Experiencing the Magic of Glacier National Park, Montana.

My mind can't help but wander back to the memory of Glacier National Park, located in Montana. I fell madly in love after only a few hours there. We drove to the incredible Logan Pass – the highest point of the Going-to-the-sun road.

Going-to-the-sun road is probably one of the most scenic I’ve ever driven on. Take a full day to explore it. The scenery will surely amaze you.

Our journey to Logan Pass took us to two of the most popular trails. The first one, Hidden Lake trail, is an easy uphill hike approximately 5.4 miles round trip, ending at the lake.

Even in Summer there is snow at high altitudes, so come prepared! Definitely wear some sturdy waterproof shoes! We hiked to the lake lookout, a fun and easy walk that brought us to spectacular panoramic views of the Hidden lake and surrounding mountains.

I was happy to see so much snow in the middle of summer, probably because I’m Russian.

The Highline trail is another remarkable one, starting at Logan Pass and following along the Continental Divide. Round trip, the trail is approximately 15 miles.

The trail hangs off the mountainside, and is definitely not for people with an extreme fear of heights. Even though we hiked only a few miles, it was enough to see that this trail has outstanding views.

Glacier National Park has the best trails I’ve ever been on. Miles of glory that you will want to walk again and again.
