We just finished our trip to Glacier NP. We had a great trip! Motel Lake McDonald rooms were very comfortable. I've stayed in many national parks and this lodging was very good. The sack lunches tasted great on the trail. Meals at the lodge were very good too. We hiked, saw
wildlife, learned about the park, and made new friends. Have fun!

Two of us are flying in Sep 13. Is anyone interested in the Grinnell glacier boat trip and hike? We don't have a car and haven't been able to find transportation to Many Glacier Hotel
Cheryl Marklund Sep 13, 2015 at 12:34 PM

I would call the hotel 844-845-3629 and ask them. Not sure if the park's shuttle service is still operating after Labor Day. You probably have to rent a car. Also see the post from Ed and Sharon Koscik. They are coming in on Sept 13.

thank you Cheryl, was thinking about that today!
I am on the same flight, and will look for you too!
thanks for making the reservation!!

To Ginny and Mary (+ anyone else): Arriving Sept 14 via Alaska Air. Made reservations with Glacier Charters for around 2:30PM to go from airport to motel. Go to door #4 outside airport and look for Glacier Charters. The more people that go together the less the fare.

We are coming in a day early and I hired a fishing guide for Monday morning, Sept 14. There is room for one more in the boat if you care to join me and share the cost. Please call me if you have any questions, Ed Koscik 262 719 2206, thanks.

My husband and I are arriving a day early, September 13 at 1:30. We have already arranged a ride with Randy. Is anyone else coming a day early? Maybe we could share a ride. Let us know.

Arriving Kalispell on Sept. 7th around noon if anyone wants to share cab.

Ginny Aug 31, 2015 at 05:02 PM

called Randy @ Glacier Charters, 4068923390, he said it would be best if only one person called and made a reservation for all 5 people, and to call just a few days ahead. He said he is busy with other Road Scholar trips right now!
has anyone made a reservation yet?
Lynn Price Aug 31, 2015 at 05:22 PM

I made a reservat this morn just for myself, saying I wasn't sure how many others were going that day (Sept 7). He seemed to think that was OK.
Ginny Aug 31, 2015 at 08:35 PM

thanks for the information!
Cheryl Marklund Sep 09, 2015 at 01:53 PM

Ginny, I called Glacier Charters and made reservations for 2-4 people for Sept. 14. Our plane arrives at 2:28 Alaska air from Portland. If you are on same flight, we are Jim and Cheryl. We will also look for you.
