A day in Glacier National Park (the US one)

As you saw in our last post, we spent a highly enjoyable week at Waterton Lakes National Park , an awesome Canadian national park, which is teamed up with Glacier National Park in Montana, to form the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.

While we were at Waterton Lakes National Park we took the opportunity to drive to Glacier National Park for the day (we didn’t get the chance to stay overnight, as the campsites were all full).

Since our RV (at 23 ft) was too long for the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park, we took the shuttle bus up to Logan Pass and walked from there to Hidden Lake with A LOT of other people. While there was quite a bit of smoke in the air from forest fires raging in nearby British Columbia, we enjoyed the park (albeit briefly) and saw plenty of wildflowers and wildlife on this short jaunt.

We’ll definitely want to go back to Glacier National Park another time but, with its huge popularity, we’ll need to plan ahead to get a campground spot here.

Please join us in our next blog, where we’ll share more great hiking pics from the Canadian Rockies:  Kootenay National Park (B.C.), Banff National Park (Alberta), Jasper National Park (Alberta), Yoho National Park (B.C.), Glacier National Park (B.C.) and Mount Revelstoke National Park (B.C.).

A lot of people ask us what type of camera we use (well, they ask Dominic what camera he uses…he’s the resident in-house photographer at Roaming with the Romers) and the answer is a Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digitial Camera 24.3MP SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD (Black) w/ 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens
