We thought we would just go a little farther and check it out. That type of conversation went on until we ended up going over 10 miles up and over the pass. We hiked 4000 ft. up and down in elevation which took us about 8 hours. We almost stopped and went back several times, but we didn't. I'm so glad we kept on going because the other side was even prettier. I've been to Glacier many times, but this is only the 2nd time I have stopped and hiked. It was great!
|I wanted to sing, "The hills are alive with the sound of music."|
|This is the view almost at the pass. Look, we are almost eye level with the peak across the valley.|
|The trail was a bit steep and shaley at times.|
|Poor Becky fell just before we came to this ice field, so she was a little cautious.|
|This is the pass at 8,200 ft.|
|On the other side there were tons of waterfalls and lots of beargrass (the big fluffy flowers).|
|This is the last waterfall at the end of the hike by the Going to the Sun Road.|
