Mississippi Mom and Grandmom "writing" about travel and life
Glacier 🏞 National Park
We love traveling and adventures! Glacier National Park is the most beautiful place! We have loving being in Montana with low temperatures and no humidity. GNP is a wonderful place to spend a week or long weekend! I’ll share some of our favorite places.
The first day we went to Avalanche Lake and then St. Mary’s falls. Below are some of those pictures. Also we this was our first Flathead Cherry stand stop! 🍒

The second day we booked a Flyfishing trip out of Lake Stream outfitters in Whitefish. We met our guides( we had bought our fishing license online the night before) and got ready to go. It was a beautiful river and we had more luck before lunch than after lunch. But the best part was seeing an eagle eating a fish and then another eagle try to go get another one. 🦅
The the next day we headed to Logan’s Pass. This parking lot fills up early. It was rainy and cloudy but we forged ahead. We hiked the Garden Wall and the Highline Trial.
The next day we toured Proof Research in Kalispell.
And hiked Whitefish Mtn. The boys rented mountain bikes. 🚵🏻♂️

The National Bison Refuge was the adventure the next day. We drove past Flathead Lake which was incredible .
Whitefish Farmers Market is incredible. It is on Tuesdays from 5-730.
We tried to go back to Hidden Lake or Highline Trail but could not find a spot in the Logan pass parking lot. My son described it as a Games of the Thrones scene. But we went west and found the Gunsight Pass/Jackson Glacier overlook. We hiked Gunsight Pass. . It is a tough hike mainly for people backpacking there for a couple of nights. But we hiked down to the most beautiful waterfall/Creek area, had lunch and then hiked back out. It was a strenuous steep hike out but also beautiful.
Here are some of our delicious dinners. It was nice for my adult children to cook most nights. We did enjoy Tupelo Grille and Last Chair. The Sweet Peaks has delicious homemade ice cream. Also Whitefish has a very active recovery community. There are many meetings and all times every Day! The Presbyterian Church has a room just for recovery! Most of the AA meetings were open.
I highly recommend Montana and GNP for a family vacation. Get bear spray, bear bells and walking sticks. We love traveling and exploring the 🇺🇸 USA! We have so much to be proud of and a lot of Gods creation to see!
