Hiking Avalanche Lake and Biking Going-to-the-Sun Road 2018

When Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park is closed in the spring, the two most popular activities from West Glacier are hiking to Avalanche Lake and biking the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

Apikuni Falls with Red Rock Falls 2018

It’s been a while since we made it into Glacier National Park, but we made it happen this weekend. The trick is always to figure out where to go. Spring really restricts where you can go due to snowpack (especially this year!). This slimmed our pool of options, so we decided to hit up Apikuni…

The air was cool and crisp as we got…
