Day 7 was laden with awesome water-based adventure! It all began around 11:15AM with a scenic float down the flathead river, courtesy of Montana Raft Co! It involved one excited 7 year old jumping overboard to his heart’s delight!
Every day of this incredible road trip just got better and better. We thought we had seen the most incredible stuff the day before and then we encounter more mind-blowing scenery and unbelievable vistas. That was Day 6 in a nutshell!
Day 4 was jam packed with awesome! After learning about the free shuttle on Day 3, we decided to get up early (around 5:30AM) and drive to the Apgar visitor centre so that we could get on the first express shuttle going to Logan’s Pass. This is basically the summit of the Going to the Sun Road and there is a parking lot and visitor centre up there as well. We were very, VERY thankful we got an early start!
So Day 3 of our epic road trip took us from Waterton, Alberta to West Glacier, Montana. The route took us over the most incredible drive I’ve ever done the Going to the Sun Road. It was created in 1932 solely for tourism. The road only has one switchback and follows the contour of the mountain the whole way. It’s absolutely majestic and words can’t describe how incredible the view is. It is an absolute MUST SEE bucket list trip! (more…)
