West Glacier, MT
Fish Creek Campground
We got lucky! The sun came out our last day on the west side of Glacier so we decided to take another drive up the Going to the Sun Road. This time we can see blue skies and details. Like trees and rivers and mountains in the distance!
We had just come around the corner and look who was on the road? Whoa, this motorcycle rider backed up real quick! The young bear walked along the road a bit, then went over the side.
What makes this park so beautiful is the sheer steepness of the mountain sides caused by many years of glaciers grinding against them causing these beautiful valleys.

That's the Going to the Sun Road hanging on the edge of the mountains. It really is an amazing road.
You can see so far out in the landscape, it's amazing here!
Even in August in a dry year, there are waterfalls all around from melt off.
|If you look close you can see a small rainbow in the middle.|

Always a fun way to travel the Going to the Sun Road if you don't want to drive it yourself.
I can't wait to get to the less crowded east side of Glacier for some spectacular hikes!
