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.
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.
