      In mid to late June, we're going to visit Banff & Jasper first, then drive to Glacier. What are the pros & cons of the west route (via 95/93 to Kalispell) versus the eastern approach (via 2/89 to St. Marys)? Since we will have multiple days in the area, I'm more interested in thoughts about the scenery on the routes and road conditions rather than where to stay and what to see once we are at the park.

We've stayed overnight at Sperry and hiked to Granite Park Chalet and both are well worth the visit.
