The grand finale of our Glacier National Park trip was the hike to Grinnell Glacier, 9.1 miles in total. This is the longest hike I've ever completed, or even attempted. The first few miles weren't bad at all because there was so much to look at. Every corner you turn, there was something different.
Boardwalk on a marsh? Check.
View of three different lakes? Check.
The cutest wildflowers? Check.
A view to rival the Sound of Music? Check.
Ice in 78 degree Fahrenheit weather? Check.
Walking underneath a waterfall and getting soaking wet? Check.
More wildflowers? Check!
A view of three lakes in one? Check.
A glacier in the shape of a bear? Double check.
Big horn sheep? Check.
And finally, a glacier! Check!
We were just a few feet away from actually standing on the glacier, but this guy held his ground and made it clear we were in his territory. We quickly retreated while he had his eye on his the whole time!
I highly recommend this hike if you are ever in Glacier National Park.
