Needs a date
Needs a location
Sorry this isn't a DC excursion, but I'm toying with the idea of hitting the superlative sunrises and sunsets in GNP sometime in April.
Hey....I spent one year in Montana(attended photo school there)...also I know Glacier well....the best way on the cheap is the campgrounds.($10.00 a night)....my friends an I rented a minivan....and slept in the van for four nights(the fifth night we got a hotel)....Montana is one beautiful state to photograph....Glacier is full of waterfalls,wildlife....and also your ten miles from the Canadian Border(Waterton National Park) so do bring your passport..6hrs. to the south is Yellowstone..Enjoy

I second a road trip simply because a flight is $300 for a round trip + $100 for hotel stay / food until all members arrive. its just not very economical proposition in my book. I much rather spend money of good camping gear and food and in my opinion. also with 4/5 drivers the 2200 mile total drive isn't bad and one can always detour through yellowstone (killing 2 birds at a time) . However for a yellowstone/glacier combo a minimum 10 days is required to take into account fatigue.

I actually crunched numbers and did all the planning for a trip last year. Unfortunately some of my friends had unexpected emergencies that severely limited us . Per my calculations for a 4 person trip the cost is $175-$250 / person for a 7 -10 day trip provided we take someones car ( high mileage cars work better). the road trip takes 4 days for the round trip leaving good 3-5 days to explore depending on whether its a week long trip or not . The price is based on fuel ( camp gear is personal).

This has been long on my to do list ! If the plan is to rent a car and road-trip then count me in . The only caveat being that I wouldn't be able to make it unless its around august 10-20 due to summer research commitments
