Day 9: Swimming among glaciers

As I wrote yesterday, we met very good campground where the hot spring and internet are. We spent yesterday evening in the hot spring and it was really crazy view because we were swimming in a pool and there were snow on the mountains around us. There are two pools in the hot springs – hot one with 42C and colder with 32C. We can't keep in the hot pool longer than 15 minutes, that's why we were changing pools many times. But it was really amazing relax. After this, I spent at least two hours with internet, I couldn't help myself 🙂 The night was quite good but I was the only one who slept in the tent. It wasn't raining so much during the night and that means good weather here. In Lonely Planet, there was written this: In Glacier NP, it rains just twice a week. First raining remains for 3 days and second raining starts forth day and remains for 4 days. Simply, it rains here 7 days a week 🙂 There falls 23m of snow in the winter. It's unbelievable. In the morning, we went to the hot springs again because we had a day pass which is valid until noon next day. The temperature was 16C and we were satisfied because it was hot. Then we got on the car and went to hike. Our aim was view to big glaciers. It was a hard job because elevation change was 800m on 4km trail! Jana gave it up a few hundred metres before the finish. I got there but temperature felt down to zero, it was foggy and icy raining started falling. During the hiking I ate bluberries. Forrests here are full of stuff like blueberries, black currant, raspberries and strawberries. We spend rest of the day surfing on internet and hanging out. We must save our energy because tomorrow we will continue to Vancouver which is almost 600km far.
