Somewhere in Montana
We were out of the campground by 9am on the road to Montana soon after. It wasn't long before we were listening to country music, wearing our cowboy hats, with the windows open and staring at the plains of the Wild West. We crossed an uneventful border and found ourselves in Montana. Our final border crossing out of Canada.

We stopped in Babb, Montana - a hoppin' town, for a brief visit, then continued to make our way down to Glacier National Park. We were excited to get out of the cities and enter the camping world again. We had lunch, where else but the St. Mary Visitor Center parking lot, and ate, what else but corn, chickpeas and avocado, before making our way into the Park and purchasing our annual national parks pass, which we would use countless times in the next month.

We set up camp at the Rising Sun campground and found a nice spot, which, after looking very carefully, we confirmed as unoccupied. Glacier National Park has a fantastic shuttle service that can help you get through the park without having to take your own car. We took the shuttle that afternoon to Logan Pass, and then on to Apgar, on the other side of the park. Well at least we got near it... until we realized that we would miss the last shuttle back, so got off early and caught the last shuttle back to Rising Sun.
