This photo was actually taken at the end of our Glacier visit.
|Snug, to say the least, each red bus seats 17 -- four across on bench seating and one passenger in front.
DJ and I walked the grounds around Lake McDonald Lodge and peered into Russel's Fireside Dining Room which was not yet serving customers.

The 50 mile Going-to-the-Sun Road bisects the heart of Glacier, and hugs the cliffs just below the Continental Divide. It was harrowing at some places.

We all were a bit disappointed but visibility was just too poor to proceed.
We returned to the truck and inched our way back the way we came through thick fog.
The good news is that we were on the inside lane of the road coming down. A bit less scary.
Back at a reasonable elevation, we came into a group of shops where we devoured the Subway picnic sandwiches we had brought along. Tom located a store selling hot chocolate. Yum. Warming to those chilled bones.

Meanwhile... back in the truck. Two furry troublemakers destroy a Glacier National Park brochure and a plastic bag in protest of being left behind.
