Flashback Friday: Glacier Park Day 1

Hey everybody.  It’s Friday, It’s Friday… Woot, Woot.  I am going to be starting a feature on my blog called Flashback Friday.  It’s basically pictures and stories of things that I have done and experiences that I had before I became a blogger.  I know that a lot of bloggers out there have been doing this for years and years, but I am relatively new at this.  Consequently, I have a lot of cool stuff to show you.  Yay Flashback Friday.

Today’s topic: Montana's Glacier National Park in the summer of 2008.  My mom, my stepdad Kirk, my aunt Connie, my uncle Lyle, my sister-in-law, and I decided to go on an amazing hike in Glacier.  
We started our hike at Logan Pass Visitor Center and hiked the Highline trail.

You can’t see it from this picture, but there was a grizzly down in the creek.  We watched him for a while with our binoculars.  Trust me, he was close enough.

The Highline Trail hike was 7.6 miles and it ended at Granite Park Chalet, where we spent the night.  Here’s a little tip for you.  You need reservations if you want to stay here and you have to get your reservations early because it fills up fast.  You also have to bring your own food, but they do have a kitchen you can use and a sweet rustic cafeteria.  In the evening, a ranger came into the cafeteria and told us stories and history about the chalet.  It was an amazing experience.  Come back next Friday to see some pictures of our hike over Swiftcurrent Pass ending at Many Glaciers Campground.
