Beautiful Glacier National Park in Summer

Finally, I'm getting around to doing the last big post from our trip to South Dakota in September.  The last time we were in Montana, in 2017, the sky was filled with smoke from multiple wildfires, and all our plans to explore Glacier Park with our Ricochet friends had to be cancelled.  Both ends of …
