Rockies Road Trip: Day 2

MY first night was cold, I woke up to snow falling with a good dusting covering my tent and car. After putting on more sweaters I made my way down to the lake. The sunrise was not what I hoped for at all but it was still nice.

After packing up it was time to move onto where I was planning on going. I passed through Kamloops, then through Revelstoke and finally arrived at Loop Brook campground in Glacier National park.

After setting up camp I went for a short hike near the campsite that passes by the remains of spiral trestles that allowed for trains to safely make it over the steep grades.

After dinner I decided I wanted to try and get a photo of  a train crossing a bridge, after waiting for 45 minutes with no train and the lighting fading I decided to make it back to camp for the night.
