This was one of my favorite places on this trip. When we picked up the map at the visitor's center we found out there was only one road that goes through the park, the "Going to the Sun Road." It's easy to understand how it gets its name after driving for a few miles. Like Dan's dad said about his visit, "I took the high road." The entire drive is incredible, but you really have to get out of the car ...
... As you drive in to Kalispell, you can see the southern border of Glacier. The wall of mountains guarding the park's inner beauty is quite intriguing, but tonight I'll be camping down below.
When I stopped at Cabela's in Kailspell, it dawned that the town wasn't quite what I expected. It seemed like lots of chain stores and strip malls, which is not really what I'm looking for. I ask one of the people who helped me at Cabela's if he ...

We loaded up and headed back down the hill, we stopped by West Glacier for some groceries and gas before returning to camp after quite a long ...
... and drabs here and there, this snow was a metre thick in some spots and honestly once we got on it the only guidance we had of roughly where the track went was footprints left by others. To keep us on our toes there were also fallen trees over the track that required some climbing and manoeuvring. On the way up we were all pretty careful about staying dry and clean, that was until it started to rain. We all got absolutely soaked to the bones ...
