Steph and I joined my parents on a trip to Glacier National Park. We only really had one item planned out beforehand, a rafting float, but we still got to see plenty of the gorgeous landscape in and around the park. We took a ski lift up to the summit of Big Mountain outside the park. There was a trail leading from the summit to the bottom of the ski lift, so my mom, Steph, and I hiked down while my dad enjoyed the top. We ate a few of the huckleberries that were growing along the side of the trail, and they were pretty tasty.
We stayed in Grouse Mountain Lodge in Whitefish and it was a very nice building. We wish we had remembered our bathing suits so that we could have enjoyed the hottub.
We went a little ways into the park and did the Cherry Creek trail and the Trail Through the Ceders loop.
The rafting float was very calm, as it was the lowest time of year for the stream. We had to get out and walk next to the raft for a bit, which was a nice change of pace. The float was very pretty, and the guide was great at giving good information about why the mountains had tree mohawks.
