After another long drive we got to our last destination before heading into Canada: Glacier National Park - pretty much minus the glaciers.
We headed out to scout out some locations and before really entering the park we saw a bear! It was a black bear, and after another hour we saw another. Bears actually do exist! We got some bear spray as a just in case as we need it for Mt Assiniboine, and i think Jen was pretty happy to have it :p

The Going to the Sun Road was closed due to the Reynolds Creek Fire, so we drove US-2 around the park and then headed north on MT-49 and US-89. We stopped at an overlook on ...
Gibson Reservoir was pretty cool but again very saturated with flies and mosquitos so it was time to move on to Glacier National Park. A park we were were unable to enter last time due to the government shut down in 2013. After a 6 hour drive due to two bouts of road work, we arrived in Glacier with enough daylight (it got dark around 10:30 p.m.) to go see a ...
