Wednesday, July 22 –Glacier National Park

Welcome to Glacier National Park! Founded in 1910, the park is a land of mountain ranges carved by prehistoric ice rivers. The vistas seen from Going-to-the-Sun Road, named one of the top 100 scenic drives, are breathtaking and a photographer’s paradise. The best way to travel is via the Red Buses whose drivers are known as “Jammers.”  The antique red buses are both a symbol of the park and a reminder of a time when adventurous travel was done with style.  The name “jammer” is carried over from the days when the buses had standard transmissions and the drivers could be heard “jamming” the gears as they drove up and down the rugged mountainous highway.
