Trip Report Glacier Park Trip Report

Jump to last reply

We just got home from a visit to the park and our daughter who is spending her second summer working at Swiftcurrent.

Arrival: Our first stop was The Museum of the Plains Indians in Browning. There were some great artifacts, particularly the clothing items. Next we pulled into Park Cafe in St. Mary's for coffee and a piece of Razzleberry pie. Mmmm.

We checked into our spotlessly clean and charming cabin at Swiftcurrent and reunited with our daughter. We did a quick hike to Fishercap Lake; no moose this time.

Had buffalo steaks at The Cattle Baron in Babb. Pouring rain in PM.

Day 2: Sunny! Breakfast at Babb Press. Husband and daughter hiked the Highline Trail and had an excellent time. Saw lots of animals and fields of glacier lilies. I sat on a rocky beach at St. Mary Lake with my book, had lunch at Many Glacier and kayaked around Swiftcurrent Lake. Four of us drove into Browning to attend the Indian Days celebration and Powwow. My daughter's boss asked her to attend; saw my blonde daughter in the dance circle in a swirl of costumes. A true Montana moment!

Day 3: Sunny! Slept in a bit. Had coffees and yogurt on porch of Swiftcurrent.
Met daughter and her friend at Park Cafe for lunch. More pie! Drove the Going-to-the-Sun road. Had a black bear run out in front of our car. (fourth black bear sighting of the trip) also saw goats past Logan pass and a moose in a swamp near Lake McDonald. Stopped at Sun Point (?) on St. Mary's...great vista. Logan's Pass very crowded. Waded in Lake McDonald. Dinner at Eddy's in Apgar. Drove the road home. Nice evening light on the peaks.

Day 4: Partly cloudy. Waterton Lakes. Took boat to Goat Haunt. Enjoyable. Drinks in Prince of Wales Hotel. Checked into Many Glacier Hotel and attended the Hootenany. Fun! Swam in Swiftcurrent Lake, dinner and drinks in the Swiss Pub.

Day 5: Sad good-bye to daughter. Pouring rain. Mountains and daughter receding in the rear view mirror. Waaah!
