Waterfalls and a Celebrity Sighting


We hiked to two awesome waterfalls, saw a celebrity on the trail, and ate at a quirky restaurant right outside of Glacier National Park.

We loved this hike! The walk begins in a scorched forest, but the contrast of the colorful wildflowers against the burnt bark was outstanding.

After the short walk in the forest, we reached St. Mary Falls. The reddish-brown color of the trees alongside the fall make it look like an autumn day.

Don’t stop here! If you visit Glacier, continue on to Virginia Falls where you can stand right at the bottom of the pounding waterfall.

Celebrity Sighting – Who Did We See?

On the way back to the car, I exchanged pleasantries with a father and son duo as we passed by. As I was asking how they were doing, I realized the son was Derek Hough from Dancing with the Stars. I’ve seen the show only a few times, but I recognized him right away. I told my husband and he had no idea who he was and thought I was a little crazy. I looked him up on Instagram later and it was him. He had a picture from the day before with him and his dad in Glacier. Unfortunately, I didn’t stop him for a picture. I just thought it was funny that I recognized him hiking on a trail in Montana. His shiny hair must have tipped me off!

Two Sisters Café

We stopped for a late lunch at Two Sisters Café just outside the east entrance of Glacier. We had huge burgers, a local IPA (love the name) and huckleberry pie. It was a great meal and the staff was extremely warm and friendly.

    St Mary’s is such a beautiful place. Two Sisters looks great, I like the prayer flags & the flamingo, fun little touches always interest me.
