Glacier National Park

We took an enjoyable road trip to Glacier National Park over memorial day weekend. We got a late start Friday and drove most of the night. I couldn't sleep much because most of the
drive was along a raging river. My fear of crashing into a river was increased by the
billions of deer in/on/by the road. I think we drove about 8 hours that night and
didn't quite make our destination.
We drove about an hour the next day to get to Glacier. I was so excited. I went once before my mission and loved it and always wanted to return. I've bugged Dan to go before and was
happy he finally relented. But guess what? The park is not fully open for Memorial Day.
I know, so stupid. They don't plow the roads until June. We went a week early.
The amazing views from the Going-to-the-Sun Road were inaccessible.
Very disappointing. I will have to go back someday.
Anyway, after lunch we went on a small hike. A good warm-up for the kids.
