We started our trip late Friday evening by making the 10 hour drive to Missoula, where we stopped for fuel, food and last minute camping items; then we made the 3 hour trek into Glacier. When we arrived in Glacier we had beautiful weather the first two days on the west side of the park, but once we moved to the east side the weather changed; one day we had beautiful 70* weather and the next we had snow and 23* temperatures! Even though we were not truly prepared for the weather conditions we made the best of each day with long hikes; we hiked 30 miles in 3 days!
Here are a few of my favorite photos of the trip, but trust me.... the pictures don't do the place justice.
