The Last Day
of our Glacier National Park Vacation
Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

This would be our travel home day.  However, after a nice breakfast at the Glacier Park Inn Bed and Breakfast we still had a few hours to kill before getting to the airport for our flight home.

We decided to check out Whitefish Lake which was kind of in the direction of the airport.  First stop was at a small park along the lake shore.

After that, we drove up Big Mountain which is a ski resort for most of the year.

I was hoping for some better views up here and could have got them by taking the chair lift further up the mountain, but we weren't really sure how long that would take so we decided to skip it.

We stuck with the back roads for the rest of our drive to the airport just to see a bit more of the area.

Our last stop was at a little park along the Flathead River.

It turns out you really don't have to get to the Glacier Park Airport as early as we did.  However, by getting there early we were able to upgrade to exit row seats which gave us a lot more legroom making for a much more comfortable flight back to Atlanta.

It was a great trip and I would definitely like to get back to Glacier National Park again sometime in the future!

I would love to go there once. It's on my bucket list, and after this series, I may move it to a higher priority.

I really like that shot of the barn.
