Glacier/Waterton Trip Days 4-6

From our trip this summer. Wish I could find more words to describe what a great trip it was. Photos will have to do.

After 3 nights on the west side of the park (Apgar campground), we moved to the east side of the park and camped at Many Glacier. This is a first come, first serve campground that fills up quickly. Matt gets lots of kudos as a great husband and dad for getting up early, driving over to find us a site, driving BACK to get us and the camper, and then BACK AGAIN to the new campsite. It was a lovely campground right on the river. The kids could have spent 3 days playing in the river, but we did manage to get in a boat ride and a few hikes. I loved that there was a camp restaurant not far away. Nothing like a big pancake breakfast cooked on a greasy griddle after a few nights of camping!

There was a huge rainstorm our first night in Many Glacier. That camper was well worth its price as the rain poured down!
