Nice!

Irene and I can't wait to get back out that way later this season.  Actually we are thinking Glacier, Cascades, Rainier, Olympic, and some other NPs.  We debate if we should leave the Jeep home this trip.

Ron, We met some fellow RV'ers in Florida that gave advice on Glacier: if you want to cross through it on the Going to the Sun road which has AWESOME views, they recommend you leave your car/RV/whatever behind and take the bus tour so your eyes are free to enjoy the view. They recommend that you sit on the same side of the bus each way (always on left or always on right) so that you get to see everything in both directions. They said the bus drivers are taken back and forth numerous times as passengers prior to being allowed to drive it so that they have seen everything and can concentrate on driving the bus safely around the hairpin turns. There are also length (21ft including bumpers) and width (8 ft including mirrors) restrictions as well as seasonal (open late June, last day to drive the entire road in 2013 is Sept 22).

Enjoy your well-deserved trip. We can't wait to get out west and spend time in all those beautiful parks.

Been there, done that and highly recommand the red buses. Worth every penny to let them do the driving. We stayed at the West Glaicer KOA and the bus came right into the campground.

Also love the tetons and yellowstone.
