The Hidden Lake Trail At Logan’s Pass

Last year when we visited Glacier National Park, we had to wait until our second week to reach Logan’s Pass.  A summer snow had blanketed the area, and crews were busy clearing the Going To The Sun Road, the east/west road that traverses the entire park. When the road finally opened up, we were treated to some of the most spectacular views the park has to offer.  Logan’s Pass, however, was covered in snow, and the Hidden Lake was frozen and pretty much inaccessible.  So we were particularly excited to revisit this area.  We were not disappointed.  While we still did some trudging up snow-covered areas, the hike was an absolute feast for the eyes.  Here’s a sampling of what we saw:

Wildflowers!  They were everywhere (where there wasn’t snow):

(There was a spotting of a grizzly bear and her cubs.  We steered clear so no photos of her!)

One of the most beautiful stretches of trail I have ever seen:

(I think David was having an OMG moment– I so get it)

Then there was this:

The clouds rolled in just as we were heading back out:

It was pretty perfect.
