Humm. Shouldn't that be Many Glaciers? Anyway, we finally made it to Glacier National Park and met up with Diana in the St. Mary Campground. (Shouldn't that be St. Mary's Campground? I guess they're just not big on s's.) She picked a great level hike for us to do in the Many Glacier area of the park a few miles north of the campground.
It was a beautiful hike along Swiftcurrent and Josephine lakes which you can also travel by boat.
The Glaciers cut spectacular cliffs on their way to extinction. (You're going to see a lot of this particular formation since the sun was right for pictures.)
There were lots of pretty wildflowers along the way.
I just couldn't pick which picture to post, so here's one more.
At the far end of Lake Josephine, we admire Salamander Glacier before heading back. I was thinking Beaver Glacier with that big tail.
It's only another 9/10 mile to Grinnell Lake from our turnaround spot, but since we had already come 2.5 miles, we thought that would have to be another day. I guess that's why the boat ride up the two lakes is so popular.
Although this trail is well used, I guess the plants grow enough to take over. We got a kick out of how lush they were in some areas.
Poor Ron puts up with a lot. Here he seems to be asking, "Well, are you coming or not?"
Funny thing, we did this hike with Diana and did either she or I take a picture of ourselves? No. But we both got lots of pictures of Ron.
