    This is the visitor's center, with accumulated snow "carved out" so that vehicles and people can move about....

    This has been a report long on pictures, and short on text. Let me know if you have any questions!

    Just found your trip report and fell in love with Glacier National Park! Thanks for making the effort to show us the non-Disney parts of your trip as well!

    Wow! I've thoroughly enjoyed reading your other food and photo reports. I rarely come across to the DCL forum, but I'm really glad I did, or I would have missed this.

    I enjoyed every photo and post very much. Thank you.

    Thanks for stopping by - I definitely recommend the Jammer tour!
    You're welcome! I hope you, too, will get there one day - that is part of the reason I post - I figure that, if I find something so wonderful, and get others excited about it, they may make the effort as well!
    This particular side tour works very well with an Alaska cruise (overnight train ride away)
    My pleasure! Glad to do it.

    Your boys have grown so much! I remember your trip report about the spa - must have been about 5 years ago - in any case, I tried it as a result of your report and pictures.

    You take the most amazing pictures.

    I have enjoyed reading thru your report.

    The pictures of Mt. Rainier were beyond words.
    I hope one day to be blessed with a live view of that!

    Thanks!!

    Wow, I really enjoyed your report. We have been thinking about a cruise in Alaska and your photos really make me want to try to schedule something.

    Your pictures are wonderful. Can I ask what type of camera you used?

    thanks,
    Linda

    Well - thanks a lot for reading, and commenting. We really enjoyed Seattle the day before and after sailing. Not sure how to ensure seeing Mt Ranier!
    Cameras = (a) SLR = Canon Ti3 (b) PnS = Canon D10 (built for underwater, but takes great pictures in regular conditions as well)
