Route to Glacier

Here is the route we are taking to Glacier National Park. We will be going in two days ... spending the night in Missoula, MT. Again click on the map to see the Google map.







We left Gardiner on a beautiful winding road, HWY 89. For many miles it ran next to the Yellowstone River.

When possible we are avoiding the interstates and staying with the smaller local roads. Trying to see the "real" America ...



We could not avoid HWY 90 without adding to much distance to our day. But, it was pretty mellow for an 4 lane highway.






the hills reminded me of our California hills, but the trees are Pines not Oaks!
