This is the second of three issues about Glacier National Park. To see the first--Apgar--go to the following issue below.
To get to Two Medicine, we joined Route 2 east out of West Glacier and then Route 49 north. Signs made it clear that we could go no further than Two Medicine on that route--limits of 21 feet in length and 8 feet in width. This is on the road into Two Medicine
The sites were all on a first come , first serve basis. There were open sites, but the campground was busy. Again, many hikers.
There are a number of Bighorn sheep that visit the campground. This is a mom and lamb. The males have the big rounded horns--so the ranger told us.
We were thinking mountain goats.
Jan and I headed up the Aster Park Trail. That was to give us a great overview of the lake and campground.
Along the way are small flowers --some that we saw blooming weeks ago at lower elevations. We are now at about 5,000 feet of elevation.
We kept crossing paths with a nice young couple. We offered to take their picture--it was their 14th wedding anniversary--and they offered to take ours.
Didn't break the camera--so I guess we're good.
These blue flowers, we had not seen before.
Lots of colors.
Jan had a chance to use the new camera.
Good job, Jan!!!
We remember that Grampy used to say, "Atta girl!"
"End of Trail" sounds a little scary.
Oh, I guess they didn't mean "that".
Always like to add pictures of old cars. These are adventurous antique owners, because it is a long, long ride to a town of any size.
Two medicine was a great stay. You could spend a day kayaking on the lake, climbing trails, or just sitting and enjoying the scenery.
