We landed in Kalispell MT and drove 3.5 hours around Glacier NP up into Waterton, Alberta. The hotel is as quaint and charming as I expected. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Our room is small, but it has a bed and our own bathroom, so that's all I need. Views are spectacular. Had a nice dinner at the hotel (bison stew) then an early bedtime since we had been up since midnight Alberta time the day before in order to fly and drive there. Did manage to listen to a presentation by the bellhop about the hotel, Waterton, the park and the fires, which was interesting.
We love to day-hike. We have been to all of these wonderfully scenic national parks/areas: Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Yosemite, Sequoia/Kings Canyon, Bryce, Zion, Grand Canyon, Olympic, White Mountains,Big Sur, Rocky Mountains, North Carolina. Glacier and Waterton are up next!... full info
