I recently came across a list of fee-free dates for Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks. I, of course, was very excited about this. Earlier today I was reminded that the first of these free days is this weekend!
We spent a week camping in Yellowstone a couple of summers ago and it was amazing. I can only imagine how beautiful and peaceful it must be in the winter. Glacier National Park is an incredibly magical place, and it too, must be gorgeous covered in snow. (I have seen pictures, but I’m sure nothing compares with seeing it in person.)
I am not sure if we will be able to manage it or not, but I would love to visit one of the parks this weekend. One of the best things about living here in Great Falls, is how close we are to them. Glacier is about 3.5 hours away, and Yellowstone is only about an hour further.
I’m excited just thinking about it. All the photo opportunities, wildlife, no traffic, you name it. Like I said, I am not sure if we will be able to swing it or not, but if we are, you will be the first to know!!
Anyone else up for a road trip?
NOTE – If you want to go, but are unable to make it this weekend, the parks will also be free on the following days:
- National Park Week April 16-24
- First Day of Summer June 21
- National Public Lands Day September 24
- Veteran’s Day Weekend November 11-13
