life on pine

glacier national park

Kate ParrishComment

this past week was spent national-park-hopping / road tripping across montana and wyoming and i want to relive it already. we started in glacier, and though it got off to a rocky start {missed connections; lost baggage; extra 3 hour drives; etc} it was all worth it when we finally arrived. some highlights / must dos if you're ever in the area include:

stay @: glacier park lodgemany glacier hotel , or the islander inn – these are all so cozy and perfect in their own little way, and are near some of the best hiking + adventures. 

if you'd prefer to camp {glamp} stay @ glacier under canvas – we visited their yellowstone location and it was a dream. 

^^ many glacier hotel tucked between the mountains 

hike @ grinnell glacier – we agreed this was the best hike we've ever done. it was challenging, beautiful, full of wildlife {we came packin' bear spray}, and had the most rewarding ending – a glacier that will sadly melt within the next 6 years.

drive the going-to-the-sun road // this 52 mile scenic route was mind blowing. photos do it no justice, but i would recommend this drive to anyone

^^ the islander inn alongside flathead lake we spent a rainy evening across the road @ the raven listening to live music and drinking local montana beers. day dreaming of how i can get back here one day soon ...
