Glacier National Park in Montana

West Glacier, Glacier National Park. 179204. 5pm Tuesday. 
Added 1 cube.
We approached the park and a ranger stated that only 30 miles of the road was completed. He said that we could drive in (but not thru) the park. We cruised the main path for a while and headed back to the entrance, adding another 150 miles to the trip. 🙁

The national park is really spectacular. Due to its remoteness and northern location, it’s not a highly-trafficked park.  They had snowcapped mountains everywhere, even in the heat of summer.

The roadways take you high up in elevation, so you can oversee the vast valleys.

Waterfalls and tunnels carve through the massive ridges.

Due to the construction, we had to circumnavigate the entire national park to the south.  While this truly was a pain (we wanted to get to Calgary to celebrate Canada Day), the sights on this path through mountainous Montana were still exceptional.
