...but I am learning to be more flexible as they do. A friend and I had made plans to camp on the west side of Glacier National Park this past week/weekend. The Sprague fire which has raged for so long and taken so much from the Park got a couple good doses of wet but still is not contained. As our time came closer I realized that the west 1/2 of the Park was not going to be available to us so we decided to bail and instead do a super long day trip like we did last October and get up Going to the Sun highway to Logan Pass from the east entrance while we could. We didn't get up that road last year as it was already closed.
We lucked out and the fall colors were glorious so I'm going to do a few posts for you with photos. I actually think it was good as well the west side of Going to the Sun is just so spectacular that often the east side is rather ignored. This sort of forced us to stop and appreciate the beauty we might not have otherwise. We left home at 4 a.m. and hit were headed out of Browning as the sun came up. I was amazed at the difference in the colors in the photos as the day progressed and we came back that direction later in the afternoon.
Had a lovely dog breakfast and romp at one of our favorite spots outside the park (we found last year) and then found another side road to picnic lunch after we left the park and headed south to Two Medicine and Running Eagle Falls.
Hope you enjoy! Look for a few posts as I don't want to jam everything into one.
