Last month Erin and I went on a nice vacation to Glacier because, 1. I got laid off from my temp winter job, and 2. Its only a 2 1/2 hour drive from home. We decided to make a day out of snow shoeing to the top of the Mount Brown Lookout. Well the day we did it, we lucked out and had a window of very sunny and gorgeous weather. We camped out at Lake Mcdonald for 2 nights and we had a lovely time enjoying each others compny and great views. The hike was quite difficult due to it being very snowy and snow shoes on powder is not easy, i dont care who you are!
Enjoy the fun Pictures
