In September 2015 we made a vacation trip to Glacier National Park for some hiking, sightseeing and photography. On the way to Glacier we made a side visit to Yellowstone National Park. On our way home from Glacier we made another side trip and this one was to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

We stayed in Columbia Falls during our visit to Glacier. Columbia Falls is about ten miles away from the west entrance to Glacier National Park.

The first thing we did upon entering the park was to drive the 'Going To The Sun Road' which is the only road crossing the park east and west. In fact, the only road which actually crosses the park in any direction.

Going To The Sun Road is two lane road all the way across the park and for much of the way is a narrow two lanes winding around riding close to the mountain walls straight up on one side and straight down on the other side. The high point is Logan Pass where there is a visitor centre and some hiking trails.

The trail passes by Clements Mountain. There is some snow on the mountain. More will come later in the week.
From the trailhead near the visitor centre the trail is on a boardwalk. That extends maybe a third to a half wal along the trail. Beyond that it is just earth.

The long snaking boardwalk. In the distance but not visible as it is below the grade and thus out of sight.
