These pictures were taken while at Glacier Park Lodge.
Built in 1913 and extended in 1914, Glacier
Park Lodge was built by the North American Railway. This 280 room
lodge is quite rustic.
The rooms here are extremely spartan. No
phone, TV, fridge, or clock! The shower is just big enough to turn
around while touch the wall and shower curtain. For $160 a night, we
won't stay there again.
The lobby is filled with old cedars 36 to 42
inch in diameter. These cedars were brought from Washington state
because their local trees just weren't big enough. This made us feel
proud. Microsoft, Starbucks, and Boeing aren't the only big things
to come out of WA state.
It is hard to discern, but the table in the
middle of the wood floor is actually half of a huge tree trunk.
See the moose heads on the left and right corners.
