What I saw of Glacier National Park was amazing!!! Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see most of the park. Going to the Sun Road is the one road that goes through the center of the park – it’s about 50 miles long – and over 30 miles of it were still closed due to snow while I was visiting the park in June. While I was there, I saw some incredible photos of the snow taken on June 4 at the Logan Pass Visitor Center. If you look closely - you can barely see the roof in the photos! I’m heading back to Glacier National Park next year – in July – so hopefully the road will be open and I’ll be able to see the alpine meadows.
Even though I couldn’t visit large portions of the park – I fell in love with Glacier National Park. The views were incredible. You’ll probably notice an awful lot of water in my photos from Glacier National Park – not only was the snow melting – but it rained almost the entire time I was there!

St. Mary Lake – note the white caps on the waves at St Mary Lake – on the one day it wasn’t raining – I was experiencing 40 mph winds.
As you can – Glacier National Park is spectacular. I can’t wait to head back there next summer.
