Glacier National Park
This is an awe-inspiring if very popular place.
We started off with a winner place to camp right alongside the river. There are severe restrictions on The Going To The Sun Road. My truck was too long to drive the length of it and you have to get a pass the morning before for entry to the park. I duly logged on at 8.00 a.m. to book my pass and there were 980 available. Unfortunately to book it you had to have an account. It took me 4 minutes to fill in the account details by which time all the tickets had gone. By warned, book your account before 8.00 a.m.
Talking to fellow campers I found that all was not lost as if you get into the park by 6.00 a.m. they don’t check your tickets.
An early start the next morning gave us a super parking spot at the Information Centre and enabled us to get early access to the free shuttle buses throughout the park.
We did a super walk from the Upper Visitor Centr and we then expanded it by taking a small track to one side which gave us a much better experience, no crowds and more wildlife.
