Montana Trip Highlights / by matt thomas

The baseball season was over, the Red Sox won the World Series. All I had known for the past for nearly 8 months was baseball every day of the week. I wanted to get away, take some time to unwind and get away. The first thing that came to mind was inspiration from the book ‘The Patagonian Express’ which chronicled the author’s trip from Boston to the mountain in Argentina. As much as I would have loved to make the same trek, I didn’t think I had the time to. So, next best option, where could I travel in the United States on Amtrak? Looking at the routes, Montana was a part of the country I had never visited before and Glacier National Park seemed like a destination that checked all the boxes I wanted to fulfill. So after. few days on the train I made it to Essex, Montana. Visited the historic Issac Walton Inn and then made my way to Whitefish and West Glacier. A few days of snowboarding and hiking in the National Park were amazing. Already thinking about when I can go back.
