Glacier NP Our first day at Glacier was just to take the shuttle buses from the West Entrance over to the East Entrance and back

At the West Entrance, there is the Apgar Village which has stores, hotel, etc.

Glacier NP As we went over to the Apgar Travel Center to get the shuttle bus, we saw these rebuilt 1933 Red Buses originally built by White Company.  The original bodies were placed over new Ford chassis in 2000 so that a tradition of Glacier National Park could continue. Glacier NP
