Glacier National Park is located in the northern part of the state of Montana.  A small portion of the park crosses the Canadian border and is a part of Canada.   You will need a passport to cross over into Canada to visit that part of the park.  The ‘Going to the sun road’ runs through Glacier from one side of the park to the other side.  It is a two lane road that is approximately 50 miles long running from the West Glacier entrance to the St. Mary’s entrance.  This road is very narrow and gets extremely crowded during the summer months.  This is why reservations are required to get into the park from when it opens in June to after Labor Day.  After Labor Day no reservations are required. This road is truly an engineering marvel completed in the 1930’s.  The park is open all year long but the ‘Going to the sun’ road is not.  It is only accessible from the end of June to the beginning of October.  Winter and snow comes quickly to this part of the United States. On a clear day, the park is absolutely beautiful and very picturesque, vistas are everywhere, but when the clouds move in you can’t see a thing.  This is the land of the Grizzly and Black bear.  During the four days I was in the park, it rained two of those days and the trail to Hidden Lake was closed off due to (Grizzly) bear activity.  I look forward to going back to Glacier National Park for more photo opportunities in other parts of the park that I did not get to.

1st Timothy 2: 3-6

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
