          ... We then spent most of the day in the car traveling up to Glacier National Park. We did stop in Missoula, Montana for lunch and visited a nice carousel. During our drive through Montana up towards Glacier I was really sad about the smoke. There is so much that I completely missed that we were driving through a valley surrounded by mountains, it would have been a beautiful drive. Currently there are three active wildfires in Glacier, luckily none around where we are ...

          ... I made good use of the time by reclining my car seat and napping for the best part of an hour.  Needless to say, I was even less impressed when I awoke to find that the visibility was actually worse than when we first arrived, but we decided that we should just bite the bullet and go for it regardless of the weather, or we would run out of time.  As luck would have it, once we left the car park visibility ...

One incident involved the bear snatching a pillow from a sleeping camper, and the other incident involved the bear going through some clothing that was located along the lakeshore. The incidents included no injuries.It appears that the bear is not looking for a food reward, or that it has received one, but it ...

          ... decided to do a forest walk to Avalanche Lake. 5 miles. 2 of which were uphill. After having done 4 miles already, this was not the best plan. It was also not a good hike. Nothing to see in the woods-they were very dry. The lake was low in late summer. maybe this is a better hike in the spring. Anyway, happy and tired after a long day. Tomorrow is a day of rest, then back to the park for hiking on ...

          ... at the sign, then spent some time around the visitor center learning more about the trails that started here. We definitely got excited when we saw the trailhead for the Highline Trail - we could see people on it from the road. This trail is one of the more popular ones in the park, as it follows the Continental Divide along the cliffside above the Going to the Sun road. The trail to Iceberg lake also starts here - this is another glacier-fed lake ...
