Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park was our destination for this year's exploration.  We stayed at The Big Bear Inn.  It was appealing because it served a Continental Breakfast and Dinner!  Plus, and a big plus was that it had availability on short notice.
This was a beautiful lake near Polebridge, Montana.
Big Horned Sheep looking kind of shabby after shedding their winter coats.  At least most of it.
Avalanche Lake
Mountain Goats were used to people.  This guy thought he had showed up for a photo shoot and was ready to pose. 
Road to the Sun was more of a Road to Rain for us but beautiful all the same.
My first step into Canada to see The Prince of Wales Hotel.
A peak of the lake at Rocky Point
We saw this bear and her cubs crossing the road in front of us.  I was so excited I forgot to take a photo until they were well on their way back into the trees.  I was also so excited we got to see Bears but not on the trail!
The test of true friendship is to spend basically 5 days in a car.  We passed.
