellowstone and Grand Teton again, added classic South Dakota sites and a few Colorado days to the trip too.

We loved this trip and highly recommend Glacier National Park, add it to your to-visit list ASAP. Next time we want to go spend a month there with an RV. The trails are calling...
