|The West Entrance to Glacier NP|
|Paused Along Going-To-The-Sun Road|
In Full Rain Gear
We found an awesome KOA just outside Glacier NP. We had some rain and cold temps today. We kept our raingear on all day. We found out when stopping at the visitors center at West Glacier, the Going-To-The-Sun Road just opened FOR THE SEASON yesterday at noon. We were shocked that it was this late. After talking to some rangers, they said it was about two weeks early. WHAT!!! You mean to tell me that the road doesn’t open until late June? Wow…We were hesitant about the run on this road.

We had lunch outside the park and continued on to Calgary. Hoping to reach Canmore, about 60 miles west of Calgary. We made it and found no campgrounds with showers, which we sorely needed. We decided to motel it tonight and eat out. Our cooking is beginning to get old. The weather is very good and temp in the 70’s, with clearing tomorrow and same temps. We will go on to Banff, then north on the Icefields Parkway. We finally decided to fill up our auxiliary gas tanks. We are looking forward to good weather, good roads and Alaska – maybe three days away.
