As a kid my Pops and I, along with the boy scouts, took a train up to Glacier national park. I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane and ride the Empire Builder again.

My plan was to head up to the Canadian border and walk south. In through hiking this move is called a flip. There is a saying on this trail, "hit it right," that means, walk through the sections at the right time. It was too early to walk through Colorado, but Montana was just right.

Katrina and Lucas dropped me off. 

The famous Glacier National Park "reds" driven by Jammers. Don't make the mistake of saying you rode a Jammer all day.

I arrived in east glacier 20 hours later.

This hotel, built by the great northern railroad, is a blast from the past. No Disney here, those tree pillars are the real deal.
