We spent two days exploring Glacier National Park. As we are traveling with our children…I mean….dogs (duke and spike!)….we didn’t go on any major hikes since we needed to stay with them and dogs aren’t allowed on trails in National Parks.
However, we lucked out in that the weather was overcast and chilly the second day, so we could keep the pups in the car as we did a nice and short hike above Logan Pass to an alpine meadow full of flowers and wildlife (Mountain Goats, Bighorn Sheep, Marmots and Bunnies).
Glacier was amazing…it is like a younger version of Yosemite…with big granite and limestone mountains….rugged and eroding. I say “younger” since many of the mountains seem more rugged and more in the process of erosion than Yosemite, where stone faces seem more smoothed over. There were lots of animals and wildflowers…and some beautiful meadows and plenty of alpine lakes and backcountry trails.
