This is the continuation of a trip my dad, my friend Jacob, and I took at the end of July.

Day 5 was my "rough" day of the trip. I've found there's always one day of a motorcycle trip that really stretches you to your limits. This one started off nice enough. As we were packing up the bikes, a fellow camper told us about a great bakery in town called City Bakery. So we decided to give it a shot.
Glacier Lodge. I was hoping to grab a room at a Holiday Inn Express in Browning, MT. But when we called they were all booked up. So we spent a little extra money and stayed here. Ended up being a happy accident through because this place was pretty sweet. The next two pictures were taken the next morning, since I didn't have enough light when we arrived.

Thursday was the day we got to explore Glacier National Park! More importantly we were going to be able to ride Going-to-the-Sun Road. Cross that off the motorcycle trip bucket list:)
We drove to the west entrance of the park so we could then drive back to the east side. This way we'd gain in elevation and I'd get my going-to-the-sun experience. Had we gone east-to-west they'd have to call it Coming-from-the-sun road. (Taps the mic, "Hey is this thing on? I'll be here all week, make sure to tip the waitresses!")
Any hoo, here we are looking north over Lake McDonald.
Logan Pass which is just above the center of this photo. According to Wiki they recorded a new record wind gust on April 9th, of this year, of 139mph at the pass. Sure glad we didn't experience that kind of weather on this day.
Weeping Wall. Click on the link to see a small Youtube video of the water running. It was the end of July, first of August, when we went through so not enough runoff to cover the road.
Many Glacier Hotel. Looks like a neat place to stay. We'll have to come back and check it out.
Lower Two Medicine Lake.
