Well my first look at the mountains in Glacier National Park were nothing short of spectacular. It is easy to see why the Going-to-the-sun road is considered along the prettiest in the entire world. It is a scary road too with all the twists and turns, blind curves, etc…. Luckily I’m here ‘out-of-season’ so the traffic isn’t too bad. The bad news with that is the road shuts down for construction on Monday so I had to book another hotel on the west side of the park and eat the money on the one I already booked on the East side. Otherwise it would have meant an additional couple hours of driving time each day to enter the park because I would have had to go completely around it and enter from the west side rather than through it.
A failure in my planning this time as I didn’t read everything in the GNP website ahead of booking my hotel. Next time I’ll do a better job planning ahead.
Photo of the Day – Nightfall on the Colosseum
In Rome, Italy back in April we got in after a long day but I just had to go and see the Colosseum before we went to our favorite pizza place there called Antica Pizzeria Fratelli (and home of the Est! Est! Est! wine – which admittedly was MUCH sweeter than I remember it being five years ago when we visited for the first time). I took a number of shots with the moon shining brightly on the historic Colosseum.
