Glacier Lake Dayhike - Beartooth Mts

We had a chance to get into the mountains on Wednesday, so we headed for one of the few trails we knew was open.

The Glacier Lake trailhead is at the end of a 9 mile gravel road that passes through a deep river valley. The scenery is spectacular here. Especially enhanced by the beautiful display of wildflowers.We have been hiking to Glacier Lake for 8 years. This is the latest we have ever gone, and the first time we had ever encountered snow on the trail.


There was even some ice still floating on the surface of the lake.

This is also the first time we've failed to catch a fish. Not even a nibble. The folks we met on the trail reported the same.



This is the view back down the valley at the trailhead.

I love to read your blog. The photos of real places are spectacular, and your crafts are great - and give me lots of ideas.

I was kind of disappointed that you don't get many comments, so I decided to leave you one of my own.

Please keep up the good work.
