Glacier National Park with the Metzgers

Yesterday (Friday 7/9) we had a great day with Bro. and Sis. Metzger and Sis. Leah. We spent the whole day driving and touring through Glacier National Park and it was an awesome day! We sure appreciate the Metzger family and all their kindness and a special thanks to Bro. Metzger for chauffeuring us all day.

The Metzgers arrived just after 6:00 in the morning and we were packed up and ready to go.

The first thing on the agenda was tires. Bro. Metzger discovered that one of the tires on their Suburban was literally coming apart. That meant we HAD to have breakfast at Denny's while waiting for the tire shop to open. Sometimes life is so hard! But all you can eat pancakes for $4 helps tremendously.

We headed North about 8:30 and after a beautiful drive up through Seeley Lake and lots of great fellowship we arrived at the park entrance around noon. The road through Glacier National Park is called "The Going to the Sun Road." It is about 50 miles across and the perfect temps and sunny skies made for a fabulous drive. After another tire change and a side trip up through Many Glacier we drove back across the Going to the Sun Rd. and back toward Florence!

It was a terrific day! Here are a few pictures.


Oh! Don't forget to check my brother's blog for updates on their great Southwest Adventure.


  1. It sure is beautiful. Have you seen the pictures my brother has been posting from Arizona and Utah?

    Also, you don't want to miss the post coming here in a few hours...more food!

  2. I am soooo sorry you folks are being subjected to this kind of scenery and hardship. As a good sister in Christ I want to help bear your load. Move over here I come!

  3. That would be great. I told Bro. John the other day that you all needed to head this direction. We will be looking for you.....
