Glacier National Park, Camas Road and Lake McDonald Lake

FINALLY Glacier National Park.


The west entrance area: 

Well, it was July, and it was the west side and it was Glacier.  And, it was extremely crowded.  After finding a parking spot near Apgar and getting ready for a walk/hike back to the visitors center and such, this was our first "scenic" outlook.  Not bad, not bad at all!

We spent some time wandering around, checking out trolley information, maps, where to park for the trolley, times the trolley ran.

Then, we headed over to the Camas Road drive.  This was an area of previous fires. You can see Mother Nature reclaiming and new growth (pines?).

We pulled over at every opportunity.  Looking at that mountain range.  Longingly.

This guy was all by himself, fly fishing. Looks like a good place to be by oneself.

We turned back towards Lake McDonald.

At one of the pull offs, I spied daisies.  Of course, I had to have a photo.  Love fences too. Double win.

At Lake McDonald, Man said the water was cold!  LOL

And, look how clear!

And, some cannot stay out of the water, no matter how cold, dogs and kids!

This view will hold me for a bit, just, SIGHHHHH.

We had our maps, and our plan for our first visit to Logan's Pass.  That would come in 2 days.  First, we visited Hungry Horse Dam area.
