We have been to Glacier so many times, but never in the early winter. We drove to West Glacier, entered the park and drove to Avalanche Lake campground for a hike. Along the way we stopped to view the many pieces of McDonald Falls. Everywhere we looked there were what I call spray icicles. These are icicles that form as a creek (McDonald or Avalanche) sprays water on nearby rocks or branches. They were beautiful and in a wide variety of shapes. We visited in early November and there was no snow, but it was slightly below freezing. There is little wind on the west side of the park, and it was actually nice to hike the short circle around Trail of the Cedars. I will try this again next year or maybe in early Spring to see how things change.
