Glacier Day 3

Last small hike of the day--a short loop out to Sun Point on St. Mary Lake. Sun Point used to be the location for the Going to the Sun Chalet--built in the early 1900s and operated till WWII, and then fell into disrepair and was torn down in 1948. Not much remains other than a few signs of old foundation. But the views of the lake are still nice!

After finishing this little jaunt, we spent the rest of the afternoon exploring Going to the Sun Road westbound, where we exited the park to grab dinner in West Glacier at the Glacier Highland Restaurant (good pizza, hot sandwiches/burgers, and homemade pie!), and then returned to watch the sunset from a beach/pullout along Lake McDonald.
