The historic Jammer Red Bus Tours are a great way to see Glacier National Park from a cool vintage 1930's bus. We learned a lot about the history of the Glacier area and about the Blackfeet Indian Nation from our tour guide Ken. The weather was overcast and rainy for most of our 8 hour tour but we did get to see some amazing sights and even got to take the top down for the final stretch!
One of the really interesting stops on our tour was the Izaak Walton Inn. It is a really neat train themed inn right next to the rail lines. You can actually rent converted rail cars to stay in! We learned all about the rail history of this part of Montana and the Great Northern Railway. We came back that night for dinner. It was excellent!
We stopped at the Lake McDonald Lodge for Lunch. Danya can definitely recommend the Elk Burger with Goat Cheese & Huckleberry Jam!
We rode over the Going-To-The-Sun Road which is an exciting ride with breath-taking views and you feel like you are hanging on the edge of a cliff for most of the ride. We definitely recommend sitting on the right side of the Jammer Bus if traveling west to east. That will put you right on the edge!
We stopped at the Logan Pass Visitor's Center and we were in the clouds that day!
The views from the road are spectacular!
We had views of Jackson Glacier from the road. The weather made it pretty spooky looking!
We got to see a bear on our ride around Saint Mary Lake. This funny guy was right next to the road and stopping traffic so everyone could take pictures and the poor Park Ranger lady had to follow him and warn all of the tourists to keep their distance!
Eric got to play helper taking down the top of our Jammer so that we could all enjoy the sun for our ride through East Glacier. Thanks for the great trip Ken!
