Glacier Vacation
Wednesday - Day 1

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

Fly to Kalispel, Montana, rent a car and drive to Going to the Sun Motor Lodge in Glacier National Park. We drove on route 2 along the southern edge of the park. The route basically follows the BNSF (former Great Northern) railway. The Great Northern Railway built the three notable lodges in the area, McDonald Lake Lodge, Glacier Park Lodge, Many Glacier Lodge and Prince of Wales lodge in Canada.
The cabin we were in was very small. Probably the smallest bathroom I've experienced. The sink (a micro sink) wasn't even in the bathroom, it was in the bedroom. There was no air conditioning (it was in the 80s). There were two open windows with screens and a good fan, so we slept OK. It was clean, but pretty spartan.
We at dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. The food was good and plentiful, but not cheap.

The view of Lake St. Marys from one of the lodges at Going To The Sun Motor Lodge. This was about the only place you could see the lake from the lodge.
