4 viewsOn Tuesday morning we woke up to some light rain. We packed up our camping gear and drove around the south side of the park (since the GttS Rd. still was not open) to the east side of the park. The next few shots are from this drive. It took us about two hours to get to the other side of the park going the long way.

4 viewsWe stopped at this gorge to look at the mountain goats on the other side. Every year the mountain goats come to these lower elevations to lick the salt on the rocks of the side of the gorge. You can kind of see some white dots on the other side of the gorge.

4 viewsOn our way up to St. Mary lake, which is where we stayed that night, we stopped at Two Medicine Lake because we heard that area was beautiful. Boy are we glad we stopped.

4 viewsWe bought a topographical trail map as soon as we got to Glacier which was an absolute necessity for us to have there since there are over 700 miles of hiking trails. We saw that there was this 7.5 mile round trip hike alone the Two Medicine Lake so decided to embark on a journey to the twin falls.
