Greetings from Glacier National Park

My family decided to go on vacation together for the first time in a long time, and in the end we decided to go to Glacier National Park. My parents had gone many years ago and wanted me to have a chance to experience the Park, as they feared the glaciers would disappear soon. We were lucky and a few days before we got to the Park, the Going-to-the-Sun Road opened and we stopped at the Logan Pass visitor center and hiked the Hidden Lake Trail. We only made it to the overlook but it was beautiful and serene. We even saw some mountain goats that were just beyond the trees in front of us.

Sincerely,
Wesley
