We reached Glacier National Park!
Oh what a place! But be bear aware! 😳 They do scare the crap out of you about the Bears! (As a tip, they do recommend bear spray if you plan to hike. We found a place in Apagar Village that lets you rent the spray. If you’re planning to hike a few days, renting the spray is worth it as it runs upwards of $50 to buy it.)
We had big plans for the next couple days so we did a simple drive to Lake McDonald and the lodge.
The lodge was exactly what I’d hoped it’d be. Old. Wooden. Authentic – with all sorts of animal heads plastered to the walls.
The back doors opened to a patio with stairs right down to Lake McDonald with mountains cascading in the background.
