We spent four great days in Glacier National Park. The weather was very cold, windy and rainy. We still did some great hikes up to some alpine lakes. The Many Glaciers area was supposedly the place to see grizzlies and we did! On a hike to Red Rock lake we saw a mother with two cubs on the other side of the valley. We were not close enough to get a photo, but we got a pic of a black bear the next day foraging on the side of the road. On the last day, the weather broke and we went from daily highs of 43 degrees to 75 degrees. The night time temps are still in the low 30's though. After Glacier we camped in a remote Forest Service campground that we had all to ourselves.
