Time has really flown since I wrote last year’s Happy Holidays from Glacier. So much has changed but obviously one thing’s the same, and we’re still spending good quality time in the mountains during the holiday time off! If you’d like some more info about what’s available during Glacier’s off season, the link to the 2014 post below will give you lots of tips for a winter visit.
While access Glacier is really limited during the winter season, it’s no less magical because everything turns into a sparkling wonderland. We love to get out and snowshoe or cross-country ski as many times as possible over the Christmas break.
Whenever we’re out and about in Glacier, we almost always finish that day on the shores of Lake McDonald.
There’s something about taking the time to watch the sunset, and watch the alpenglow filtering across the mountain faces before fading into darkness, even if it is 15ºF!
Every once in a while we stay to watch the stars come out…
…and in this case the full moon cresting over the mountains.
Hope you’re having a wonderful holiday season filled with friends and family, and we’ll see you soon for another Zion National Park adventure!
