  • Avalanche Lake Spring 2022 Bike and Hike

    The forecast called for a lovely spring day on Kristen’s birthday, so we decided to load up the bikes and head on up to Glacier National Park to bike, then hike up to Avalanche Lake. On the west side of the park, the Going-to-the-Sun Road is closed at Lake McDonald Lodge. When they’re not working […]

  • Rocky Point Nature Trail 2021

    Just west of Apgar, tucked behind the Fish Creek Campground and Picnic Area, lies a short hike to a unique vantage of Lake McDonald. This short, lollipop-shaped loop takes you through both mature and recently burned forests, along creeks, and out to rocky outcroppings. The Rocky Point Nature Trail does have a short section of […]

  • McDonald Creek Trail 2021

    A quick drive from the West Entrance of Glacier National Park takes you to the head of Lake McDonald where McDonald Creek empties into it. The McDonald Creek Trail works its way up the playful creek, in an easy-going fashion with ample views of the crystal clear water. The trail begins as a level, ADA […]

  • Skiing Grist Road to Fish Creek

    If you head west from Apgar in Glacier National Park and cross over McDonald Creek, the first road on your right is called Grist Road. Along this quaint road are a collection of private inholdings. The road dead-ends and one of Glacier’s few “bike-able” trails continues on to the Fish Creek Campground Road. I wouldn’t […]

  • Granite Park Chalet Bike and Hike 2019

    With Going-to-the Sun Road in Glacier National Park closed to cars, but open to bikes, we got a little creative and hiked up to Granite Park Chalet after biking to the Loop.

  • Frozen Lake McDonald

    With the sunshine and the warmer weather up here in Northwestern Montana, we’ve been trying to soak up the sunshine that seemed to have disappear for months. A trip to Glacier National Park was in order. The plan was to ski Going-to-the-Sun Road over to the ranger station at the head of the lake. We […]

  • Not so fast, Winter

    We opened the garage door to head out to Glacier National Park when Kristen said, “I don’t think I have enough clothes on. It’s cold.” It was a chilly morning. The clear skies that were beckoning us to get outside had also helped drive down the temperatures. We’re not ready for winter. With no specific […]

  • Climbing Mt. Oberlin 2018

    Now that Logan Pass Glacier National Park was open, we wanted to see if we could sneak up and bag a peak. Kristen had never done Mt. Oberlin, so we set off through the fog of Logan Pass and up through the clouds to a glorious summit! As we drove up Glacier National Park’s legendary […]

    The wait is over! The Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park is now officially open to vehicles all the way to Logan Pass for 2018! We were there when they opened the gates and were the first through on the west side which was super special for us and really dang exciting! Every year in […]
