Glacier National Park....Happy New Year!

Rather than spend NYE on the train, we decided to utilize all the stops on our rail passes and spend a few days exploring Glacier National Park.  Since we made the decision very last minute we lucked out and had one sold out Inn connect us to the Izaak Walton Inn, who had rooms available and a party going on! The Izaak Walton is located almost across the street from the Amtrak depot and they pick you up at the Essex, Montana flagstop.  Its a quarter mile stroll into Glacier National, and the other side of the road is the Flathead.   We spent NYE and the first of the year exploring the area, eating great food, making new friends and pretty much just relaxing.  Except for the last two miles of our accidental 6 mile snow shoe adventure, it was perfect!
