Montana Vacations : A Step Back in history1114744
Our first vacation in Montana Summer Vacations would be a trip with this young children to Yellowstone Park. The raw nature we witnessed and experienced together brought an amazement far beyond the thrills of man-made beauty I've come across in big cities. Buffalo, moose and elk grazing, bubbling pots of hot pools, geysers spraying fountains of hot water and steam above tree tops allowing you to wonder at first site where this tremendous power comes from, giving rise to the urge to avoid and witness the source of this natural wonder.
There are the winters in Montana, when us desired to try snowmobiling at Yellowstone Park and explore the path system outside of the park leading up mountains in the early morning through snow-packed trees that stand like popsicles, only these are not man-made sculptures but manufactured by the raw forces of wind and snow that reveal the job of God's hand. Snowmobiling in West Yellowstone would be a Montana vacation that continued to draw our household back over the years, never growing sick and tired of the action.
As our children grew older we tried new things, a vacation to Northwest Montana. It began once we travelled with the Mission Valley where Jesuits caused local Indians to found a mission in St Ignatius in 1854. I still remember fondly the Mission Mountains rising majestically towards the east above the Mission Valley of Montana forming a great border to border this remarkable landscape. My heart was inspired by the wonder of God's creation. You have to drove north through Polson and began a visit along Flathead Lake, the greatest freshwater lake within the Western Usa.
If we finally reached Glacier Park, the view of mountain landscapes far exceeded anything I had witnessed, during Yellowstone Park. The walls of mountains in Glacier Park are arranged just like a rock garden with summer flowers adorning their beautiful slopes. The Going-To-The-Sun Road is very little fast highway, but rather a mountain road which you spend some time on as it winds through mountain passages with breathtaking scenes around every turn.
