From the Mountains to the Sea, we have it all 01 Aug 2016

 

Here in Glacier Country, Winter is a special time for us.  It’s quieter, but by no means less beautiful. In fact, the weather is more stable for longer periods of time; there are often no clouds hanging around the mountains; resulting in clear, blue skies and perfect photo-capturing mountain views. Below are some of our favourite activities we can recommend for this time of year.
