Glacier National Park, 2009

George & Yvonne at Logan Pass

We visited Glacier National Park for three days in early July, 2009. We are standing at the marker for Logan Pass which is just a short distance from the visitors center. Three days of hiking was a nice break during our train trip from Chicago to Vancouver, WA. Glacier Park is the place to go for excellent hiking in beautiflul mountaneous terrain! In a 1983 bicycle camping trip, George rode up Logan Pass on Going–to–the–Sun–Road with a BikeCentennial group.
