If you are feeling adventurous, make your way up to Lincoln Peak before there is too much snow! We did it last weekend and the views were amazing! Sperry Chalet is the perfect spot to take your lunch break.
1. Drive the famous Going-to-the-Sun-Road: Have your cameras ready for this one folks. The world famous GTSR climbs twists and climbs it’s way through some of Glacier National Park’s most spectacular scenery for about 50 miles. Start at the West Glacier entrance, drive along Lake McDonald (don’t forget to stop & take some pictures!) through the forest & then begin the climb towards Logan Pass. You will be rewarded with views in every direction. Stop at the visitor center for souvenirs & be on the lookout for both mountain goats & bighorn sheep as they can be commonly seen up here. Begin descending towards St. Mary’s Lake as you drop away from the continental divide. It will take about 2 hours to get across the 50 mile road because of slow speed limits (trust us – you wouldn’t want to drive fast on this road!), plan on another 2 hours back to the kampground via either Going-to-the-Sun-Road or highway 2.
