Road Trip, Part 4 wraps up our week in Glacier Park. Here are several photos of the Lake McDonald area:
McDonald Creek’s opaque color is the result of glacial grinding of rock into fine particles that become suspended in water.
Lake McDonald Lodge was completed in 1914. A fine spot for lunch!
And a view of the lake:
Our cabin was the perfect place to observe National Martini Day on June 19…
While the river flowed by and wildlife came out to browse.
The Park Service has come to see fire as a natural occurrence and today, only fires that threaten structures are actively fought. In 2003 wildfires burned 13% of the park.
Finally, the day before we were scheduled to leave, Going To The Sun Road opened. Here are several photos from the drive up and over Logan Pass.
And so ends our week in Montana. Now for the drive home.
