My father and I had a wonderful day yesterday touring Glacier National Park. I took more video and photos than I have Internet bandwidth from our hotel to share, so here are just a few highlights.

We took a beautiful 4.2 mile (round trip) hike to Avalanche Lake, near the west entrance to the park. I kept thinking of the drought in the southwest seeing all this water. Glacier received 200% it’s normal snowfall last winter.


This is a photo on my Dad and I by Avalanche Lake. This was one of the most picturesque spots I’ve ever visited for a picnic!


This is my favorite photo from our trip so far. I took this from the top of Logan’s Pass on “Going to the Sun Road,” which you can see in the photo. My Facebook and TwitPic caption for this photo yesterday was, “I have found heaven, and it is called Montana.”


Last of all, here is a short video I recorded by a snowbank below Logan’s Pass. I recorded this mainly for my family, who endured 108 degree temperatures yesterday in Oklahoma City. I want to bring my family here in the sumner of 2013. This is amazing country to see!

    Glad you enjoyed Glacier. The hike back to Avalanche Lake is one of my all time favorite Montana hikes.
