First time at Glacier National Park: Going to the Sun Road, St. Mary Falls, Lake McDonald, & more!
We made it to Glacier! For our first day at Glacier National Park we spent the day driving around the Going to the Sun road, hiking to Sun Point, Baring Falls, St. Mary Falls, and Virginia Falls, seeing wildlife, checking out different viewpoints and the visitor center, swimming in Lake McDonald, and celebrating Kathryn’s birthday!
It was a fun day full of some of the most beautiful scenery we have seen in the US!
