With some sadness to leave the absolute beauty of Glacier, we headed south to Yellowstone National Park today. One of our hosts at the RV park reminded us that Glacier is for the scenery and Yellowstone is for the wildlife, so we had something to look forward to next. The drive south was gorgeous – we opted to drive the west side of Flathead Lake and we can’t wait to come back to this area for some lakeside fun.
