Our summer road trip had us heading to check out Glacier National Park in Montana. Our journey began on Monday with an overnight stop in Sandpoint, Idaho. The next day, after a beautiful drive through northern Idaho and western Montana, found us in Kalispell, Montana.

After a quick lay of the land, we quickly ventured up to WhiteFish for an wonderful afternoon hike on Big Mountain. The next day was spent traveling around and enjoying the majestic views of the Park before heading home on Thursday.

Glacier National Park, Montana:
This park is part of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, a cooperative US/Canada park designated in 1932 and the first International Peace Park to commemorate the bonds of peace and friendship between the two nations.
(They are administered separately and border crossing rules/regulations apply.)

Glacier National Park does not allow pets on any of their trails and at Logan's Pass Visitor Center, they don't even allow them out of the parking lot. However, as you can enjoy most all the views from the comfort of your vehicle, this is not a hinderance. We just did our hiking outside of the park.
