Glacier NP, USA

We were up and off early towards the US border. We passed through with no issues and headed towards West Glacier KOA. We quickly set up camp and ran by the post office to retrieve a package that Grandma Susie sent with a new control panel for the water heater (it had been acting up). We then headed off with Dad on the Going-to-the-Sun Road through the park. It was a beautiful drive and we enjoyed all the vistas of waterfalls, Weeping Walls, narrow roads and the Loop switchback. We drove all the way through to East Glacier, bought some snacks, and headed back. We enjoyed a quick hike at Sun Point to a spectacular overlook. Then we stopped at the Logan’s Pass Visitors Center and hiked the Hidden Lake Trail. Mom and Emmerson opted not to go too far. Moms knee was hurting a little and Emmerson’s foot was hurting when he climbed stairs. Dad and Breighton walked the 2,560 foot elevation gain up to the Hidden Lake Overlook. It took them over an hour to go up but only 15-18 minutes to come back down! Mom and Emmerson sat along the rocks and boardwalk and watched a family of 4 mountain goats frolicking in the distance. Emmerson was a popsicle and stole Mom’s sweatshirt to stay warm. E played photographer for the entire time Dad and B were hiking. He got some great photos! E was happy to head back down the trail towards the warm visitors center. B had a great time with Dad hiking the trail with a little furry friend by their side.
