Glacier National Park
We left Banff on Saturday, August 3rd, and arrived at Glacier National Park the same day, about 260 miles.
All in all we enjoyed our 6-night stay at the St Mary’s / East Glacier KOA (elevation about 4,700′) better than our Banff adventure. In Glacier we slowed down and let someone else “do the driving”.
We took Flirt out for an afternoon swim the the St Mary River.
We took a boat ride on Lake Mary and a Red Bus Alpine tour up Going To The Sun Road. However, we did our own self-guided tour to Logan Pass and beyond.

Mid-tour we were able to get off the boat and check out a nearby waterfall:

We spent an enjoyable 2 hours traveling up and down Going To The Sun Road on a 1936 White Motor Company Model 706 tour bus. Classic.
Apparently, our bus #98 was the first of the old buss fleet to be refurbished in 2000 – 2002 by Ford Motor Company who spent $1M on the first bus it refurbished — #98.
Well if I had known you were passing through Fort Macleod on the way back I’d have been glad to offer you lunch; enjoyed your shots of Glacier Park, we certainly enjoy our visits to that area.
Also like your ongoing commentary on your Hughes internet, contemplated buying last year but decided to wait to see if any thing new develops on that front.
Haven’t looked lately, but last spring I eyed a roof mounted automatic system, but the price ($28,000.00 if I remember correctly) was pretty prohibitive.
Keep up the good work, very enjoyable.
There IS a cheaper HughesNet Gen 5 alternative than $28K. See Don Marr’s website: HughesNet Gen 5 rooftop automatic systems
Thanks for the lead, I’ll have a look.
Wow.. nice pics! Very nice one of the two of you. Beautiful place.. again.. Wow! Mary
We have fond memories of hiking to Grinnell Glacier back in ’11.
