Route 2 Road Trippin'...Montana Bound

In Northern Montana, just south of the Canadian border are over a million of the most spectacular acres in the National Park System. This a landscape of ancient western cedars and snow capped peaks.

Glacier.  The Park was founded in 1897.

Drive the Going to the Sun Road. It's a spectacular introduction to the park. Hike to Apikuni Falls and spend a couple of nights in the back-country. Rangers can hook you up with a nice route for a couple days. Reward yourself with a night and dinner at Apgar village lodge.

Don't forget to bring sturdy boots. Our pick is the Salomon Discovery GTX. And don't forget the bear spray!
