After our morning of horseback riding while we were in Montana, our backsides were a little sore so we decided to take a leisurely drive into Glacier National Park. The Going-to-the-Sun Road was not open all the way yet but we were still able to see some beautiful sites. Above is a view of Lake McDonald.
I believe this “creek” is called McDonald Creek. It feeds into the top of Lake McDonald.
At one point we got adventurous and went down a dirt road on the other side of Lake McDonald and saw where the forest was recovering beautifully from a forest fire that came through several years ago.
We walked along creek beds and saw some pretty rocks.
I iced my foot (gotta love that plantar fasciitis) in the cold creek water – brrrrrr!
We marveled at the mountains.
The Southern Gent found a cool old tree trunk.
We spied this knobby Redwood.
Finally, we drove out but not before taking one last shot of the Park’s beauty.
Happy Thursday everyone!
