Since we were camping two days, we woke up leisurely on our third day at Glacier and enjoyed a nice breakfast by the campfire. My husband had woken up first and went for a walk and reported later that there was a very long line of cars waiting to secure a spot; another reason to try and book ahead if possible!
After all the hiking, we planned to take it easy today. We initially planned to take a Red Bus tour, but that fell through (note: remember to make sure you know exactly where you are being picked up!).
We decided to drive down to Two Medicine Lake. Two Medicine Lake is located in the Southeast part of the park and not as crowded as Many Glacier or the parts of the park off of Going to the Sun Road.
We ate a picnic lunch and had some huckleberry ice cream from the gift shop.
We thought about doing some more hiking, but the kids saw that there row boat rentals and we decided to rent a row boat instead. My oldest, who is on crew, volunteered to be our rower. It was a different perspective being in row boat not only compared to land, but even from a boat tour. It was such a peaceful experience.
After the boat ride and a short hike, we headed back to Many Glacier. After we ate dinner, we went to Many Glacier hotel to listen to the evening ranger talk. We also spoke to the concierge who told us there were a few spots on an afternoon tour the next day.
The ranger talk led by the ranger that led our hike the previous morning. It was on birds of Glacier. My husband is a big bird fan and the talk was really interesting.
We ended the day with a campfire and s’mores by the fire.
