Day 11: Part II: An evening inside and outside Glacier

After checking into our room at the St. Mary Lodge just outside the east entrance to Glacier National Park, we drove over to the Park Cafe for dinner.  This is our kind of place.  Great sandwiches, local color, and just look at that pie menu.

Bacon Burger and Reuben Sandwich

Raspberry Cherry Pie

The evening is often a good time to view wildlife, so after dinner we headed into the park.  There were just a few cars on the road.  By far the biggest treat of the evening was this grizzly bear.  He/she just watched us come to a stop, and when two other cars were stopped to view him, he began lumbering down the slope to the road.

to back up.
