Our first full day at Glacier went something like this: Up with the sun at 9:30 MT –out of the room by 11:30 Drove to St. Mary entrance (Going to the Sun Road) Began the climb, stopping every few feet to take pictures Lunch at Logan Pass Visitor Ctr (chased off the tundra by vigilant park ranger) Hiked to Hidden Lake (more in a later post) More Going to the Sun Road (more later) Back down, stopping every few feet to take pictures Dinner in St. Mary’s (John realizes he’s misplaced his credit card-YIKES!) Prayed about that so it’s under control! Back to Inn-Paula cleans out car (looking for CCard) John off to front desk in search of CCard CCard found (Praise the Lord!) Paula and John share quiet time on porch Lights out on 5 tired travelers

On top of Logan's Pass at the highest point on the Going to the Sun Road. Took a hike in 80 degree weather over the snow to Hidden Lake.

I will have to say reading your blog of the trip has been really fun. Since I am stuck in the house (still can't drive yet) it brightens my day. What an adventure of a lifetime. I hope the boys are enjoying it, they look like they are. Take care! Luke says to say hi!!
