Day 10 – Glacier National Park

I woke up this morning when my alarm went off at 6:30.  It was cold in the room, so I immediately turned up the temperature on the AC unit.

I made coffee for Shari and I and we sat in bed reading the news on the internet.
We went down to the hotel lobby for breakfast.  You selected what you wanted from a list and they prepared you a tray.

We left the hotel around 8:30 and drove to the west entrance of Glacier National Park.  Once inside the park we stopped at the visitors center.  Shari talked with a ranger about different hikes in the park.

After leaving the visitors center we drove East on the Going-to-the-Sun road until we reached the Rising Sun visitors center.  We took a bathroom break and did a little shopping in the General Store.  At 12:38 we started driving West on the Going-to-the-Sun road.  This time we are stopping along the way.  Our first stop was at Sun Point.  We saw a fox in the parking lot.  We hiked to Baring Falls which was a little over half a mile long.  It was a nice hike.

Next we drove to the Logan Pass Visitors Center where we parked and walked up to the Hidden Lake Overlook.  That was as far as we went and returned to the car and continued driving toward the West entrance of the park.

We left the park around 4:30 and drove to Costco in Kalispell.  We filled up with gas and did a little shopping.  We drove back the the hotel and did a little research on where to go for dinner.  Initially we planned to go to Scott’s Bar which had taken over a location call Winchesters Steak House.  However, on the drive there Shari spotted The Montana Club.  We turned around and went there for dinner.  Shari and I both had steak and they we great.


After a really nice dinner we went back to the hotel, took showers, and played Uno.  
I don’t feel like I really did anything today, but as I settle into bed, I feel really tired.
