Glacier Sign

The sun came out on Monday and Tuesday and so we went off to Glacier National Park in search of stuff to photograph.

Outside of Glacier:

This is the valley just outside of Glacier National Park looking at the Rocky Mountains.

We don’t all live in tipis, but there are tipis in the area.

Steam is coming off the lake in the foreground—it was about 5 below zero when this was taken.

This is the road along the lake.

The road is kept open for about 8 miles along the lake to the lodge. The closed road is then used by cross-country skiers.

The Lodge

The totem pole at the lodge is shown below. The Kootenai, for whom this is a sacred area which is important in their creation stories, never made totem poles.  See: National Parks and Indians: Glacier National Park   for more about the local Indians.

Outside the Park:

The Isaac Walton Inn is a railroad stop outside of the park and has a Great Northern Railway theme.
