I visited Paul and Kathy in Fortine, Montana for a day. Worried about the weather I shoved off this morning. A band of storms were rolling in over the coastal mountain. Thinking if I wait any longer the worse it will get I packed up and head out towards Seattle.
In the morning I noticed the higher peaks were covered in snow. I headed off to the Eastern portion of the park where I could drive closer to the mountains due to the road closure. This was a little taste of what I might encounter further north.
Got into Glacier later in the after noon. At 10 in the morning they were closing the road so I had to head out this evening. Got some good pics.
