Road Trip Part 2 - Glacier

Second part of our trip was to Glacier National Park, which is up on the border with Canada. This park was formed by glaciers, so has very beautiful mountains. There are still a few glaciers left (though they are getting smaller each year), but we could only see them from a distance. This park also has a lot of wildlife in it.
2番目はカナダとの国境に接しているグレーシャー国立公園だった。氷河がある、でも少ない。そして氷河はだんだん小さくなる。

We did 2 long hikes, and a half day of paddling on the lake we stayed near. Below are some videos and pictures.

Sometime wildlife is so hard to find. This female big horn sheep was walking through the hotel's parking lot / 雌のビッグホーンヒツジ:

I wanted to see a bear while hiking, and in the last 100 yards of our last hike, we finally saw this guy / ハイキングの途中で熊見た:

The Glacier National Park is great. Especially the contrast of mountains and lakes.
I liked your pic of mountain and lake. So beautiful!
