Aug 13 Day 43 Saturday Columbia Falls to Shelby, MT

It's hard to write about the incredible scenery we saw today as we rode in a Dodge Sprinter Bus to the Mt Logan pass. It is much easier to just show photos, but there isn't room in the blog. I was able to sit in the front passenger seat with the best view by far. It is the first time I have been able to ride in that seat in a machine the same as our View.  The driver, Linda, was a school bus driver from Columbia Falls and does this driving job up and down the mountain 3 times a day, then does once more for fun at night to see the stars. Glacier National Park really has very few glaciers. We didn't see one.

The park has some 700 miles of trails.  The Highline Trail is a 12 mile trail from the Mt Logan summit that drops at least 3,000 ft.  It is just like the Grand Canyon trails. There is a cable arranged like a hand rail if you don't like looking down thousands of feet as you hike along a path that might be 3 feet wide.  We had lunch at the Macdonald Lodge with some nice people from Deland, FL. They are doing their travel in a Miata convertible like Mavis's.
