8/19 Thurs - Glacier part 1
First photo - Bret's T-Rex. He got this in Utah, and we started hatching it in Helena. Supposedly it took 48 hours to hatch. Finally he took off the last bits of eggshell this morning, as we were tired of carting around a plastic bin full of water. It was a fun toy.
We broke camp and were on the Going to the Sun Road by 9 a.m.
First stop: Bret's Glacier. He and Reed both climbed it, but only once as it was windy and cool. After crossing the Continental Divide, we saw Jackson Glacier. It is anticipated that all of the glaciers in the park will disappear by 2030.
