There are at least 3 days of good activities at Many Glacier -- more or less depending on whether you ride the boats to Lake Josephine/Grinnell Glacier and hike to Redrock Lake. A flyrod is a plus...

Two Medicine is pretty low-key and nice as it goes. Beats the St. Mary's campground 2:1 IMO!

relative term

compared to west glacier, east glacier looks like a slum IMHO; east glacier is indeed beautiful in its own way...many glacier is a disapointment relative to its hype, but still beautiful...a boat ride is a boat ride, water is water,...lake superior is a grand body of water...

hiking with hundreds of others on the same trail is not in my playbook...

polebridge, Montana

Polebridge is a small town ? North of Fish Creek in West Glacier...one road that gets you there is the outside loop/...a paved, dirt semi improved gravel road and the 25 miles takes about 35 minutes...Once there you find a Mercantile Company; housing a bakery that serves the best hot sandwiches, breads and rolls to be found for miles to return to West Glacier one can go back the way one came or one can take the inner loop...a primitive...very primitive road that traverses the insides of west glacier NP...a beautiful trip of 5 and 10 miles per hour...making the return trip 1 1/2 hours but surely worth every minute
assorted shots of many glacier and the sun road from the east

Glacier West

I cannot say how neat and exciting the drive down the North Fork road was...from Polebridge to Fish Creek.....30 miles primitive, winding one lane road....in the middle of the western edge of glacier national park...as wild and unspoiled as it gets....

Hope you took warm stuff for your Sun Road trip. We rode the Red Bus, topdown, early am, deep canyons, stiff breeze, light jackets, no hats, no gloves...brrrrrrrrr! Finally warmed up by noon ~G

I think the charm of Many Glacier is its proximity to hiking trails that take you far up into untrammelled regions. We are too old, too stiff, too cowardly to undertake such hikes, but for those who did, the tales they brought back of beautiful uncrowded country made us wish we were young and adventurous again. ~G

We got to St. Mary's yesterday, taking the shuttle on Going to the Sun Road today and on to Many Glacier for a few days tomorrow. Are going to do some low-key hiking with fellow travelers we are meeting at Many Glacier cg---still a bit spooked about bears.

Met JimW and his wife Mary last night, Airstreamers and Forum members here from Omaha. They are also heading west and down the coast for a couple of months.

It was a beautiful drive in from Columbia Falls, and 49 not at all daunting for we-who-do-not-tow, but we didn't see any trailers on it.
